Friday's Daily Dosage - Keith, Luongo, Cammalleri...

HEADS UP:  Lookie who's found their way into the top 50 (25th place) of the FHS Playoff Pool... genius move by that guy to go all in on the Sharks (9 of 21 boxes)... I'm coming for ya, Larry Fogg!

If there's one take-away from the Torres hit on Seabrook, it's don't make Duncan Keith mad as he has goals in three straight games and went off for 2+2=4 & eight shots last night.  We hadn't seen his Norris Trophy form too much this year but maybe he was just keeping it in reserves for the playoffs.

Some people thought I was crazy the other day for mentioning that once the dam was breached in last year's playoffs that Roberto Luongo never recovered, here's what I said:

... for those looking for him to bounceback, recall that he gave up 5+ goals in three of the final four games of last year's series against Chicago

Well he's now been pulled in back-to-back games after giving up four goals on 12 shots last night.

Mike Cammalleri with 1+2=3 last night and he has multi-pointers in three straight games and 5+8=13 over his last 10 games.  So while he disappointed this season, he looks like he's in the mood again come playoff time.

Michael Ryder with 2+1=3 last night including the winning goal in OT but he came in with just 1+4=5 in his previous 23 games coming in so I doubt he's on your playoff pool team.

Two quality assists last night for Logan Couture to give him 2+3=5 through four games and just when you think he couldn't possibly impress you any more, he's taking his game to another level.

Ryane Clowe with B2B two-goal games and he's having himself a good playoffs so far with 4+3=7 through four games.

Ian White with 2A last night and he has points in each of the three games he's participated in (5A in total).

So Antti Niemi did get the start last night after getting pulled in game #3 and he responded with a decent performance stopping 35 of 38 shots for the win (having the support of six goals certainly doesn't hurt).

Jonathan Quick was the victim on all six of those Sharks' goals, for the second game in a row... looks like another one of his late season collapses.  Wonder if we'll see Jonathan Bernier in game #5?... hell, the kid doesn't have a regulation loss in his last 11 games, so it's worth a shot if you ask me.

Brad Richardson has back-to-back games with a goal & five shots and at a time when LA needs someone to step up offensively, it's been him that has answered the bell.  Richardson put up good numbers in the OHL & AHL but has never really been given a prime opportunity to show that he can produce in the NHL.
