Thursday's Daily Dosage - Emery, Spezza, Visnovsky

Rejoicing is cool, but man that's creepy.

Filling in for Cam today as he's DTD. We'll monitor his status on the Injury Updates piece for the next couple of days. Big shoes to fill here.

Rich Peverley with 1+1=2 last night and that gives him 2+7=9 over the last 9 games. He's at 21 points in 28 games on the season, good for a 62 point pace. Still don't think this guy is going to be a 60-point player when all is said and done, but he could be useful for stretches.

Daniel Alfredsson with 1+1=2 and he's got 3+6=9 with 28 SOG over his last 9 games. Seems like he's shooting the puck more. Remember last season he shot just 96 times in 54 games. He may be useful until he gets hurt again.

Jason Spezza with 1+1=2 and he's riding a four game point streak with 1+6=7. He's also at exactly a point per game with 32 in 32.

Not to be outdone by Tuukka, Tim Thomas turned away 47 of 49 shots to get the win for the Bruins. Dude is unreal.

Ray Emery fueled the goalie controversy fire last night getting the SOW against the Wild. He's finished the last 5 games for the Hawks and won the 4 of those 5 that he started. He made 27 saves on 30 shots and stopped both of the shootout attempts he saw. He's up to 19% owned in Yahoo! and I see that number climbing. It's not like he's never been a starter before.

I hadn't realize what a sick run Jonathan Toews is on. After his 1+1=2 last night, he has 8+7=15 over his last nine games. He's always been below a point per game player but with 34 points in 31 games, he's looking to change that trend.

Patrick Sharp chipped in a PPA to keep his points streak alive at seven. He's 6+4=10 with 23 SOG over that span.

No points and a minus-2 for Nick Leddy and this guy is slumping big time with just 0+2=2, 8 SOG, and a minus-4 over his last 10.

Lubomir Visnovsky returned from injury and led the Ducks with 24:23 TOI. He put up a PPA so let's hope there's more of the same in store.

Interesting stuff here as Niklas Hagman found himself on a line with Perry and Getzlaf at times and received 4:45 of PP TOI. He scored twice including one on the PP. This situation is worth monitoring as, really the only way he can be useful is with great linemates.

Mike Smith with the loss in Anaheim and he's only won 1 of the last 6 games while letting in 4 goals in four of those six games. He's falling back to earth but I don't think you have to worry about him losing time to Jason LaBarbera.

Another guy in a tailspin is Oliver Ekman-Larsson with 0 points in his last 10 games. I guess this won't be a breakout season for him.
