News: Green potted a goal and added a power-play assist in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Penguins.
Impact: The goal was Green's first since Dec. 20. During that month-plus drought, he's at least made himself useful for fantasy owners by racking up 13 assists, bringing his point total up to 29 for the season in 40 games. If health permits, Green looks like he'll make a push for his first 50-point campaign since 2009-10.
News: Backstrom collected two assists in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Penguins.
Impact: Backstrom is one of the best passers in the entire NHL, and he's proving it again this season, as his 35 assists rank fourth in the league. He's currently on a five game point streak, and has racked up eight points over that span.
News: Ovechkin picked up two more goals in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Penguins.
Impact: It was Ovechkin's fourth two-point game in his last five, and he now leads the NHL with 29 goals in 48 games to date. The most surprising figure right now is that Ovechkin is a plus-12 on the year, after finishing last season as a minus-35.
