Monday's Daily Dosage - Kunitz, Vanek, Price, Hodgson...

Chris Kunitz was feeling "super" on Sunday. - Greg Fiume

A fantasized look at Sunday's NHL games.

One three point night deserves another as it was hats off for Chris Kunitz. He scored on all three of the shots he took with two of them coming on the powerplay so lets give hin the fantasy line of the night. I guess you can say he's blazing now with six points in his last two games.

Sidney Crosby is heating up as he, too, has back to back three point games. His three assists gave him a four game point scoring streak good for 1+7=8, 3 PPP, and plus-4.

Two assists for Evgeni Malkin and that's his third straight two point game. He's only failed to put up points in 2 out of 9 games this season.

It kind of feels like Kris Letang has started slow but after a goal and an assist yesterday afternoon, he's tied for 3rd in the league among defensemen with 8 points.

Mike Ribeiro had a goal and an assist and it feels like he is the only Capitals player actually playing well.

Carey Price with the win stopping 32 of 33 shots on the way and he is just on fire. He's won 6 straight games and his season stats stand at .938 sv% and 1.70 gaa. How long until we start talking Vezina candidacy?

Well, it wasn't quite a 5-point game but we'll take the field goal (sorry for the lame football reference) from Thomas Vanek as he had 1+2=3 and plus-3. He now has a comfortable three point lead in the point scoring race with 19.

Riding Vanek's coattails was Cody Hodgson who put up an identical 1+2=3 and plus-3. This was his second three point game in the last three contests.

Your nightly shutout went to Johan Hedberg of the Devils who stopped all 22 shots. Moving on.

David Clarkson snapped his season long six game point scoring streak on Saturday night but he got right back at it with a goal yesterday. He has goals in 5 out of the team's 8 games this season.

Called up: David Rundblad, Charlie Coyle, Tim Wallace, Stephane Da Costa, Magnus Paajarvi, Jake Allen
