Alright we need EGG line for next game. Plek was trying to follow the 2 kids and wasn't able to. Lines should be

Galchy-Eller-Gally
Pac-Plek-Brière
Bourque-DD-Gionta
Moen-Bournival-Prust

I really liked the fact MT changed the lines up. Clearly something needed to be done

Rumor on the street is that we shuffled the lines. What are our new look lines boys?

Alert the Tank committee to stand down and the Stanley Cup Parade committee to get to work.

Good game from Budaj. Solid when truly tested. Jekyll and Hyde defense continues as they were more solid tonight.

Positives have been the positives the first 4 games. Chuckie, Gallagher, Eller and Subban.

Markov, Prust and Moen were there usual selves.

Pleks still doesn't look right but was getting better and was Briere.

Negatives are still negatives. DD and Gionta were awful again.

Until the 3rd period I was sure DD was not even dressed tonight. He was so invisible.

Bournival's acceleration is impressive.

Would love to see him stay in the lineup.

Well I wouldn't say incredible, he didn't make any hard saves (like the ones that the defense was handing out against Calgary last night) but he was solid nonetheless.

Eller was pretty dumb in that final stretch, took a dumb penalty and went for the shot even though he hadn't crossed the red line yet. Subban did a similar dumb play that could have made this game much scarier but Edmonton hit the post instead of scoring.

Anyway random notes:
- Galchenyuk in his prime is a scary thought, oh my. That vision and those hands are lights out. He's really picking up on the physical and defensive aspect of things. I'm glad the Oilers picked up Yak instead of Gally.
- Gallagher doesn't seem to be affected the 2nd year slump.
- Plekanec picked up his game in the 2nd half, made some important plays defensively.
- Gionta and Desharnais is a disastrous duo. They're so ineffective it's not even funny. I felt bad for Bourque who had a decent game.
- Gorges played his best game.
- Our 4th line made the difference last night and they did the same tonight, in a positive way though. Prust was a beast tonight, blocked a tons of shots.
- Beaulieu needs more time in the AHL to work on his defensive game, he's pretty soft on the puck.

Eller the most used forward at 20:01. I'm starting to like how Therrien is giving out ice time.

Thought that line looked pretty solid in all three zones.

Meh. They didn't do much outside 1 or 2 shifts. Sloppy passes, no chemistry.

Played like garbage for most of the game, some seriously glaring holes. Edmonton handed us the win but Gallagher and Galchenyuk had their motors running for most of the game and set up some nice plays.

Meh.

I don't see how either player was "awful." Not producing? Not playing good whatsoever? Sure.

They didn't hurt the team though, especially since they are hidden on a line together now. They need to start producing but they didn't do anything that terrible tonight.

I do feel sorry for Bourque though.

58% FO.

He's definitely not rebounding how I hoped he would, but he wasn't "bad" tonight. Just mediocre. Obviously, that's not good enough though. But there were a few positives to his game tonight, unlike the first 2 1/2 games.

Gotta give props to Prust.

Also, it looks good for the two "gals" and I think Plekanec will eventually settle in.

Eller's new line has "rust", but watch out; they absolutely dominated O-zone time and if they get the feel for each other, the goals will start coming.

DD's line was obviously the most disjointed, but DD actually generated some turnovers, although he remains extremely. easy to "pin" and stonewall.

And Bournival's line did well for a 4th line.

They gotta switch Eller and pleks for the next game though.

Patches Pleks Briere
Gally eller gally
Bourque DD Gio
Moen Bournival Prust

Eller and Patches dont seem to have very much chemistry.
