David Legwand C OTT Jan 26 '78
Barry Trotz shuffled the Predators' lines in practice Monday, moving David Legwand onto the third line.
Legwand, the team's second-leading scorer during the regular season, was on the second line, but has been demoted to the checking-line role with Brandon Yip and Matt Halischuk. Legwand has six penalty minutes and only one assist in the series. Nick Spaling was elevated to pivot between Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn. "It's something we did today. Tomorrow is a new day, so we'll see," Legwand said. "I played with (Halischuk) a little bit during the season. He's a hard worker; he's going to get pucks to the net and around the net."
