10:12 AM ET 10.13 | Michal Handzus wanted to be more than a stopgap at second-line center and knew his play would dictate how long he stayed there. Unfortunately for him, he was right. Handzus was dropped to the fourth line Friday against the New York Islanders and scored the game-winning goal from that spot. He was a healthy scratch Saturday against the Buffalo Sabres, getting some rest in the second game of a back-to-back set. He'll have to show he can keep up with Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa if he wants to climb his way back up the depth chart.

Rest? Is that what they call getting your butt stapled to the bench these days?

Oh the pressures of keeping up with the AVs.
