Taylor Hall, on his way to making his triumphant return to the Edmonton Oiler lineup.
Ton of games to run through today so I'm sure I'm going to miss
a lot a few things. Leave a comment with anything noteworthy that's absent.
Taylor Hall returned in style yesterday with 2 PPG in 16:17 of ice time. It looks safe to deploy him as you normally would.
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins with a PPA yesterday and he's really sizzling with 6+13=19 and 9 PPP over his last 13 games.
Hopefully you haven't given up on Paul Stastny just yet as he put up 2+1=3 on 4 shots. His owners really needed that as he'd been slumping and getting a bit unlucky as of late.
Logan Couture with a nice stat line last night: 1+1=2, plus-3, and 4 shots.
Michal Neuvirth pitches the shutout and given how bad Tomas Vokoun has been, Neuvy has a real good shot at getting a lot of upcoming starts if he can build on this. I just traded Christian Ehrhoff to our very own Diomedes7 for Neuvy in Dio's keeper league. So this shutout makes me especially happy.
Alex Ovechkin scored the lone goal of the Capitals-Jets game and that puts him at 10 goals in 30 games on the season. I looked back to see how quickly he reached 10 goals in previous years: 10-11 in 18 games, 09-10 in 11 games, 08-09 in 20 games, and 07-08 in 16 games. So we're obviously talking about a different player this season.
Alexandre Burrows with the stat line of the night: 1+1=2, 6 PIM, 3 SOG, plus-1. He was recently dropped in a 1-year league that I'm in and I'm still trying to figure out why.
Shea Weber with 2 goals including one on the PP and he has 4+3=7, 4 PPP, 6 PIM, and 24 SOG over his last 7 games. Wish I owned him somewhere.
Two more assists for Pavel Datsyuk and doesn't it seem like he has 2 assists every night? He's at 1+7=8 over his four game point scoring streak. He even freight-trained Shea Weber while holding the puck last night. No seriously, he did.
Another game, another win for Brian Elliott. He turned away 25 of 26 Ranger shots to make it 3 straight wins. He's won an unreal 13 of 15 games he started this season. How can they ever give Halak another start? Unreal.
Michael Del Zotto notched a goal and he has 1+8=9, plus-7, and 3 PPP over his last 10 games. Make the pickup people.
Matt Carle with 3 assists last night. He's on a four game point streak where he has 1+6=7. Never been a fan of this guy as he's never delivered much on the PP but use him if you need him.
Tomas Kaberle with another assist and he's got 5 straight games with an assist (8 in that span). I'd say he's digging Montreal.
Steven Stamkos scored the game winner in OT 30 seconds in to give him 1+1=2 for the night. He's another hot player with 8+8=16 in his last 12 games.
Olli Jokinen put forth 1+1=2 and even though I consider him a bad hockey player, he somehow has 4+5=9 over his last 7 games so he's obviously proving me wrong.
The streak is at 16 games with no points for Sheldon Souray. The thing that's hard to figure is that he has 57 shots in that span. One would have to think that his luck is going to change but I wasn't waiting for it as I dropped him for Tomas Kaberle in one of my leagues.
Richard Bachman made it 3 straight wins to start his career.
