Mike G. Morreale at NHL.com reports that the trio of Daniel Alfredsson, Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek may be skating together often tonight..."They bring a lot of experience and it's definitely a line that can generate offense on a consistent basis," Ottawa Head Coach Paul MacLean said."If we do that, we'll have to juggle things a little bit; we might do it within the game or before the game. I haven't decided yet."In Game 1, Spezza mostly centered Colin Greening and Michalek, while Alfredsson was alongside center Kyle Turris and left wing Nick Foligno. MacLean did put Alfredsson, Spezza and Michalek on the same line at certain points in the game in an attempt to ignite the attack....one loss and MacLean already going with panic moves. I love it....although, those three on a line together will be a tough chore for Girardi and McD who are likely to be matched up against them.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at ...
