Drive to the Net: Third line ‘hard to play against’

CRANBERRY, Pa. -- Wednesday was the first training camp practice in which all players who are expected to make the NHL roster practiced together.

The trio stood out during the scrimmages in the early days of training camp for the speed and offensive pressure they were able to create.
