Recent Fantasy Forward Recap
(3/14/12) There have been a number of strong performances over the past couple of days. Here are our fantasy hockey pool game notes from recent action:
Tyler Ennis scored 2 goals, and David Desharnais had 2 points in his return from injury, as the Sabres won 3-2. Stafford and Cole both had 2 point nights.
Phoenix and Nashville produced 9 goals in a 5-4 Nashville win. One of these two teams will likely make the second round, and very well could have to go through the other to get there. Just take a look at the potential playoff production.
Andy McDonald scored again and remains one of the hottest forwards. He has 9G, 17 points in 17 games since returning from concussion. He is also on a 6 game point streak (4G, 5A).
Jarome Iginla and Logan Couture both hit the 30 goal plateau on Tuesday, while Joe Thornton surpassed 50 assists. That's back-to-back games where the Sharks' offense has clicked. Thornton has 7 points in his last 4 games, Couture 3 goals in 2, Marleau 3 points in 4. Taylor Hall has goals in 3 straight games - he's now up to 26 on the year.
Danny Briere led the Flyers Tuesday with a goal and an assist. Good news to see that, especially with the playoffs around the corner. Jakub Voracek also scored - he has 3 points in his last 2 games.
The Richards (2G, 1A), Gaborik and Hagelin (1G, 2A each) line in NY is looking primed and ready for the postseason. They led the Rangers to a 4-2 win Tuesday.
Sean Bergenheim came to life in Florida on Tuesday; he had 2 goals, his first in 8 games. Wolski had 2 assists, and since joining FLA has 2G, 5A in 10 games. Wolski is currently playing on a line with Marcel Goc (2 points Tuesday) and they are getting some PP time.
Finally, Justin Williams, Kopitar, Brown and Jeff Carter all had 2 points in LA's 5-2 win over DET at home - this after losing to the Red Wings just 2 games prior.
