A fantasized look at Sunday's NHL action.
Marcus Johansson had a goal and an assist yesterday and he's at 2+2=4 in the 5 games since he missed a month.
MarJo's arch nemesis, Mathieu Perreault also put up a goal and an assist to give him 3+2=5 over his last four games.
Troy Brouwer continues to be a nice source of points, powerplay points, and hits as he had 1+1=2, 1 PPP, and 2 hits yesterday. For the month of March he has 2+5=7, 3 PPP, and 15 hits in 8 games.
Ryan Miller took the loss allowing an ugly 5 goals on 25 shots. He's winless in his last 5 starts and has given up 3 or more in 4 of those starts. At this point, I don't want him manning the nets for my country.
That's four straight wins for Tomas Vokoun as he was impressive, saving 31 of 32. He's won four straight games and his record stands at 7-3-0 on the season.
In a multi-cat special, lets go with Brooks Orpik for fantasy line of the day. He had 1 assist, 2 PIM, 6 blocks, 7 hits, and plus-2. He's a beast in leagues that count hits and blocks.
Pascal Dupuis continued his dreamy run with an assist yesterday afternoon. He's at 7+2=9 with 33 shots over his last 7 games. That's all without a powerplay point.
Robin Lehner is still without a regulation loss. He stopped 25 of 26 shots to beat the Jets last night and is now at 2-0-4 on the season with .946 sv% and 1.90 gaa. Someone throw this man's name in the Calder talks.
Roman Josi with his second straight 2-point game as he had a goal and an assist on 3 shots. That's the consistency I was talking about, Roman.
Powerplay goal for Shea Weber and his numbers are starting to look much more Shea Weber-like. Over his last seven games he has 2+6=8, 15 PIM, 5 PPP, 15 hits, and 14 blocks.
Since I bashed him two days ago, I suppose I have to mention that Jordan Eberle had the game winning goal and added an assist last night. There, I mentioned it.
