Wednesday's Daily Dosage - M.Smith, Ennis, Frattin...

Smith is so hot he even stops the ones that are going wide, just for shits & giggles

Third straight shutout last night for Mike Smith and while it was only against the BJs, this one should be equivalent to two Elliott or Quick shutouts as he had to stop 54 shots. Smith only has one regulation loss in his last 11 games (7-1-3, 1.94 & .947) to merge with the rest of his stellar numbers from this year.

Tyler Ennis remained on fire with two more points last night, he now has 8+11=19 over his last 12 games and 27 points in his last 24 games.

Randy Carlyle likes this... Matt Frattin with a Gordie Howe Hat-Trick for a nice stat-line of 1+1=2, plus-2, seven PIMs & five shots. His reward for an active night was a career high 19:55 of ice-time.

Pascal Dupuis kept the streak alive with an assist last night to make it 15 games on the trot (9+11=20).

I picked up Josh Bailey the other day after his hot streak and was hoping for some points but I guess I'll have to settle for the unexpected 10 minute misconduct last night.

3A for Bobby Ryan and while his points have been pretty scattered he does have 4+10=14 over his last 15 games which is at least better than the start of the season when his points were invisible.

Andrew Ladd came up with big goals in the 3rd & OT for the Jets last night, two of his seven shots on net. The points have dropped off a little from last year's 59 but the shots are way up (259 vs 195) and he is just two goals away from matching last year's 29.

Phil Kessel with 3A, plus-2 & eight shots last night to push him over the 80 point barrier for the year.

I didn't expect much from Marc-Andre Gragnani after his trade to Vancouver as I didn't think he'd see the ice much but with the Canucks gearing up for the playoffs and resting some guys, MAGs has been a regular lately and has a three game point streak going (1+2=3).

Going the opposite way in the Sabres-Canucks swap was Alexander Sulzer and he also has a three game point streak after a large evening with 2+1=3 during 24 minutes of ice-time. With Ehrhoff & Myers out, the Ginger Kraut has stepped up.

Not terrible... Allen York started his fourth straight game for the CBJs but two goals was too much as he took the loss. The rookie has appeared in 11 games this year and is sporting an impressive .920 sv%.

Brian Elliott had a week of rest following his three straight shutouts but he is getting the call tonight against the Red Wings.

The Leafs have sent Jussi Rynnas down to the AHL as Jonas Gustavsson is able to back-up Ben Scrivens.

The Islanders called up Matt Donovan from Bridgeport where he was the 4th leading scoring dman in the AHL with 10+32=42 in 69 games, pretty solid for a rookie pro. I like this kid.

NYI also signed 2010 1st rounder Brock Nelson after two seasons at North Dakota where he put up 28+19=47 in 42 this past season.

Buffalo signed goalie Connor Knapp after his four year career at Miami ending where he was 15-8-0, 1.69 & .933 during his senior year.
