I know this is going to upset a lot of people, but Fedotenko - Boyle - Prust are the fourth line on any good team, and until we institute a third line with skill the Rangers are going to have trouble consistently finding offense with only 2 lines capable of doing that.
Yep, that is a reason why we struggle to score. Torts plays them like a third line. Our third line should be Anisimov and Zuc with Feds, and Avery or Rupp should be with Prust and Boyle as our 4th line.

Its amazing that we continue struggling to score goals, but an offensive player like Zuc still cant crack our top 9.
