1st line: Obvious
2nd line: Obvious
3rd line: Start 95% of their shifts in the D-zone, when playing against a team that has a line like the Ovechkin line it's crucial that we can't be exposed. This is the best possible line for that
4th line: Colton Orr would often be replaced by someone else on that line for most shifts, he'd do his thing, throw some hits and fight and then we'd double shift another player in his spot.
James Van Riemsdyk -- Tyler Bozak -- Phil Kessel
Joffery Lupul -- Nazem Kadri -- Nikolai Kulemin
Clarke MacArthur -- Mikhail Grabovski -- Matt Frattin
Leo Komarov -- Jay McClement -- Colton Orr/Frazer McLaren

1st Line: Don't mess with Chemistry
2nd Line: Kulemin's board work is something not many players can bring to Kadri's line. He creates more space for Kadri and Lupul.
3rd Line: A line that can match the other team's top line speed but at the same time can pin them in their own zone.
4th Line: Pure Energy and saves McClement's legs for when we really need him.

Nikolai Kulemin -- Jay McClement -- Leo Komarov
James Van Riemsdyk -- Tyler Bozak -- Matt Frattin

With these lines shutting down other teams for the last couple minutes of winning games.

And a hypothetical question: Do you consider resting Dion for 1 or even 2 games if you manage to get a point tonight and a Winnipeg loss? He's averaging over 25 and a half minutes per game and with the amount that the Leafs have relied on him, do you think about giving him a game off on thursday or maybe one of the back to backs to end the season?
I wouldn't, the Leafs have a 3 day break from Sunday to next Tuesday .. Should give the team a good amount of rest before 3 games in 4 nights to close out the season

There is a very real chance TO could actually get home ice advantage against Montreal. They are only 2 games up on us and our last game is against Montreal. So if we can get within 1 game of Montreal before the end of the season we could potentially get home ice advantage.

Montreal is in a HUGE slump and is a perfect time to take advantage!!

Should be a good one! Hopefully the Leafs can bury early, quiet the home crowd. Look forward to seeing how Komarov does against Ovechkin. Burn the boats!

If he traveled with them I'm assuming he's playing.

So this is good.

Would be nice to win. Won't be upset if we don't. Washington is just as hot, if not hotter.
