Knuble Skating With The Best

from the Courier-Post,
Mike Knuble is the first to admit his career was stuck in the mud before he caught lightning in a bottle as a member of the Boston Bruins. A checking-line right wing who bounced from the Red Wings to the Rangers to the Bruins, Knuble was averaging 10 goals a season in Boston when an injury to Sergei Samsonov forced then-coach Robbie Ftorek to use him on the Bruins' top line alongside Joe Thornton and Glen Murray. Three years later, Knuble is patrolling another top line with Peter Forsberg and Simon Gagne and has the Bruins to thank for the opportunity. Tonight, his past and his present will collide when the Bruins visit the Flyers at the Wachovia Center.
