Tanguay's new shootout move.
Four point night for Alex Tanguay as he had 1+3=4, GWG, and 2 PPP. He has 2+7=9 over a five game point scoring streak. Going back further, over his last 18 games he has 6+17=23, good for ninth best over that span. Not bad for a guy who's owned in just 50% of Yahoo! leagues.
Also riding a five game point scoring streak is teammate Jarome Iginla. His three points last night (1+2=3) give him 5+4=9 and 7 PIM for good measure over that span.
Another goal for Blake Wheeler and he has a goal in four straight games.
Tobias Enstrom with a goal and an assist and he has 1+4=5 and plus-5 over his last four games.
Two straight games with a goal and an assist for Mark Giordano. Don't forget this guy next season. His current numbers prorated over a full season are 12+23=35. You'll likely get him at the end of your draft and he could be a steal putting up those types of numbers.
Three apples for Olli Jokinen and they all came on the powerplay. This dude just continues to look rejuvenated this season.
The line of the night goes to Henrik Zetterberg with 2+1=3, plus-1, 2 PIM, and 5 shots. He's really coming on strong with 5+7=12, plus-5 and 20 shots over his last six games.
Following suit was Zetterberg's linemate, Valtteri Filppula with 1+2=3. He, too, is hot over his last six games with 5+5=10.
Scoring goals used to be part of his thing, but after last night's game, Mike Richards has gone 23 games without a goal. Did going to Los Angeles kill his fantasy value?
Jonathan Quick took the loss with the ugly line of 4 goals allowed on 15 shots. It seems his late season troubles have returned as he is 3-3-1 with a 2.98 gaa and .881 sv% over his last 7 starts.
Two straight games with no points for Evgeni Malkin but that's just the third time he's gone consecutive games with nothing to show for it.
