Chara might have to play even more since their blue line is weakened. I think this is a very winnable game. We just need some clean chances and good puck possession. Keep the pressure on and rask will let in a few
I think this is where we find out how much character the team has, after a tough game last night, facing a rested Bruins team.
It will be hard, but if we can start the 1st period like we did the last couple of games but at least score 1 or 2 and get on top of them i think we win, the longer it stays 0-0 the advantage is going to go the Bruins way.
Unit 1: Ryder - Plekanec - Gallagher/DD
Unit 2: Pacioretty - Eller - Galchenyuk/DD
We need Eller to be a PP staple. One of the only forwards on the team that can skate the puck into the zone AND use size in front of net.
Right now, the powerplay 100% on Markov/Subban
I like this also maybe DD at center or who ever is hot in the faceoffs, the D pairing i agree but if they are tired because they are on the ice and tired before the penalty i would rather see Bouilion and Emelin this is where we are missing Diaz
Kind of surprised to be honest back to back and Budaj did really well last game in Boston.
I've been wanting to see Price in b2b games. Budaj did do fine and all. But really, end of the day, the team will go somewhere in the playoffs based on what Price does, so get him in there against the top teams. Keep him as razor sharp as possible. Even tire him out, fine. He hasn't been all that busy in recent games, though. It's getting to crunch time soon. Keep rolling Price out there, I say. Until he gives a sign of NEEDING the break.
