Head coach John Tortorella made all sorts of changes to the bottom three offensive lines in the late parts of Friday's contest against the Carolina Hurricanes in attempt to get his secondary scorers going. A four-game explosion was the result, therefore the coach ran new lines today in practice, which were actually what he finished the game with against the Canes.

Here are the lines, courtesy of Andrew Gross:

Artem Anisimov - Derek Stepan - Marian Gaborik
Ruslan Fedotenko - Brad Richards - Sean Avery
Brandon Dubinsky - Brian Boyle - Ryan Callahan
Andre Deveaux - Erik Christensen - Brandon Prust

In this morning's article, I discussed how Sean Avery is ready to take the next step and is no longer just trying to get himself comfortable with the squad. Recognizing this, Tortorella has put Avery on a line with Brad Richards and Ruslan Fedotenko to maybe provide a spark. That's a big opportunity for Sean against a rival opponent.

Not sure why Richards was taken away from the Dubinsky-Callahan line, but I don't mind Boyle there either. That's a hard-working line that should be expected to grind against the Isles tomorrow night.

As I said on Friday, the players beyond Marian Gaborik, Derek Stepan and Artem Anisimov actually contributed in that game with these lines. Hopefully we see a similar explosion Tuesday on the Island.
