Team Cherry just finished the game-day skate, and here are the line combinations they used:
-Sean Couturier-Shane Prince
-Ryan Strome-Ty Rattie
-Mark Scheifele-Matthew Puempel
-Rickard Rakell-Tobias Rieder
Assistant coach Brian Kilrea
ran the practice, and while the lines stayed intact from beginning to end, he rotated all six defenseman, so Ryan Murphy
, Scott Harrington
, Joe Morrow, Tyler Wotherspoon
, Duncan Siemens
and Myles Bell
all took shifts with each other.
And Christopher Gibson
and David Honzik
manned the nets. They'll each play about half the game tonight, but the starter is yet to be determined.
Team Orr should be taking the ice in a bit and we'll have their lines and pairings in a while.
Also, Team Cherry coach Don Cherry
held court after practice and was his usual self. Stay tuned to the blog for some of the highlights.
