What a run for David Clarkson as he scored the only goal of the game last night (PPG) on six shots to extend his point streak to five games where he's recorded 5+3=8. That's 21 goals for him now (ranks top 20 in the league) after averaging 12 over the past four seasons. Fantastic multi-cat seasons from the tough-guy.
Minny dman Nate Prosser with his first NHL goal and fight last night (along with four blocks). He's been seeing a decent amount of minutes in all situations lately, so keep an eye on him.
Your nightly shutouts went to Tomas Vokoun (42 saves), Evgeni Nabokov (45), Martin Brodeur (30) and Ilya Bryzgalov (18) although Bryz actually took the SOL. Since 24/7 ended, he is much better at 5-3-3, 2.29 & .921 in 12 games.
Owen Nolan hung 'em up for good yesterday and as we do at FHS when a star retires lets shine a light on his greatest fantasy season... for that we take you all the way back to the 1999/00 season where OwNo had 44+40=84, 110 PIMs & 261 shots for San Jose. Even though I never really liked the guy, I wouldn't kick someone with those numbers off my fantasy team.
A goal, plus-2 & five shots for Mike Fisher to give him 8+1=9 over his last eight games.
Since November Anze Kopitar only has two multi-point games so he hasn't been flashy about it but he has still managed to put up 6+5=11 over his last 12 games. His wingman, Justin Williams, has points in 11 of 12 (4+9=13).
Ryan Kesler has points in six straight (5+1=6 & 23 shots) as he tries to recover from a disappointing start to get back to the 70 point level that he's topped the past two seasons.
Peter Mueller returned after sitting out a game due to the flu and he found the back of the net to give himself 5+1=6 over his last seven games.
Four-year extension for Frans Nielsen... don't do the same in a fantasy league.
