Don’t read anything into Svechnikov skating on a full line from this because that’s the way the team has been practicing the entire time. Staal’s injury might force them back into the 12/6 setup or it may just means Cholowski is back in. I don’t know if Blashill wants to use both Cholowski and Djoos though. We’ll see today.
The other interesting part is that it has looked like Mantha has been playing below his linemates and Zadina has been playing above them. This line switch seems fair.

Hi friends. Some news.— Hemal Jhaveri (@hemjhaveri) March 26, 2021
I am no longer working at For The Win and USA TODAY. Here’s what happened. https://t.co/0EWw9PQmzq
Dan Dakich was allowed to use sexist language. Greg McDermott was allowed to say that players belong on "the plantation." Meyers Leonard was allowed to use an anti-Semitic slur. But Hemal Jhaveri—not a white man—was just relieved of her job for critiquing white supremacy. https://t.co/hGw3EGhQRJ— Nathan Kalman-Lamb (@nkalamb) March 26, 2021
