Pierre-Marc Bouchard will remain on the fourth line Monday despite playing a lot better on Saturday.
Bouchard missed the last half of the season in 2011-12 with a concussion but will not use that as an excuse as he has only one goal and no assists in his past 10 games. "There has to be some understanding on both sides that it might take him a little while to get his game," coach Mike Yeo said, adding that sitting out during the lockout did not help. "But at the same time, at this time of year, we're forced to put the best lineup on the ice, one that gives us the best chance to win." Stay tuned as Bouchard has the offensive game to turn things around.
