Redden back for Game 3

per tsn.ca, ice chips

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/feature/?fid=10460&hubname=

This will help the team immensely in getting the puck out of our end...

Chris Kelly out, per sportsnet.ca connected...Arnason in?

The team can rally behind this motivation

Excellent news!

Hopefully the team will be angry.

Picking up a win in Game 3 would negate all this talk about "home ice advantage" being stolen back by the Lightning and put pressure on them to win one at home.

With Kelly out and Redden back in, would you like to see Schubert move up to forward, or have Tyler Arnason slide into the lineup?

Schubs for sure on the 4th with Kelly and Vermette
But then again Arneson could surprise us after being sat

I want Schubert in there as a forward.

He's the only guy on the team who is guaranteed to go hard into the zone and initiate physically every time, while still getting back on the back-check.

My guess is that Arnason will move into Vermette's spot between Neil and Varada, while Vermette plays the left side with Spezza and Heatley. The other two lines will remain unchanged. I think that is less because Arnason is higher on the depth chart and more because he can play centre. Playing Schubert would be more disruptive, because it would force them to do more extensive line juggling.

There SHOULD be line juggling anyway.

The team sucked 5 on 5.

At least Schubert can be relied upon to be physical. Neil, Varada and Co. were MIA.

Great news (about Redden) but I would rather see the cash line back together or maybe move Eaves up.

I think Murray will go with:

Vermette-Spezza-Heatley
Schaefer-Fisher-Havlat
Eaves-Smolinski-Alfredsson
Varada-Arnason-Neil

however, I would also insert Schubert into the lineup and take out Varada...

Well, if they do go with Schubert and reunite the Cash Line, which probably isn't such a bad idea, I suppose there's a good chance we will see something like this:

Heatley Spezza Alfredsson
Schaefer Fisher Havlat
Eaves Smolinski Neil
Schubert Vermette Varada

or

Varada Smolinski Eaves
Schubert Vermette Neil

I presume Havlat will move in to take Kelly's place on the PK. I thought he should slotted over Heatley in that department anyway.

This is terrific news as the team needs Redden badly. I'm worried where Volchenkov's confidence is after last night's game.

Vermette deserves more ice time.

Is Arnason hurt, or just not able to crack the lineup? If it's the latter, what's his deal, just not that good or the coaches don't like him or something?

Apparently its an acute case of the fatandsucks.

I hope Redden will be up to it, probably his family told him that it would be good for him to play, but will his head be in the game

Sure, he could be bad, but he is a million times better on the PP than Pothier and at least 20 times better than Meszaros at this point in time, and probably 10 times better than Chara on the point on the PP.

So, hopefully our special teams will continue to click at a fairly good rate. PP scoring is something we've lacked in past series and that's definitely one silver lining to be proud of, along with our penalty killing and shorthanded chances.

Clearly, it's the 5 on 5 play that is sinking the ship at the moment. I think the team is starting to realize that, with the 2 shots in the 3rd driving the point home rather poignantly.

As per the Sens Web Site: Kelly a game day decision and if he can't play Arnason steps into the lineup.

Well, it's handy if Spezza gets thrown out? Heh. Anyway, didn't Murray sneak Vermette on in the first game to take some important draws, or did I dream that?

Even in Game 2, when the Ca$h line was temporarily reunited, Spezza was removed for a defensive zone faceoff and Vermette took it, and when the puck was cleared from the zone he left and Spezza hopped on.

Anyone else notice this?

Turns out, they were both hot on faceoffs which is why I think Spezza was allowed to take the ones in the offensive zone in the closing seconds.

Apparantly it is his "conditioning"......he is drastically out of shape. He could hide the fact with Chicago but now that he is playing on an ultra-fast team like the sens, it really shows.

Hopefully the kelly injury will bring him back into the lineup. I'm not a big fan of playing Shubie on D and up front. We are going to have alot of injuries on D if we have a long cup run, so lets just let Shubert sit (staying healthy) until he is needed on D again.
