I was looking at that line-up this morning and thinking about scoring. For this team to be successful, it needs a top six that can be capable of 20 goals each. Right now there's 3, McDavid, Nuge, and Draisaitl. So three of Lucic, Rattie, Yamamoto, and Puljujarvi need to prove they belong in the top six. Three of those, Rattie, Yamamoto, and Puljujarvi have never done it. Lucic does have a good history of being a top 6 player. My guess is Yam and Luc will make it.

Leia and I are outside the arena now, waiting to get in. An hour before game time, and the gates haven’t opened yet?

Met Jack Michaels, saw Patrick Elias. That’s it for now...

Nice. Enjoy the clash of titans, McDavid vs Hall.

Could you imagine these two on the same line, OR even just on the same team driving separate lines? What a sight, that would be.

MUST WIN!

Leon and Toby experienced playing in their homeland earlier in the week for, really a meaningless game, and now it's Lars and Oscar's turn in a real game. Looking at Larsson to get off to a great start. Should be an entertaining game.

Key Points
- Powerplay. Will 5 lefties work?
- Secondary Scoring. Do Yams or JP take advantage of the opportunity in front of them? (Oh no, I'm starting to sound like The Todd)
- Will the real Milan Lucic, please, stand up.

Wait back while Bouchard takes a skate alone. Don't think Bouchard realised it until he skated back hehe.
