Elias Shines in 1000th Game

Standard Spin: Hands up if you predicted a massive resurgence for 35-year old Patrik Elias this season.  If you're one of the few who did, kudos.  Elias has averaged a point-per-game over the first 44 contests this year - he's on pace for his best season since 2003-04 - and he posted another 3 points in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Jets.  It was Elias' 1000th career game, and it's definitely nice to see a veteran having a fantasy renaissance after a couple of mediocre campaigns.  He even seems to be picking up momentum, scoring 20 points in his last 15 games.  (Jan.18)
