GOALS: 4 | ASST: 7 | PTS: 11
SOG: 95 | +/-: -23
"The last 20 games he’s really settled into what I think is his best hockey as an Oiler," MacTavish said according to "He's aggressive. He's assertive making decisions. He's decisive on the ice. He's jumping up on the play at a level he never … he did from time-to-time, but he never really felt comfortable doing it because he's a conservative guy by nature. But he's playing the game. He's playing the game to win and everybody around the League is seeing that. He'd be a valuable piece for anybody to add.

"And pending his UFA status, there's motivation on our part to move him or get him signed. So it'll be one of those things."

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
