Ehlers is so good in OT with the extra space. I’m glad Maurice has finally started playing him consistently. Copp and Perreault? I guess you kind of have to put them out there when you deplete your bottom 6 with old, slow guys.
I didn’t hear anything about Harkins being hurt, but I don’t know. Looks like Poolman is back tonight, so I’d be shocked if Niku isn’t the odd man out, even though I think he’s looked solid. I’d pull Beaulieu, but doubt Maurice will.
I agree, I hope to see some changes tonight. The easiest to make would be on the 4th line. I’d love to see a line of Harkins, Gustafsson and Vesalainen.... I know that will never happen, but at least 2 of those guys should get injected into the lineup. Bring some speed and skill into the bottom half and let them develop.
