07:04 PM ET 02.06 | There's nothing about Ryan Carter, Stephen Gionta, and Steve Bernier that jumps out as star hockey players. But, the New Jersey Devils' incredible fourth line has continued its magic from the postseason last year. Whenever the Devils are in need of an energized shift, those three players, who have jumped up to the third line this season, have been on the ice to make it happen. A punishing forecheck, shots on net, and a bruising style of hockey have been the keys to success and what this line has become known for. And now, they're adding an offensive prowess to their resume, too. Carter, Gionta and Bernier have combined for 12 points so far this season, after scoring 10 total goals in the 24-game playoff sprint last spring.

Maybe little brother Stephen needs to teach not-so-big brother Brian how to play the game!

I played hockey against Stever Bernier...good player, too bad he never really developped to the expected potential.

Brian already has "The Reimer" move perfected.

Watching Brain when he played for the devils, we always knew his shootout style, fake wrist shot, leg pump, to backhand and roof it. Goalies had to know it was coming, but he still scored it. Now if baby Gio can get this going, I see good things!
