Jarret Stoll on his new linemates and their effectiveness

Center Jarret Stoll has been matched with just about every forward on the roster so far this season, except Anze Kopitar. He’s seen duty at center, wing, on the second and third lines, and everywhere in between.

Lately though, he’s had consistent linemates in Dustin Penner and Justin Williams. Here’s what he had to say about things when asked about the line coach Darryl Sutter has kept together since taking over five games ago…

“It’s been good. I think we have some chemistry going. Very few times we’re in our own zone playing d-zone coverage. And that’s what you want, you want to play the game in the offensive zone and try to create scoring chances and be buzzing, be hitting, getting loose pucks. I think we’ve been doing a good job at that. We just have to bare down a little bit more around the net and maybe get more shots. You can cycle all you want or try to control the puck down there all you want. But, if you don’t get shots, it’s really for not. That’s probably what we have to be better at.”

As for the match-up with Vancouver tonight – in 14 career games vs the Canucks, Williams has four goals…nine goals in 39 games for Stoll…and six goals in 32 games from Penner.
