Lines against Capitals

Postby danish_penguin on Wed Nov 20, 2013 7:55 pm

These are the Penguins lines for tonights game against the Caps. (Source: Post-Gazette)

Chris Kunitz - Sidney Crosby - Beau Bennett
Pascal Dupuis - Evgeni Malkin - James Neal
Jussi Jokinen - Brandon Sutter - Brian Gibbons
Tanner Glass - Joe Vitale - Craig Adams

Do you agree with them?

Personally I would put Beau Bennet on the 3rd line and try James Neal with Crosby and Kunitz. Both are good snipers and Crosby is the best playmaker in the game of hockey. Then the 2nd line with Jokinen, Malkin and Dupuis. And I would use the two headed monster a lot more - especially in the last 5 minutes of the periods.

I'm cool with trying something new (like this, from last night)...Malkin-Neal need a defensive conscience...Bennett needs a chance to think on Crosby's level. I'd like to see it for a few games certainly...

Yeah, better to stick with soemthing for a few games and see what works / what doesn't. Maybe Malkin and Neal play better with a more defensive guy on their line, but maybe Dupuis isn't that guy. You learn things from trying out new combos... (at least, "you" being the casual observer. Definitely can't speak for HCDB.)
