Eakin (2 percent owned in Yahoo leagues, center eligibility) played with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn, and had an assist on each of the Dallas goals in 18:34 of ice time, including 1:16 on the top power-play unit with Seguin, Benn, Trevor Daley and Jason Spezza. Eakin assisted on Benn's first-period goal and Daley's goal in the second period.
Eakin had been playing on the second line with Antoine Roussel and Ales Hemsky, and had one point in his past six games. He got more ice time than his season average (17:18), and may be worth adding if his chemistry with Seguin and Benn continues.
- New Jersey Devils forward Scott Gomez (2 percent owned, C) picked up an assist in a 3-2 shootout win against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
