The Jeff Carter Line: Speed, Transition & Why Sullivan Should Love It | PHN+



Pittsburgh Penguins Jeff Carter, Kasperi Kapanen, Jared McCann

The last few Pittsburgh Penguins games have not been heavy with offensive highlights (read that as in offense, not offensive, but there were certainly some highlights Penguins fans were offended by on Tuesday). The Penguins line, which has filled the stat sheet and brought fans out of their seats, is anchored by Jeff Carter in the middle.

And to think, PHN expected him to hold down the RW beside a grinding center. What was LA thinking? Mea Culpa on that one, both LA and PHN.

The Carter line has been remarkable since Carter found his footing within the Penguins system.

For the most part, the line has been Jared McCann on the left, Jason Zucker on the right. Though sometimes the lefties McCann and Zucker flip based on circumstance. And Kasperi Kapanen may join the band, too.

We hit the film room to show you just how good the Carter line has been and why head coach Mike Sullivan should love it.
