Well, it took until the sixth game, but it appears that Bruce Boudreau has switched Alexander Semin and Mike Knuble — at least to start the game. Semin is in the starting lineup with Brendan Morrison and Brooks Laich, which means Knuble will be with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.
This could be a one-shift deal, or it could last the whole game. It will be interesting to see how it works out. It seemed like coming out of training camp that Boudreau would flop the two much more than he has to this point.
