Coach Patrick Roy likes his fourth line, which consists of John Mitchell, Jack Skille and Cody McLeod.
"I have a lot of confidence in these guys, I'm telling you," said Roy. "Mitchy is playing really well with Cody and Jack." Mitchell has scored in each of Colorado's first two games, while Skille and McLeod have contributed one assist apiece. The trio plays against the other team's top lines and Mitchell sees time on the power play as well. Oct 12 - 1:51 PM
