Nikolai Khabibulin: Still the worst fantasy goalie in the league... it's just closer now
Nikolai Khabibulin: Still the worst fantasy goalie in the league... it's just closer now

In his first five games back from injury Ryan Callahan had only two assists.  Well his last two games things have gotten better as he has 3+2=5.  He could be ready to go on run like befure he was hurt.

Milan Lucic is keeping up the breakout pace (on pace for 55 points).  He had 1+1=2 last night and now has 12 points and 25 PIM's in his last 14 games. 

David Krejci has also put together a nice stretch.  His 1+1=2 last night gives him 16 points in 16 games.  Probably no coincidence that he's been shooting more (2.5 shots / game) over that span.

Nicklas Lidstrom owners know full well how he's been slumping lately (only two assists in last 16 games) but he picked two PPA last night so hopefully this gets him going again.

Danny Cleary is playing around a 60 point pace this year.  Last night he had a 1+2=3, plus-2 and five shots and now has seven points in his last five games. Even though he's missed 24 games to injury he's still on pace for a career high 51 points.

Pekka Rinne with a big 35 save out of 36 shot win over the Canucks last night.  He's now 2nd in the league in gaa (2.07) and sv% (.931).  I love this guy.

Another Pred I love is Shea Weber.  Weber has 6+15=21 in his last 22 games.  He's a stud.

I drafted Ales Hemsky this season in one league and I was so unimpressed I ended up dropping him in November (when the inevitable injury came).  He's making me slightly regret that decision with some fine play lately.  After two goals last night he now has eight points in his last seven games.

Nikolai Khabibulin with another great game and win... that's two in a row!  He stopped 36 of 37 last night and 24 out of 25 the game before.  I guess he's due but it would take a special kind of desperation for me to start him in a fantasy league.
