My thinking is that the problem is a lack of offense from defense. Seems like they often get trapped in their zone and can't regain control of the puck.
I have no problem with Giroux scoring on the PP (duh), but I have a problem with this line of thinking:
Giroux is hot, therefore the top line is hot, therefore Raffl needs to stay on the top line.
Giroux is getting his points elsewhere. Raffl is not a top line player and the top line isn't scoring like a top line. Shake it up. We need to do better. I'm not content with this trio getting stalemated.
