I don't think so. Kovalev said he wanted to stay witht the same linemates to keep the chamestry. I suppose the Habs will stick to those lines with minor changes with injured players coming back. Unless we start falling like 3-1 in the series where we could see some lines changes...but that won't happen .

That would be the best possible first line, but 2nd line would be too weak.

Kovalev asked gainey to stop mixing up his line. He wants to stay with Ribs and Bulis so they can keep working on the chemistry and be ready for the playoffs.

Unless the Habs play awful in the final two games they will keep thier current lines.

And Gainey will listen to what Kovy says and then do whatever the hell he wants to do. I think he'll stay close to what they have now, it offers the best balance imo.

Higgins - Koivu - Ryder
Bulis - Ribeiro - Kovalev
Murray - Plekanec - Zednik
Begin - Bonk - Downey

Markov - Komisarek
Souray - Rivet
Bouillon - Dandenault

Assuming everybody's healthy, that's what I'd like to see. Not perfect, but IMO the best and most balanced lineup we can ice at this time of year taking into account chemistry, hot streaks and experience, which is usually a big factor in the playoffs.

Although I do not hold either of Zednik and Bulis in high estime, I feel the fact they started clicking with their linemates and scoring at this opportune time, on top of being vets, means to me, Perezhogin is the odd man out. His lack of production combined with his lack of experience means he'd have to sit until someone else falters.

I honestly think Downey is the guy to sit in the pressbox come playoff time, assuming everyone is healthy. The only reason we got him in the first place is he shoots right, and no one else on the team does, except Ryder. That's his only qualification. He's a 4th line guy that can't kill penalties and has no real talent. Works his tail off, but that's not enough for the playoffs.

I know everyone loves the guy, and he gave out potatoes or something, but there's no room for him in the lineup.

Higgins-Koivu-Ryder
Bulis-Ribeiro-Kovalev
Zednik-Plekanec-Perezhogin
Begin-Bonk-Murray

I'd even switch Bonk and Plekanec, aside from one pass last night Pleks has done absolutely nothing good in the last month when it's 5-on-5.
