Evander Kane's 4 point night was the first of his career.
Evander Kane gave you 2+2=4, plus-4 and 9 shots last night to extend his point streak to 8 games. He has a blistering 7+7=14, plus-8, 10 PIM, 3 PPP, and 44 (!) shots for the streak.
A goal and an assist for Blake Wheeler and find me someone hotter than this guy over his last 10 games. Wheeler has been stuffing the stat sheet with 4+13=17, plus-6, 8 PIM, 3PPP, and 36 shots over that span.
Matt Read had been running pretty cold coming into last night's game. He had just four points in his last 15 games. Those who were patient with him were rewarded with 2+1=3, plus-2, 1 PPP, and 5 shots.
In what could only be described as the apocalypse, Steve Mason recorded a 33-save shutout. You have to go back over a year to February 22, 2011 to find the last time he pulled that off. So that's about one shutout in every 50 games started. Sounds about right.
The Sabres put Ryan Miller right back out there just one day after a 43-save shutout of the Ducks. He responded with a 39-save shutout of the Sharks last night. He's doing everything he can to not let you get him cheap in next season's draft.
David Krejci played hero last night as he scored in the third period to tie the game then made it a hat trick in overtime to win it for the Bruins. He duplicated his output over the previous 15 games (2+1=3, minus-8) so that must have felt good.
Zdeno Chara with 1 goal and 1 assist last night and he's got 1+4=5 and 11 PIM over his last four games.
Fellow countryman, Marian Gaborik, also had a goal and an assist. The goal gives him 30 and puts him tied for fifth in the league in that category.
Marek Zidlicky with no points and a minus-2 last night. He's been a minus player with no points in his first three games as a Devil so I guess he's still feeling out the system.
Vinny Prospal with two assists and he's got 1+5=6 including 3 PPP over his last five games. Might be worth a pickup.
Gabriel Landeskog continues to show that he does everything as he dropped the gloves last night for the first time in his NHL career. As MOP put it, he was just a goal and an assist short of the Gordie Howe hat trick.
David Desharnais had 1+2=3 and in doing so, hit the 50 point mark in 65 games. He's also leading the Canadiens in scoring. I wonder what the prop bet on that would have been worth at the start of the season.
No call-ups or send-downs yesterday.
