Aleksander Barkov with 1G, +3, 4SOG, 1 BS last night in 17:57 of ice time. He appears to be hitting his stride as he has 8 points in his last 9 games.
One on the few bright spots on the Sabres is Christian Ehrhoff as he's had 9 points in his last 13 games. He's worth a look in most leagues. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets traded to a more potent offensive team as Buffalo's been in rebuild mode as of late.
James Neal just may have won some owners their week with a clutch 3+2=5, 4PIM, 5SOGs, 2PPGs, 2PPAs. He's got the undisputed Fantasy Line of the Night as it appears as if he's not missing Malkin too much.
Jaden Schwartz has been on fire lately with a 5 game goal scoring streak after burying another last night. What's most encouraging is that he had 19 minutes of action last night which is surprising since Ken Hitchcock tends to lean on his veterans. The trust is there, the confidence is there, there's no reason why this kid won't continue to be successful in St. Louis for at least the duration of the season.
The diminutive Mats Zuccarello has been quietly putting up a fantastic season for the Rangers and after 1+2=3 on the night, he has 9+19=28 on the year. It's certainly quite ironic how New York is being dragged along, not by their stars Rick Nash, Brad Richards or Henrik Lundqvist, but by Zuccarello and Cam Talbot.
Look to Nathan Gerbe if you're in need of some short term offense. After a goal last night he's put up 9 points in his last 10 games.
Thomas Hickey did his best Erik Karlsson impression with 1+2=3, +4, 4BS (jokes Karlsson would never be +4 with 4BS in a game)
Kyle Okposo continues his breakout campaign with 2+1=3,+2,6SOGs.
Logan Couture finally got the monkey off of his back and scored last night. He has 31 points on the season which is solid, but remarkable considering that, prior to last night, he had gone 7 games without a point and 11 without a goal.
