Monday's Daily Dosage - Ryder, Glencross, Emery...

Olli Jokinen seems unsure if he wants to break this party up

Three shutouts yesterday and the winning teams combined for a total of four goals... what excitement!

Michael Ryder with a PPG on six shots yesterday and he has a goal in four straight and at least a point in 12 of his last 13 games (9+4=13). His shooting % is a sizzling 17.5% this year, well up from his 12.0% career mark heading into this season.

Curtis Glencross potted a goal in his fourth straight game yesterday as well and celebrated it by getting into a fist-fight with Steve Ott. Similar to Ryder I have to point out that this guy can't miss this season with 22 goals on just 85 shots (25.9% s%)... smells unsustainable to me, so don't get used to this kind of sniping ability.

A 30 save shutout of Minny yesterday for Semyon Varlamov and he is seeing the puck well as only four have got past him over his last five starts (.973 sv%).

Ray Emery has given up exactly one goal in each of his last three games and won each of them, including 23/24 in a win over the Red Wings yesterday. Is seems to be his net for the time being.

Man, if only teams would listen to Don Cherry and cover the goddam point!!!... Niklas Kronwall blasted one home yesterday and has 2+5=7 during a three game point streak.

3rd period top-cheddar-game-winner for Derek Stepan yesterday and he has 1+3=4 during a three game point streak.

Jamie McGinn was seeing some top line minutes and PP time for the Avs yesterday and since I'm mentioning him you can probably guess that he scored... and twice! Two goals on five shots in his third game with the Avs, this guy has some talent so I'd like to see what he can do playing in a bigger role.

Loui Eriksson with two points yesterday and he has been on a nice run with 4+5=9 & plus-8 over his last six games. Dude is on pace for his third straight 70+ point season and he has done it about as quietly as humanly possible.

Kurtis Foster was a healthy scratch yesterday for the Wild... he had no points in his first four games after the trade.

Anders Nilsson was brought up recently to fill in for the injured Al Montoya and he shut out the Devils yesterday in what was his first start since November. If you can tell what is going on with the Islanders goalies from game to game then you're either an idiot savant or a liar.

Up from the AHL: Erik Gustafsson, Braden Holtby & Louis Leblanc.

Back down to the AHL: Zach Boychuk.
