Keep in mind AK46 has been on the LW like all year, once he gets comfortable again on that right side he'll be racking up the goals.

I also really liked Tanguay's game yesterday, not just his offense but he was excellent on the forecheck and was very good in the corners.

I agree that this line is very powerful. It packs a punch with goal scoring, play making, and finesse. Its about time carbaneau comes to his senses!

Finally something good out of Carbonneau... (he was spying in HF board anyways...)

Really good line there. Hope they can keep up.

It took a while but it finally happened. Im happy that the line worked up well in the first game so Carbo will not change it but seriously, i think most of us already knew that line would work (at least better than the Akost-plek-kovy line)

I just hope Carbo won't break it anytime soon.

He is comfortable already, Koivu and Tanguay give him the chance to skate freely and cover-up his space, that line isi think the best match with any players on the team possible.

It's like when you give someone options and they reply yes or no.

Next step is Higgins-Plekanec-Kovalev

Then we will have 2 great lines.

i'd muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch rather have Pacioretty on that line, crashin and bangin and diggin the puck out for the other guys. Plus he can actually pass. Higgins can't pass to save his life and you know when he gets the puck he's gonna shoot the thing right away even if there's a better play developing

There is no reason to break this line up.....keep Andrei on the RW where he is comfortable and effective and away from Kovalev.

Carbo will likely put him back with Pleks and Kovy though and put Dandenault on the RW with Tangs and Koivu.....we all know how Carbo thinks...or doesn't think!!

Imagine how cool it would have been if Jokinen would have centering Tanguay and Andrei.

A little reminder of Tanguay's previous handiwork:

I wouldn't be entirely surprised to see Latendresse get a try on that line. I think the new version of Latendresse might be a good fit.

I'm hoping to see Latendresse with Lapierre perhaps with Higgins on the RW in a more shoot first role. My thinking is Latendresse likes to pass, Lapierre seems to be learning how to bass, and Higgins has a great wrist shot but can't seem to get it off often enough.

That way you'd get to keep the Tanguay - Koivu - AK46 and the MaxPac - Plek - Kovalev together, thus creating some stability.

Did you see his gigantic smile on the bench after he scored?

The guy has a 1000 watt smile hidden behind that suffering Russian scowl.

Thank God for the win. The Hab brotherhood of fans were getting so dejected... and hysterical, I might add.

I think Lats is a shooter more than a passer -- but he can do both, so when he's paired up with Lapierre (shoot, shoot, shoot) he does tend to pass more. Lats has a good shot -- probably better than Higgins', and he seems to bury it more often.

I wouldn't use Lats on LW and Higgins on RW -- they tried it once last year with Koivu at C and it didn't work too well. Lats was a RWer in junior, he should be at RW if that line materializes.

I'd be fine with that. Either way I'd put both Higgins and Lats with Lapierre. That could make a pretty good third line.

I really like that line. Tanguay is such a good passer, AK will definitely benefit from him. Koivu is Koivu, hardworker as usual.

I hope Carbonneau sticks to it...enough of the line juggling already.
