Wednesday's Daily Dosage - Gaborik, Stepan, Malkin


Making his way back into the fantasy elite is Marian Gaborik with 2+1=3, and a plus-3. Gaborik is now just one behind the league leader for goals, Steven Stamkos. He's an every other season type of player and 2011-2012 is helping to prove that theory.

Scoffing at the thought of a sophomore slump is Derek Stepan putting up three assists and a plus-3. After a slow start (1 point in 8 games) he's been at a point per game with 23 in 23. Love the consistency.

Alexander Semin scored and he's got a goal in consecutive games for the first time this season. Yeah, it's been that bad for him, but maybe he can string something together here.

Michal Neuvirth started his third consecutive game and made it look easy stopping 20 of 21 Predators shots for the win. He's looking to take the starting job and run.

Nicklas Backstrom with a goal and an assist and it's amazing that even with Alex Ovechkin slumping, this guy is finding a way to put up points. He's got 34 in 32 games.

Evgeni Malkin gets a trio of assists to go with a plus-1. He's at 6+9=15 over a ridiculous six game point streak. His 39 points puts him in a 4-way tie (Kessel, Giroux, H. Sedin) for the league lead.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 36 saves and got the win over Ray Emery and the Blackhawks. So Emery can be beat...I knew it!

Nice line for Viktor Stalberg with 1+1=2, plus-2 and 9 SOG. I'm not going to fully endorse him as he doesn't contribute at all on the PP, but he's worth a roster spot for you deep leaguers.

Ray Whitney with a goal and assist last night both on the PP. He has 3+6=9 over his last nine games.

Radim Vrbata also put up a PPG and PPA and raise your hand if you thought this guy was going to be playing at a 70 point pace.

Erik Karlsson is running away with the defenceman scoring race. His 1+1=2 gives him 31 points on this young season.

Kyle Turris with an assist in his Senators debut. He played 16:10 but just 58 seconds on the PP. I'd feel better about him if his linemates were better than Erik Condra and Nick Foligno.

Evgeni Nabokov with the SOW last night after relieving Al Montoya. Freight train, Evander Kane, ran over Montoya late in the 2nd and he could not continue. Nabokov stopped all 19 shots he saw and both shootout attempts.

Olli Jokinen kept his point streak alive at four with an assist to give him 3+4=7 over that span.

Marek Zidlicky has been a pretty steady point producer over his career but he can't get it together this season. Six straight games with no points and only six points on the season. It can only get better than this, I would assume.
