Game #29 – Hawks vs. Devils: Lineups & How They Were Built

Hawks

Notes: Maatta missed last night with the flu but an extra day’s rest might have him back in the lineup tonight. Which is good, because we don’t need to see Dennis Gilbert ever again…Crawford will rotate back in…Kubalik, Wedin, and Dach were among the best Hawks forwards in terms of possession, but also saw the least amount of time…Strome is on a 65-point pace, did you know that?

Devils

Notes: It’s hard to know what the Devils will look like tonight as it will be their first game under interim coach Alain Nassredine. So this is our best guess…Jack Hughes has missed the past couple but will return tonight. One big complaint about former coach John Hynes was his deploying Hughes down the lineup, so you might see him in the top six tonight…Hall hasn’t scored in his last five and has two goals since Nov.1, shooting 4.1% on the season…Palmieri has 14 points in 18 career games against the Hawks…
