You need to send the 4th lines in opportune moments. And that might very well means against the opponent's top lines when they have been bottled up or when they just have been called on an icing call.

It's supposed to be the sledgehammer that tenderize the opposition.
The Sedins were mostly on the ice against Marchand and Bergeron, along with a mix of Recchi, Krejci and Peverley. Here are the Boston wins:

Game 3
Game 4
Game 6
Game 7

In these games, Thornton's minutes vs DSedin range from 0.5 to 3.6.
