SUNRISE, Fla.Eric Fehr was a healthy scratch Thursday at BB&T Center. The message was pretty clear.

Mike Sullivan wants more from his team's bottom six. His Penguins won the Stanley Cup this past summer largely because their exceptional depth eventually was too much for the opposition to handle. Having four lines that can score is such a cliche, but in this team's case, it was true.

And it was again on this night, as the fourth line of Scott Wilson, Matt Cullen and Tom Kuhnhackl scored twice and dominated play, pacing the Penguins to a 5-1 victory over the struggling Panthers.
