We need a breakout game tonight from Jagr, Straka and Sykora. I liked that renney had them together the other night but it didn't give them the spark that I thought it would. I would be nice to welcome Miller to Broadway with a hat from Jags.
Play the ohm line!! (yeah I know it's nerdy, but I like it and think it's cleverer and more apt than most line names, kudos to whoever came up with it)
I'm alittle nervous about starting Lundqvist 4 games in 6 days right after he complained of being 'mentally tired', but I guess the thinking is Weekes will get the start on saterday and that Henrik will get a week of after tonight.
Edit: aparently the message board doesn't support the ohm (omega) symbol, what a pity.
Seriously, Rucinsky needs a benching. He's been useless for a few weeks now, no idea why he's still handed prime playing time.
He was moved down to the 2nd line vs. the Devils and had 2 assists. Rucinsky is underappreciated as a hockey player IMO. I agree, he has not looked himself the last week or so and unfortunately, he let it get to him defensively and he stopped hustling on a couple of costly occassions. He will take a penalty every once in a while but he is a great two way player. I think his problems started when he was placed on the point. If I were Renney, I would put Poti or Sykora with Tyutin on the top unit. Those lines really worked against New Jersey, and want to see them again.
