Hi folks. Not trolling, just looking for a little pre-series info. Assuming that Thornton will play, what are the line combinations we can expect to see from Boston in this series? I can tell you that the best Montreal media sources have the Habs lines as the following for Game 1:
This could change, but these are the lines used most recently in practice. Thanks and may the best team win.
PS.....I see the difference in this series being goaltending. Statistically there isn't a lot to choose between these teams. Whomever is the hotter of Theodore/Raycroft wins. I like Raycroft. I watched him play a lot in junior with Kingston. He's the real deal. Only question will be playoff experience. Cheers.
Thanks. Good depth and balance to those lines. My worry from a Montreal perspective is that the Habs 4th line is a mish-mash of dissimilar players. Kovalev is really struggling. Perreault is so bad defensively he's never even met Jose Theodore. Dowd is not Adam Oates. What a strange combination
