6 in 8 if you include yesterday, and yes precisely.
He got 3 of those points vs the blow out game in Boston. One was vs the Campbell-Thornton-Caron line with the Boychuk-Seidenberg pairing. One was on a regular PP, the other was on a 5-3 PP.
In Philly, he got one vs the Hartnell-Briere-Leino line with O'Donnell (worst Philly Dman) and Meszaros.
In Ottawa and Buffalo, he got one each game on the PP.
So, it's either on the PP or versus weaker opposition either on the defense or up front, or both.
And Gomez is better suited for our 2nd line, because he plays against top lines and doesn't produce / and gets scored on, so better to Keep DD on the 3rd line moving forward instead of evaluating it on game by game basis?
Don't see that logic.
DD's playing well with exception of step backwards last night. He's producing more, both on the PP and 5 on 5. He's doing what he needs to do to take that top 6 spot from Gomez... Really, it's a function of accepting change more than anything else IMO.
