Media is working hard here. I've seen on twitter that Parent was told there was no lineup change, but Carcillo said he's playing, and JVR said he doesn't know. Someone told ASF that Bartulis is playing.
Just not often enough...He was on the ice for 3 ga in gm one. He was constantly chasing the play. Maybe he plays when we're back in Philly. Right now Carcillo is just the spark we need. It's possible that Lavy had this planned all along.
But lets say they recreate that BCL line... Powe is not a top 9 forward! Giroux's line will have good defensive responsibility but when they get secondary scoring from that line the Flyers are so much better. I've agreed with Lavs all season, but this time...i shake my head.
I'd rather see what others have suggested by putting Carcilo with Richards and Gagne, and then Carter with Giroux.
If there's line juggling, and that's the talk, then I think that's the move. Carter plays left side and has a great angle to let fire from. Carcillo keeps the checkers dogging Richards and Gagne honest.
Lavy would be a fool to break up Hartnell/Briere/Leino after the Game 1 they had.
