The Nashville Predators and Minnesota Wild conceded five goals against the Nevada team, while the Anaheim Ducks conceded seven goals. In each of these wins, no player managed a double.

“It’s pretty awesome,” Roy said Thursday, hours before a game against the San Jose Sharks. We know we have a lot of depth up front and also defensively so it’s good to see a lot of different players scoring.”

Obviously this contribution from everyone is made possible by Bruce Cassidy’s manpower management rolling the lines on the ice almost evenly. On Sunday, for example, Michael Amadio was the least used striker with 10:30, while Christopher Stephenson spent a strong 17:44 on the field with 17:44.

The trend can also be seen in defense with a deployment area between 6:30 p.m. and 10:58 p.m.

“If you look at the lines and I think everyone plays about the same amount of time. Bruce is safe in all combinations and they can all score and be successful offensively,” Roy said. It’s a big part of our group so hopefully we can continue like this.”

Of course, some players will play more than others on any given night, but Cassidy’s system allows for healthy competition that has paid off so far. In fact, the Knights lead the Pacific Division.

“Of course we want to push each other. Every night a line stands out and we play well.

Roy has 10 goals and 23 points in 51 games so far this season.
