MacLean juggles his line for game against Kings

LOS ANGELES – MacLean made two lineup changes for the game against the Kings, putting Mark Borowiecki in on defence and taking out Matt Carkner, and putting Bobby Butler back in up front and taking out Andre Petersson.
Then MacLean shook up his lines.
Butler moved up to play with Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek.
Nick Foligno played with Kyle Turris and Daniel Alfredsson.
Colin Greening dropped down to play with Chris Neil and Zack Smith. And Erik Condra was on the fourth line with Kaspars Daugavins and Zenon Konopka.
“My thought was that we were trying to make our team better, or maybe give it a different look,” said MacLean.
“The Kings are a team that plays real well defensively. The (Anze) Kopitar line is a real good line and generates a lot of their offence.
“We want to make sure we have things in order that give us the best opportunity to win. And sometimes to do that you have to change some of the personnel.”
The biggest surprise was that Butler got promoted from the fourth line, where he has spent most of the season. He has just five goals and four assists.
“He’s got three game-winning goals for us,” said MacLean. “Every goal he scores is important. We’d still like to see him have more production as a player offensively, but he’s also worked hard on his defensive side of his game this year and done a really good job of that.”
