Brooks is saying Brassard will move to center.

Brassard is definitely back to center, at least.

As expected Miller will be scratched with Brassard moving back to middle.

It's disappointing but understandable. Miller would be facing his toughest test yet defensively with the penguins.

Hopefully miller is back in the lineup next game

Hagelin - Richards - Zucc
Kreider - Stepan - Nash

I wish AV would reunite Zucc with Kreider and Hags with Nash, but that is never going to happen. He is probably going to force Cally into the top-6 and kill that line's offence.

What I want:

Hagelin-Stepan-Nash
Kredier-Richards-Zuccarello
Pouliot-Brassard-Callahan
Boyle-Moore-Dorsett

What we'll get:

Kredier-Stepan-Nash
Zuccarello-Richards-Callahan
Hagelin-Brassard-Pouliot
Boyle-Moore-Dorsett

Meh, on second though option 2 doesn't look THAT bad. Still prefer the top one, HSN were filthy together last year.

Would have rather sat Brassard to send a message and let Miller stay at C. Brassard has 1 point 5-on-5 in the last 8 games. At least Pouliot is in though - can't sit him with the streak he's been on.

Brassard has been an integral part to the teams PP success, its not like he's doing nothing

Brassard has less than 1 5v5 point per 60 minutes this season, which is beyond brutal. Carl Hagelin has more 5v5 goals per 60 than Brassard has points.

Evgeni Pyatt will score tonight!

I'd rather see Poo stay in the lineup. No hate for Dorsett or Miller, just sayin'

Pouliot and Cally on the same line might be good.

Big mistake. Miller is playing with confidence and a big reason why that line has been effective. Boyle should sit AINEC.

We are on pace for 192 goals this season, despite our best power play in years.

Incidentally, if everything stays as it is, we'll have been in the top 50% in PP twice since the 04-05 lockout, and those will be the only two seasons where we missed the playoffs.

There's your weekly pointless fact courtesy Fitzy.

Callahan has the C, Richards has the A, why doesnt Zucc get the Z? would be so epic, fans would have loved if they did something like that for fun

I like that fourth line. They have done what they are supposed to do.

Miller is a third line player. So unless he is beating out brassard, or if brassard takes 2c and Richards goes to the bench then miller isn't going to play.

One has a future here and the other does not. Pretty cut and dry.
