DETROIT -- Pat Quinn has seen enough. Or, rather, hasn't seen enough. So he's breaking up the first line.

Dustin Penner, Andrew Cogliano and Gilbert Brule were invisible in St. Louis, failing to register a shot on net the entire game -- even though Penner and Brule got nearly five minutes of power play time each.

So Quinn moved Mike Comrie up with Penner and Cogliano and busted Brule down to the fourth line with Zack Stortini and Marc Pouliot.

"I know Cogs didn't get on the power play, but the other two did, and in 60 minutes of hockey they had zero shots on net, including power play time," said Quinn.

"They had just two attempts at the oppostion net. If you've got a line that's supposed to be your best offensive unit and you only throw the puck at their net twice in 60 minutes of hockey you better check yourself out a little bit.

"That's one of the reasons I changed it this morning, I was tired of looking at it, really."
