Why didn't Ron Wilson think of this?
In Randy Carlyle's first game behind the Leafs bench he promoted Matt Frattin to L2 in Kulemin's place and the rookie had 1+1=2 in a season high 18 minutes of ice-time... worth noting.
Knock on wood, T.J. Oshie is putting together his healthiest and, not surprisingly, most productive season as he is up to 46 points after a run with 1+6=7 over his last five games.
Ryan Miller with a win in Vancouver last night (32/35) and he is the hottest thing going right now with a 6-0-2, 1.58 & .949 over his last eight games.
Josh Bailey scored again yesterday, that's goals in three straight games (four in total)... pick him up if you want to be disappointed cause it ain't gonna last. His point total is likely to drop for the third straight season (on pace for 22 right now).
Two more PPPs for Kevin Shattenkirk last night and he has 3+7=10 over his last 10 games.
Not sure how they are doing it but Tampa has pulled back into the playoff race (two points out) and Mathieu Garon is a weak yet effective goalkeeper with four wins in a row despite a .892 sv%.
Sweet revenge for Zack Kassian with 1+1=2 in 10 minutes of ice-time against his old team last night, especially sweet since it was his first goal in his last 24 games.
Steve Sullivan extended his point streak to seven games (3+8=11) with two points last night. He might be available in some shallow leagues, worth a look.
Two points last night for Derick Brassard and he has points in each game since the deadline and 3+5=8 over his last eight.
Mikhail Grabovski with a 2+1=3 going away present to Ron Wilson last night, although Ronny probably would have preferred that it came a little earlier.
Some of you may have been worried about Rick Nash's motivation after the trade deadline but it seems to be increasing as he had his first three point game of the season last night along with a plus-3, SHG & four shots.
Marc-Andre Fleury saw his sv% dip to .909 back on Feb 19th but since then he has won four straight games while only giving up five goals in aggregate.
The Coyotes signed WHL scoring leader Brendan Shinnimin to an ELC, he is having a great season with 53+66=119 in 62 games for Tri-City but he is also one of the oldest players in the league at 21, so try not to get mesmerized by the flashy numbers.
