Dan Bylsma continues to grind it out, doing unsung chores for the Ducks.
Bylsma, a right wing, was moved to center on the team's fourth line Wednesday, a position he has not tried since 1997-98, when he was with the Kings. He was forced into the position because Marc Chouinard has an injured right knee.
"There is really not much difference, except I'll have to play a lot more down low on defense," Bylsma said. "That doesn't bother me. I just like playing."
Actually, Bylsma was a center in name only, as Coach Bryan Murray shortened his bench, using only three lines against the Boston Bruins. Murray used Bylsma, Kevin Sawyer and Denny Lambert in certain situations.
