On whether he felt comfortable playing while he was in Ottawa: "Well, I'm just pretty sure it's like different role, and it's different set of things I have to do, because it's kind of hard to create something when you're playing five minutes per game. I'm not sure it's the thing that the fourth line is really looking for doing with five minutes per game. You know, obviously, it's pretty hard for me, because I'm not used to it. I just was trying to focus more on the defensive. I'm pretty happy with the way it went."

Well said. In my understanding too, 4-s line is for keeping own net clear and give others some time to rest. If i remember right, no goals was scored in Ottawa net when Nikita is on ice. So, i guess - mission accomplished. Creativity is for other lines.
