I would prefer Poehling on the wing with Domi, mostly because he works in the corners and goes to the front of the net

 

Domi played his best with a Shaw type of player on his wing

I wouldn't be surprised if he is given 4-8 games in a row. Reilly got multiple games even if sometimes he didn't seem to merit them. I hope Kulak plays well enough to push the CH to trade someone

Poehling or Armia but not both with Domi.

 

I wrote recently that we had a fourth line that would have been a 3rd with some of the recent CH teams; and here we go with Thompson and Cousins on the third.... maybe the bottomlines are flipped depending of match ups, and at the end of the evening their TOIs show Suzuki/Tatr playing more. If that is the case, it would mean they would have had a good offensive game

I'm not even sure why he was sitting for Reilly.

Folin is listed as both a scratch and playing on the third pair.  Do we know who Kulak is playng with?

It's Fleury - thanks for catching that.  I've fixed it in the first post.

Yeah, I’m not so confident that Byron is the right guy for the second line, in place of Drouin. Maybe Suzuki instead? But Suzuki is on the fourth line with the newly-demoted Tatar and Lehkonen.

 

 I guess we’ll find out soon enough whether this works.

He has had some gaffs, as all young(ish) d-men do.

Don’t like the new lines. 3rd and 4th lines look more like a 4a, 4b.. 

Well, maybe need more forwards focused on defense, as team has given up too many goals; but, has had balanced scoring.

Tatar Suzuki and Lekonnen looks like a line that could surprise  with some offense.  Especially if they're going against 3rd pairing D.

there has been good balance on the 4 lines so far, Best in the league right now. Reason for I not in favour of such  a big mixup. But you do have a good point on adding more defensive balance on all four lines .

I said recently that if we were the Dallas Stars, our top line would be Drouin-Domi-Gallagher. Two thirds of the way there. Though admittedly, and obviously, the balance in the lineup is better like this.

Atta boy, Webs. Most players would try to score on their first attempt. 

 

Big Brain Weber breaks an opposing player's leg on his first attempt, THEN  scores on his second. 

 

PPG # 100 in Weber's career.

And a nice pass from Lehkonen to an open Thompson at the opposite side of the net to make it 2-0.

 

Let's see if they can keep this up for another 50 minutes, though.

Helluva pass from Lehkonen to Thompson for that one. Also helluva handlebar Nate is rocking for Movember.

Wow. LA's power play is even more inept than ours last year.

Not sure I agree with the penalty call, but happy with the result nonetheless. Weber PPG # 101.
