    News: Nathan Gerbe added an assist - his sixth point of the season - during Tuesday's 6-4 win over Dallas.
    Analysis: After matching his career-high 31 points last year, Nathan Gerbe was promoted to the second line this season alongside Riley Nash and Chris Terry, but his output for the season to date has left a little to be desired.
