Not that I'm against Orr playing in this one just because of Brashear but it's doubtful that he'll get as much ice time as Brash unless we're getting blown out--so his ability to stop Brashear from running our players is going to be limited. Anyway do you really think that Donald is not going to finish his checks because Colton is (or maybe isn't) in the lineup? I don't think so. Anyway they met up once this season and Colton was more or less just holding on. Hopefully if they do meet tonight Colton will show a lot better.
This games been a long time coming. Niemo-Betts-Ward, would be a good third line. Would like to see Lundqvist in net, but hope Weekes can hold it together and play well. If Kasper can't go I guess we'll see what Pock can do. Rather see Hollweg than Orr on the 4th line. This is a must win and 2 huge points for NY.
