Matt Cooke however, can.

I'd put Kunitz back with Geno/Neal.
Move TK back to the 3rd.
Put Cooke on Sid's wing.
If that doesn't work, try TK or Bennett for a game.

After that, just pray this team gets out of the habit of offense first and break out as a 5 man unit. DB said they are working on it but it seems like a habit that is going to be hard for them to break.
I wouldn't have thought so, but he showed it tonight. I haven't seen as much sustained offensive zone pressure from Geno and Neal all season as I saw with Glass in the third. He seems to get instinctively not only what his role is but also what Geno and Neal need from him. Whether he can continue to show that and whether it translates into production from the line remains to be seen, but I expect to see Glass the whole game there on Tuesday.
