I'm going to go ahead and predict Pacioretty-DD-Gallagher get destroyed defensively (DD-Gallagher short preview was awful vs Leafs), Galchenyuk struggling playing with Cole, and any offense comes from the 1st and 4th lines.
Awful lines. Especially the Galchenyuk line.. What the **** is he supposed to do with that?
Chill out. Desharnais and Cole isn't working out, as well as Galchenyuk with Pacioretty. DD had great chemistry with Pacioretty in Hamilton, so hopefully Pacioretty scores his first today. Offensively, it can't be worse than against the Panthers.
I'd still want to somehow see Eller in either of those two lines... But, I'll give them a chance.
Well with Boucher and Budaj in tonight, I think it's safe to say it won't be another 1-0 game. It sucks I have to work but that's why I love twitter.
I don't mind the lines for tonight, but I don't like the fact that MT is pretty much scared to touch Plekanec's line. I know he didn't have stable wingers at all last year and it is working pretty well right now, but these are the lines I'd like to see:
Patch - Pleky - Gio (Try to get Patches going. He's a shoot first guy and Pleks will get him the puck)
Bourque - Galchenyuk - Cole (Two big bodies who will go to the net and dig pucks out of the corners for Chucky)
DD-Eller-Gallagher (Eller and Gallagher are gritty for their builds, might be alright)
Moen - Prust - Armstrong (Perfect energy line to match up with the Flyers)
