Coming off a 1-2-0 western swing and a four-game stretch in which his forwards have only managed five even-strength goals (and none from his captain), Barry Trotz has mixed up his forwards at practice today, per reports out of Kettler. Here's how the lines shook out at this morning's practice:
Andre Burakovsky - Joel Ward-
Jason Chimera - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Eric Fehr / Jay Beagle
Liam O'Brien - Michael Latta - Tom Wilson
The blueline remained the same.
As Trotz put it...
