Following an uninspired loss versus the Islanders, Claude Julien shuffled his offensive lines.

The first line is unchanged, whereas Artturi Lehkonen remained on the second trio alongside Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher, a change we saw midway through the game versus New York. Paul Byron was slotted with Tomas Plekanec and Andrew Shaw on the third trio.
The biggest change is on the fourth line, where both Sven Andrighetto and David Desharnais found their way back into the lineup. With their addition to the fourth line, Michael McCarron and Brian Flynn practiced as the extra forwards.
As for defence, the only change was Greg Pateryn sitting in favor of Nikita Nesterov. Unfortunately the Webelin experiment is apparently not at an end, yet.
