BREAKING Babcock Makes Shocking Lineup Change.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have entered desperation territory, with Nazem Kadri suspended for the next two games and down 0-2 in their series head coach Mike Babock has switched things up. The Leafs had coach made a bit of a shocking change to his lineup as he bumped deadline acquisition Tomas Plekanec up to the third line. It's an interesting move because many Leafs fans were to the point of calling Plekanec to be scratched for Game 3. Plekanec was centering a line between Patrick Marleau and Mitch Marner, while Dominic Moore looks like he'll dress tonight and center the fourth line with Johnsson and Kapanen. Hyman finds himself back on the first line with Auston Matthews and William Nylander, two Leafs' stars who have yet to register a point. Do you think bumping Plekanec up to the second line is a good call or has Babcock already let the series slip through his fingers?Here's the projected forward lines:Hyman - Matthews - Nylander
Marleau - Plekanec - Marner
JVR - Bozak - Brown
Johnsson - Moore - Kapanen
