It would be really dumb to mess with the 2 lines right now. Nash is not back yet so no need to ponder it yet. They can call the CK-Step-Zook line the 3rd line. Just leave them together. Its not about who has the biggest name or the biggest skill. Its about how well a line plays as a unit.
That's another thing. With these games lately my heart doesn't sink when the opposing team scores. Because I know we can come back. It's a really good feeling that was hard to have most of the beginning of the year.
POTG: Hagelin, he creates so many chances but his linemates keep blowing them. Has 8 points in 7 games, but that number could be above 10 the way he is playing. And that's with almost no PP time at all. Currently the best forward on the team, and I'm not sure if it is close.
The Good: Richards, Streiderello (picked up their play big time in the 3rd, Kreider's penalty notwithstanding), McDonagh, Staal-Strålman pairing, Dorsett, Boyle.
The Bad: Moore-Del Zotto.
The Pyatt: Pouliot.
All in all a sloppy game, where they allowed Florida to surge back at times. But the Rangers looked really dangerous when they were on.
Del Zotto played well today. Don't be a blind hater.
