News: Staal was a plus-1 in Thursday's win over Ottawa.
Impact: Although Staal (one assist in his last 11 games) hasn't had much of an impact to fantasy owners in quite some time, surely this comes as a relief to his teammates and coaching staff. After missing practice on Wednesday with what was labeled as a maintenance day and not participating in Thursday's optional practice it's good for everyone to see the 28-year-old stay at home defenseman return to his 21-plus minutes of ice time a game.
News: Yandle was a plus-2 with an assist in Thursday's 5-1 victory over the Senators.
Impact: Yandle also chipped in two penalty minutes to go along with his two shots on goal and two blocked shots. That's four points in the last three tilts for the team's prized deadline acquisition who seems to be getting comfortable in Manhattan.
News: Nash was a plus-3 with an assist and four penalty minutes in Thursday's 5-1 win over Ottawa.
Impact: An rare night for Nash, who ordinarily fills the goals and assist columns, but rarely provides two penalties in a game for fantasy owners. Although he extends his goal-scoring drought to a season-high eight games, Nash seems to be awakening with two assists in his last three games. The veteran forward is now just five points shy of tying a career-high 69 point campaign, set in 2007-08 with the Blue Jackets.
