Thursday's Daily Dosage - Miller, Lundqvist, Benn...

Allowing zero goals on a combined 63 shots, Ryan Miller and Henrik Lundqvist hosted the proverbial clinic last night in Buffalo, with Lundqvist getting the 1 - 0 shootout win. Miller might actually be turning a corner now, as he was a skills competition away from his third consecutive win here.

In just his second start of 2012, James Reimer managed to do the impossible: stop Evgeni Malkin! Unfortunately for his owners, Geno is now in a massive slump with no points in his last game. Reimer takes home the shutout, but don't expect me to ever refer to him as 'Optimus Reim". Except I guess I just did. Damn.

After a long dry spell, Tomas Fleischmann has three points in his last two games, including two apples against the Caps last night, Hopefully you didn't cut bait or sell low on Flash while he was slumping. 35 points in 39 games to start the season was no fluke.

Dustin Penner scored his second goal in 22 games. Let his name never be mentioned again in anything related to fantasy hockey. Except sucking.

Jamie Benn returned from injury with a vengeance, posting 1+2=3 and plus-3 vs. the Ducks. No coincidence that linemate Michael Ryder snapped a ten game pointless skid with an identical 1+2=3 bottom line.

Sheldon Souray finally found the back of the net with his first goal in 29 games, despite firing 89 shots in that span. Something absolutely had to give.

With two goals last night, Mikael Samuelsson now has three in his last two games, so he should be good until March or April.

Justin Williams scored a PPG and extended his point streak to nine games (4+7=11) with six PIM in that span too. That's more like it.

With two helpers last night, Alex Goligoski is on a bit of a tear with 3+5=8 in his last nine games. Looks like the money agrees with him.

Drew Doughty (1G 1A) is (finally) back on track with nine points in his last 11. He scored with one second left to give Jonathan Quick his 22nd win of the season.
