#NYR practice lines: Nash-Stepan-Callahan (same), Clowe-Richards-Boyle, Hagelin-Brassard-Zuccarello, Pyatt-Powe-Asham (same).

John Tortorella told Gross after practice that he felt the lines were getting stale and wanted to try something new.
…i thought Torts jumbling the lines on every shift vs. Toronto was trying "something new."
…that Brassard line could be a winner. Lots of speed and creativity. The Richards line? Not so much.
Gross also reports that Marc Staal indicated there was nothing new to report on a possible timetable for his return.
