Lots of Scoring in Afternoon Action
(2/18/12) 21 goals spread across 3 NHL games on Saturday afternoon, made for plenty of fantasy points to go around. Starting with the Philly/PIT battle: all three Flyers returning to action got onto the scoresheet - Jagr (2G), Briere and JvR (1A each) - but it wasn't enough as Matt Cooke (2G, 1A), Jordan Staal (1G, 1A), and James Neal, who scored his 30th of the year, led the Pens to a 6-4 win.
In Columbus it was all one-sided as the Hawks muzzled the Blue Jackets 6-1. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp both had 3 point efforts, and even Patrick Kane scored - just his 13th of the year and only his 5th in the last 31 games!
And in St. Louis, the Blues blanked the Wild 4-0. Andy McDonald scored again and now has 2G and 1A in his 4 games back since suffering another concussion at the start of the year. Ride him if you can while he's healthy.
