When you are on the top PK line, your ice time increases. In order for his ice time to go down, he would have to go on the 4th line. A guy doesn't break a funk by not playing in situations where he can score.
HE WAS IN THE BOX TWICE!!!!!!!!!!!! thats time hes you know, sitting, not on the ice killing penalties which is what hes supposed to be good at. thats almost 4 minutes he isnt killing penalties tonight.
And yet he was still only 13 seconds behind the leading penalty killing forward. So thats even more of his time on ice in which he's not in a scoring position.
