News: Nieto bagged a pair of assists in Sunday's Game 1 win over the Kings. Impact: The rookie winger has played well in the opening games of round one, accumulating three assists and a plus-3 rating. After opening Game 2 in a two-goal deficit, coach Todd McLellan refocused the lineup on scoring depth, moving Joe Pavelski back to third-line center. If the depth chart stays that way, Nieto could be a beneficiary, as the top three lines would be full of offensive potential and tough for the Kings to manage.(RotoWire, )
