Lineup changes and young guys sit

Tonight’s lineup VS Atlanta Thrashers has an interesting mix…

Tanguay – Plekanec – Kostopoulos
A. Kostitsyn – Koivu – D’Agostini
Higgins – Lang – Kovalev
Begin – Lapiere – Laraque
I think if Kostopoulos can grab some loose pucks with his hustle in the offensive zone his line mates tonight may get on the score chart (not the only reason they might of course)…
AK-Koivu-D’Agostini line should be neat… I think D’Agostini played well last game and if Andrei Kostitsyn plays like he can this line could fly.
Higgins-Lang-Kovalev…. lookin’ for that chemistry they had years back, Lang and Kovalev will be lookin’ for the old magic.. I expect Higgins to play hard….
The 4th line… these guys should be pretty good at getting in Atlanta’s face… Lapierre can be a pest… and he’s quick on his skates… Begin the human missle and always out to hustle and George…. who wants to mess with him anyway???
I’d like to see George Laraque put in front of the net…. maybe on a couple of power plays… I personally think that has potential.
Tonight, for probably one of the first times in his short career, Sergei Kostitsyn is a healthy scratch…. and it seems like his coach believe’s he needs to check his attitude.
I’ve liked Sergei from the moment I saw him play…. but I must admit, last game I was not impressed… and appparently Carbo thought it carried over in practice.
Latendress is the other to sit out. Not sure exactly why he is sitting.
Looking for some hard work tonight.
Go Habs!
