Update , this story was writen prior to Huskies 5-4 ot win over N.Y. Empire                                                                           Huskies shake up line up and bench. For five games starting last night ,GM D.R. Morrison will run the bench and coach Daryl Sutter will take an eagle eye view from upstairs. The change took everyone buy surprise and the Huskies responded with a big 4-3 OT win over the Brandon WheatKings , in Brandon.  The Huskies played a very up tempo game , with the big line of Nazem Kadri  1st star , Martin St. Louis 2nd star and Jordan Staal  3rd star leading the way . Devan Dubnyk took the win in net and Brendan Gallagher scored in a shoot out. James Neal returned to the lineup and played on the second line with Frans Nielsen and Ted Purcell .  Youngster Tyson Barrie played in his first game of the year and played 18:16 minutes.      The five game trial will continue the next game with New York Empire in Whitehorse .  " The team needed something , so we chose to try this before a trade. First time in 16 years I have worked the bench for the Huskies .  My aim is to play a more up tempo , modern fore-check game . This will be a more exciting game for our fans and taking less penalties is a goal . We need to get James Neal  playing full speed , that will make coaching easier. " laughed GM DR Morrison .  Coach Sutter also is suffering from the flu , so it is a good idea to make this move.   Dog tracks : Nazem Kadri has sneeked up on rookie of the year consideration. Now sitting at number five . with 8 goals and 8 assists for 16 points . He is still trailing Jonathan Huberdeau  of Havana Revolution    , wno has 27 points in first place rookie scoring. Next front runner is Nail Yakupov , the speedy winger from the Montreal Millionaires  has 23.
