Big Nights for Kovalchuk, Spezza
Ilya Kovalchuk had his best fantasy performance of the season Tuesday in a 4-1 Devils' win over the Sabres. He factored in on every goal, notching a hat-trick and chipping in a helper for a four point night. It pushed him to 25-goals on the season, and he might be the hottest player in the league at the moment. This marks the third time in seven games that he's scored at least three points, and he has 17-points in total over that stretch.
Jason Spezza also had a four-point game and factored in on every goal for the Senators in a 4-0 victory over Tampa Bay. Like Kovalchuk, he notched a hat-trick and threw in an assist, and he's in the midst of a hot streak of his own. He has three straight multi-point games, and ten-points in his last four games.
