Although the Canadiens have often used Tomas Plekanec and David Desharnais interchangably on their top two lines, Brendan Gallagher and Max Paciorrety have consistently skated together until recently.
The Habs split Gallagher and Pacioretty up recently and now ice the following units: Pacioretty, Desharnais and P.A. Parenteau as the top line with Plekanec between Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk on the second unit. It seems to be working so adjust your lineup accordingly. Mar 28 - 11:19 AM
