Hell, they've been scored on TWICE in the last 13 games while averaging about 10 mins a night(But yes, they only scored THREE themselves)..Still, that's pretty damn good and a good contribution for a line going up against top lines a third to a half of the time. The other lines were't doing the job offensively

That being said, I agree, only specific times during games and only against certain opponents should they be used in that fashion. Maybe not at all if another line takes over the mantle--which would be fine with me. That would be the best becasue it means our talented players have bought into the defense---which they need to do.
I think the PDD line is fantastic and it will work out our offensive woes for this season, as demonstrated by last night's game.
