from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province,
No sooner did Henrik Sedin line up at practice Wednesday with Ryan Kesler and Chris Higgins — the trio ignited the third-period comeback win in Philadelphia — then Tortorella stopped the media short of coming up with a nickname for the new line. Even though the Sedins have embraced the changes.
“I think they [Sedins] want it,” said Tortorella. “They’re smart enough to know they were being checked pretty closely, and I wasn’t going to take them off because the opposing team was putting its checking line out there. They got to find a way to get through it.
“I’m not sure what the lines are going to be.”
Jordan Schroeder centred Daniel Sedin and Zack Kassian at practice Wednesday while Brad Richardson was between Tom Sestito and Dale Weise.
“We’re excited about this, and it’s a good thing as a team and for us personally,” said Daniel of being split from Henrik.
“It’s been like that for a lot of years and now we can spread things out. It gives us a spark that we need and it’s going to happen more.”
