I do think the fourth line is playing better, and I'd contribute a lot of that to Bjork's play. He looks comfortable down there, and while you'd hope he'd be a consistent 2nd liner, if he gives the fourth line an offensive threat, I'll take it.

I'm glad Dubinsky is back and appreciate what he brings to the team, but I don't understand why Duclair (with his speed and scoring touch) is sitting instead of Sedlak.
Maybe because Sedlak can take face-offs and is more responsible defensively? Just a guess.
Maybe just years of disappointment bring me to this moment. Sam sounds so positive and upbeat...you know...a "keg half full" kind of guy. I am totally the Negative Nellie. Yes we have wins vs two good teams in Nashville and Washington but beating NJ is not all that impressive, we won really ugly vs the not-good Rangers, had to go to OT vs a not-good Panthers, gave up a late two goal lead vs the Preds and a very late lead vs the Caps.
I know its a good thing when you can still win while not playing good hockey but I would rather see them win while playing good hockey. I love how our first line is producing but we have struggled with our bottom three lines getting any consistency, the special teams is bad and the goalie situation is a mess. There is just so long these smoke and mirrors can last. The team must play better...the whole team!
Go CBJ...beat Habs tonight :)
This word you keep saying...I don't think it means what you think it means.
Given how bunched up the East standings are (TB excepting), this is a pretty big game. Go CBJ!
