Pacioretty - Plekanec - A.Kostitsyn
(you can't touch that line... we now see how Kovalev was slowering Plek and Kost) Higgins - Koivu - D'Agostini Kostopoulos - Lapierre - Kovalev
(when you are a star, you make your linemates better. Therefore, Kovalev should look good with those two... and if he is not happy, then he can replace Dandenault, he will see how worst things could be) Stewart - Begin - Dandenault
Higgins - Koivu - Kovalev
Pacioretty - Plekanec - A.Kostitsyn (I would see that line as the PP1, but Carbonneau will probably be forced to put Kovalev on the no.1 PP unit). Make sure Kostitsyn plays on the RW because this is where he belongs.
