Sunday's Daily Dosage - Brown, Karlsson, Downie...

Maybe Kings fans wanted Brown to have their hats as a parting gift?

With trade rumours swirling I'd say there was a burr in Dustin Brown's saddle as he had 3+1=4, two PPG, SHG, plus-2, two PIMs, three hits & four shots. Not bad for one night, hell not bad for an entire week. Coming in Brown had one goal in his last 13 games.

This is getting boring... a measly 1+2=3 last night for Erik Karlsson, not that exciting as he already had one of those last game and a 4-pointer the game before that. I smell a 1st star of the week award. He has 6+9=15 & plus-8 during a six game point streak.

Three's were wild last night as Ryan O`Reilly had three A, plus-3 & three shots... that gives him 8A & plus-8 over his last five games. I'm very impressed that this guy has kept up his production this year after back-to-back 26 point seasons to start his career.

Outstanding night for Steve Downie with his new club as he had 1+2=3, GWG, plus-3 & six shots. The Downie, O'Reilly & Gabriel Landeskog line is looking very potent as Landeskog also had a pair of goals last night and is 5+3=8, plus-7 with 26 shots during a five game point streak.

Another year, another team for Wojtek Wolski as the Rangers shipped him off to FLA for scraps. He came up big with a late 3rd period goal to tie the game for his new team last night... he tends to make a strong impression with a new team and then fizzles over time.

Four shots but no points in 17 minutes for Jeff Carter in his LA debut... he played on a line with Mike Richards.

Back-to-back wins on back-to-back nights for Michal Neuvirth as he stopped a combined 58 of 61 in wins over Montreal & Toronto.

Second time this week that Antti Niemi didn't make it out of the 1st period as he gave up three goals on seven shots against Nashville last night. He is now 2-5-1, 3.87 & .868 over his last nine appearances.

Pair of goals for Blake Wheeler yesterday and he now has 3+10=13 during a six game point streak.

Ray Whitney has at least a point in 13 of his last 14 games (4+14=18 & plus-13).

Maybe Evgeni Malkin was a little miffed that his coach said Stamkos was a better sniper than him as Geno lit up Tampa yesterday with 3+1=4, plus-3, four PIMs & five shots. He is now four points up on Stamkos is the scoring race and is on pace for his first 50 goal season.

Alex Auld isn't off to a flying start as the Sens temporary #1 goalie as he gave up four goals on 37 shots in a loss to Boston. Sadly, his .883 sv% actually improved due to this performance.

Another strong outing for Justin Peters as he was starting his fourth in the last five for Carolina and was on his way to a shutout before a late game collapse & SOL. He finished with 42 saves on 44 shots and is now 2-1-2, 1.56 & .952 over his last five games. I'm still not recommending him but I'm stubborn like that (see: Al Montoya).

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse... c'mon it's not like any of you still own Dwayne Roloson, actually I do, but maybe I should rethink this after last night as he gave up eight goals on 34 shots to Pittsburgh.

Grant Clitsome & Brian Rolston are on a long list of players on waivers right now as teams clear space for possible deadline additions.

Matt Frattin was called up by the Leafs yesterday and played 16 minutes last night. Mike Murphy, David Rundblad, Anton Lander, David Savard & Matt Hackett were all sent to the AHL.
