Lining Up: Some of the best lines this season

The show must go one and we are here to help you through this trying time. To be honest when I heard about the NHL 'pause' I was selfishly upset for like 30 seconds because hockey is life. I then quickly realized that without life there would be no hockey and that made the picture a lot clearer. So here I am writing this week's 'Lining Up' to hopefully give you the reader a bit of a break from all things covid-19. This week's edition I will look over the top lines for the entire season. I have used Dobber’s line production tool to compile a list of the top lines at even strength for each team. I will say I was surprised to see a couple of lines near the top of the list despite their team being out of a playoff spot.
