    Let's have a little better showing than last time eh bois?

    Bishop in, Johns in, Polak probably in. Hopefully Jamie is ALL IN.

    IMO, Johns should not be one of the rotating scratches. He needs time and repetition to get back to "game speed" and, even in his current state, he's a better option in the bottom pair than Fedun and Polak.

    I don't think he really is its just that he's been out for so long they are careful with him. Before the trip they said Johns will only play 2 of the 3 games for pre-cautionary reason and thats what happened. They are just extra careful with him and sometimes that means he has to sit out a game here and there when there a many in a row.

    Agreed that it is about protecting the player. I genuinely thought yesterday was game day which was the only reason I was surprised it seemed like he might be a scratch based on the pairings. However, just like you said, lines really never matter much on non-game days. There's no real benefit to pushing Johns too far.

    Correction; Minnesota Wild... not Twins.

    Would be interesting though.

    I was gonna be mad at Bishop getting overused during the part of the season where he always gets injured, but it's another back-to-back, so it's gotta be done I guess.

    Sekera has also been quietly a good bottom 6-dman. He was 2nd on the team in +/- weeks ago and still is. I know he’s not playing against opposing top lines regularly but we’re not a scoring team either.

    The team should have bottled that memory of being humiliated last time we played.

    Hoping their pride kicks in and we annihilate them.

    Seguin to double dip on the scoreboard

    Well if the twins score a goal on us that would be depressing.

    I think being cautious with Johns is the best plan, much as I want to see him out there every game now. Especially as they still don't seem entirely sure why it was so bad for him, and what the triggers were for the headaches.

    I'm pretty excited to watch the Heiskanen-Johns pairing. I know they've played a bit together, but I'm really hoping that pans out as the pair moving into the playoffs. I'm really excited about how well Oleksiak has played, but I think Johns offers a better package all around.

    I knew that was going to be short lived after Boudreau almost blew a gasket on the bench.
