Despite being the highest scoring line, it's actually the second line. The first line of Koivu, Zednik and Bulis has 61 NHL playoff games and 41 pts between them. Not a lot, but they've been there. Their average age is only 27/28, so that's not too bad. Due to the pressure on the Koivu line, the other guys seem to enjoy just going out and doing their job... and get lots of points as a result. Dagenais may crap the bed, and Ribeiro might be streaky, but Ryder will undoubtedly perform every game. I'll be curious to see how they match up with Samsonov, Nylander, and Bergeron.
From a Habs fan, good luck B's!
