Big Night for St. Louis
Standard Spin: Martin St. Louis is best known for his playmaking abilities, but Saturday is was all about finishing, as the veteran Stanley Cup champion and former Hart Trophy winner recorded the hat-trick. St. Louis is absolutely on fire right now, enjoying a 9-game point-scoring streak in which he has 6G and 16 points. Vinny Lacavalier had 4 points on the night and Steven Stamkos had two points, including his 34th goal of the year.
Game Note: Mikael Samuelsson scored again and now has 4G and 5 points in his last 4 games. Tomas Fleischmann also scored and now has 4 points in his last 4, after a pointless drought that lasted 8 games. (2/5/12)
