Byfuglien, Letang with Big Nights

Standard Spin: Big Buff and Kris Letang - two of the NHL's premier offensive defensemen - both had solid outings in the big 8-5 goal-fest in Pittsburgh on Saturday.  With another goal and assist, Byfuglien has 4 points in his last 2 games.  His current up-tick is a good sign, as Byfuglien went the previous 3 games without recording a point, and had just 1 assist in his 4 games back from injury.

Kris Letang's 2G and 1A performance is even more important.  After recording 4 points in his first 3 games back from injury in the middle of January, he went silent in his next 6.  Fantasy hockey GMs are certainly hoping that Saturday's outburst represents Letang getting back on track. (2/12/12)
