Mika Zibanejad has one goal and four assists in his first six games.

That's not a bad start to the season, especially when you consider he didn't have a point in his first eight contests last year, but he wants to contribute more and feels his line can be better. "We're three big bodies that can skate and hold on to the puck," he said referring to linemates Bobby Ryan and Milan Michalek. "We've got to get some (offensive) zone time. We've been chasing too much."
