New-look lines for San Jose?

As noted earlier, in practice today, Terry Murray went back to a line-combination setup quite close to the one he used late in training camp (it got disrupted a bit because of Dustin Penner’s injury). Will those lines — with Penner moving up alongside Mike Richards and Dustin Brown — be used in tomorrow’s game against San Jose? Murray said maybe.

MURRAY: “I made the change out there for the practice today. Scotty Parse, I think, has played well on the left side with Richards. But the look that I wanted to see here was something that I put down on paper, going back through the summer time, and that’s Penner up as one of your top-six forwards. That’s where he has always had success, and that’s where I think the success is to be had with us. We haven’t seen the goals. We have not seen a lot of scoring chances. That’s probably the primary look that I’ve gone back through in the last few games. So we’ll see how that shakes out tomorrow. That’s my reasoning.’’
