Agreed. For the 1st time all year it seems that Carter has found a line and they have some momentum. Niko's speed and hustle works great with Umberger and Carter. All have speed, good board work and are good off the rush. Carter has been a good finisher and shoots first usually but for the 1st time I can remember he seems to be setting up his linemates more and creating.

The teams health has allowed some lines to stay in tact for more than a couple games in a row and the team all around is playing much better as a result.
