There are a bunch of early games again on this Saturday. Make sure you get your lineups done.
Brent Burns with the trio of assists last night including two on the PP and he added 4 shots. That's four straight games with a PPP for him where he has 0+8=8, 5 PPP and 6 PIM. He's got to be a candidate to have much better post all-star break stats mostly because he just can't do a lot worse.
Logan Couture kept his point streak going with 2 PPA. He has 5+7=12 and 6 PPP for the streak. Keep flying, Logan.
Patrick Sharp with two assists last night and he's riding a 4 game point streak with 2+4=6 and 18 shots during his streak. No PPP during the span, however, he does have a SHG.
Thomas Vanek returned to the lineup and promptly joined the 20-goal club with a PPG. Hopefully this means he's healthy and feeling good.
Another member of the 20-goal club is Michael Ryder as he also scored a PPG last night. He hasn't made it to 20 since the 2008-2009 season.
Christian Ehrhoff is trying his best to shake the suck off of him. He had an assist last night to give him 1+3=4 and a plus-5 over his last 5 games.
Ryan Miller took the SOW last night. He's won 5 of his last 6 and the one he lost was actually a shutout. He has a .962 save% and 1.11 gaa during that span.
Zero points and a minus-1 last night for Bobby Ryan. He has just one goal and no assists over his last 7 games. I guess you can't quite drop him, but man is he a scrub.
David Jones with 2 apples last night and he's on a 3 game point streak with 3+3=6 and a plus-3.
Paul Stastny had 1+1=2 and he's also on a 3 game point streak with 1+4=5.
Eric Staal put up 1+1=2 and a plus-2 (!) in last night's game. He's 3+1=4 and a plus-5 over his last 4 games. That's something.
