Lou, you're making the same mistakes your coaches made
Coach Lamoriello is making the same mistakes his coaches did in the past: trying get match-ups on the road. It's funny because he gave an interview on OLN before the 3rd period saying that the Devils had to play like they did before. Well, Lou, Devils got into the playoffs by rolling four
lines. The Wiemer-Rasmussen-Janssen line had only one shift in the game
That one shift could have been the key to scoring that first goal, Monday. Eric Staal double shifts, so why try keeping the Pandolfo-Madden-Marshall line on him? When Staal is playing right-wing with Doug Weight, why not use the Elias-Brylin-Langenbrunner line? Maybe this will get Elias to be more alert on defense. Instead dropping down to circle when the puck is on his side in the corner, he waiting for break-out pass that's not coming!
Why is Brad Lukowich and Rafalski killing penalties!! I rather use Hale and Klee or rotate them with Rafalski! Lukowich is a defensive liability!
