The Kid Line is getting all the headlines, but the Lid Line of Ryan Jones, Ryan Smyth and Shawn Horcoff — two guys with classic hockey hair and one who gained a little attention for his cap number — has been every bit as important to Edmonton's mind-bending start this season.

In the last eight games (six of them wins, one of them an OTL), the trio has not only shut down the likes of Alex Ovechkin and the Sedin Brothers, but still found time to combine for eight goals and 20 points.

"Just good, old fashioned hard work," said Horcoff, who's also won 54% of his 220 faceoffs and ranks 10th in the NHL in total ice time among forwards. "We all feel pretty comfortable with each other. We're skating well and we're getting in on the forecheck, trying to create some battles, we're getting pucks to the net, crashing there and getting rewarded."
