The Canucks are coming off impressive back-to-back wins over the Capitals and Flames as they look ahead to their next 5 games on the road. Hopefully this marks the end of their early-season funk.
In both of the wins, coach Alain Vigneault basically kept his lines in tact. But he has been known to be a master line juggler as he’s quick to pull the trigger when things are not going well: either to get certain players going or to limit the ice time of others. And in hockey, things are certainly apt to change. What happens with a player gets injured? Or when a player returns from injury?
For this CCC, I explore the art of line juggling with help from my friend Gene Monterstelli.
