We finally found out on which line and with whom he'll be playing.
Sullivan is a skilled goal scorer, and with Devils are having trouble scoring goals, so it's no surprise to see him on New Jersey's top line with Patrik Elias and Andrei Loktionov. Elias and Sullivan played together in the AHL, and we'll see if the two of them can find some magic they had there.
The move reunites the CBGB line, as Steve Bernier moves back with Ryan Carter and Stephen Gionta on the fourth line. It also takes some of the pressure off Alexei Ponikarovsky-- who is no skilled scorer-- and Matt D'Agostini, who seems to be pressing. That third line can score goals but may not have to.
Two slumping players, David Clarkson and Travis Zajac, can work themselves out with Dainius Zubrus, who is still trying to regain his form after missing nearly two months with an injury.
All in all, this lineup is the best New Jersey can do without injured-forward Ilya Kovalchuk. These lines will need to jell quickly because Pete DeBoer can't be patient with struggling lines if they're not scoring goals with only 10 games to play after tonight
