thanks! i've been waiting for this game.

are those the actual or projected lines? seems a bit odd if martin is trying to build chemistry.

it's still experiments time for tonight as the massive cuts will be tomorrow

now where's mara? has he joined hammer in the bermuda triangle??

Edit: can a mod fix the thread title, it's game #5 not #4, thank you :)

I like those lines. Should give us an interesting look at what some of our guys can do! Gomez and Gionta back together. Pacioretty with an opportunity to forecheck for them! Ben Maxwell getting a shot between, arguably, our two best goal-scorers. Could be a dress rehearsal for the regular season should someone get hurt! Latendresse, Lapierre, and D'Agostini could be a good energy, youth line, with some added scoring touch. :D

argh. we have a new enough team that i'm not loving the extended experiments. i understand why the roster's still so big but i don't get why martin is trying gomez on the wing and cammalleri at center.

at least neilson is in the lineup tonight and markov of course. ;)

nice line up tonight should be an interesting game. im excited to finally see gomez and gionta working side by side. wouldve liked to see subban play also. and neilson has been a nice surprise i hope he plays a couple games this year and plays the way hes been playing.

Its my first post by the way :)

It is strange that he has only played one game. Is he nursing an injury??

Maybe they just really wanna see what the young guys can do. I see that the line-ups have one young guy paired with a veteran on D, maybe they just figured they didn't need to play him. But it does seem kind of odd that Gorges is playing two nights in a row.

gorges needs the practice, imho.

I agree and so do a lot of players, but if you're talking about the giveaway goal last night, that was not entirely his fault. He recieved a pass from Carle right in his skates which made him trip up a bit and then he lost the handle. I think that Gorges is underrated and can be quite an offensive as well as defensive force this year.

i'll give you that there have been times when i've thought gorges was underrated. last night wasn't one of them. he played sloppy d most of the night, imho.
