‘“In this whole league, it’s groups of two that play well together. Whether it’s (Tim) Connolly-(Jason) Pominville, Pominville-(Jochen) Hecht, Roy-Vanek,” Ruff said Monday after practice. “Roy and Vanek have been together for long periods. When you take them away, it works for a little while. Sometimes, it spurs a little energy into your team. Usually, when you put them back together, that’s when you get your gift. It’s like, ‘OK, we get to play again together and let’s do the best with this.’”’
