Re-watching the game, I want to say:

I was critical of moving Neal to Sutter's line for two reasons. 1) I WANT SID TO HAVE SHINY TOYS, DUH! 2) Neal has been horrible at ES hockey this year, so making him the third wheel on the Sid line seemed like the best way to take advantage of his tools (his shot).

If he's going to play like he did last night: physical, driving to the net, creating space in the center of the ice, etc... the Pens can roll 2 scoring lines, with or without Geno. (Much better with Geno, obviously)

In fact, if Neal had played the first month like he played last night, I'm guessing no one would have had issues with the "3rd wheel" on that line, because they would have been producing at a much higher clip.
