With a long break facing the Montréal Canadiens as they await their 2nd round opponent, Michel Therrien finds himself in a conundrum.
What to do with his lineup.
As the Habs wait to see who they face, players nursing minor and major injuries have extra time to heal and get ready. What does that mean for the lineup?
There’s been no update on the condition of Alex Galchenyuk; all we’ve been told is he was unavailable for Round 1. Should he be ready to go in Round 2 bears the question of whether Therrien re-inserts him or just plainly leaves things alone.
Travis Moen will be available for the second round but the fourth line has been doing their job, and well.
The Canadiens will face the winner of the Detroit/Boston series. The Bruins are a tough, strong team which could incline Therrien to use some enforcement type players like George Parros.
Despite sweeping the Lightning, the head coach has a lot of decisions to make, but at least he’ll have some time to think about them.
We all wait on the edge of our seats to see his decision.
