To continue, why oh why is Teuvo Teravainen playing on the fourth line?!  He had a goal and an assist in Game 1, and a power play goal in Game 2.  He has shown that his vision and his calm demeanor and his speed make him a huge offensive weapon.  Please, Coach Q!  I’m just a girl, but I’m pretty sure he would be more of an asset than Andrew Shaw or Kris Versteeg up on one of the top 3 lines.

The shutdown line of Andrew Desjardins and Marcus Kruger is playing really well and doing just what they are supposed to do.  Like I already mentioned regarding Andrew Shaw, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.

Based on the above arguments, here are the lines I would LOVE to see rolled out for Game 5.

Sharp/Toews/Hossa

Saad/Richards/Kane

Versteeg/Vermette/Teravainen

Desjardins/Kruger/Shaw

What do you think the lines should be for Game 5?  We will find out on Saturday night.  The puck drops at 7 pm.  This party is just getting started!

FOR THE CUP!!!
