Pesky Sens again? :4322:  Pesky, pesky, pesky!  Mitchell taken off 4th line is gonna nullify that line.  DD centering Hudon and Terry is NOT going to make any impact.  Once again, dependent on Byon-Galchenyuk-Radulov line alone to deliver the goals outside of PP situation.

Looking at Price's record and how he's been playing it's always tough to bet against a win.  But yeesh... these lines may be the worst we've seen this year
