I don't want to excite you or anything, but the NHL's most prolific Twitter user might just be in the Phoenix Coyotes' lineup during Thursday's Game 3. Paul Bissonnette has been spotted during warmups at Staples Center, and while that's not necessarily out of the ordinary, he's joined the fourth line during line rushes, an indication that he just might be in the actual lineup.
Lines in warm-up: The new fourth line is Bissonnette, Chipchura and Pouliot.— Sarah McLellan (@azc_mclellan) May 18, 2012
Bissonnette hasn't played since the first round against the Chicago Blackhawks, seeing just 13 seconds of ice time in Game 4 before getting in a fight and earning an ejection for failing to tie down his fight strap. Marc-Antoine Pouliot is in Game 3 thanks to the suspension of Martin Hanzal, and Kyle Chipchura has played 12 games this postseason.
Coyotes coach Dave Tippett has put Biz in warmups in the past as a way to get the team excited for the game, only to pull him out of the lineup at the last possible moment. We won't know what the official word is until moments before puck drop. Chipchura has played 12 games this postseason for the Coyotes.
