Ehlers has finally started to heat up with three goals and one assist during a three-game point streak. He only had one goal and three helpers in 13 matches to start the season.
Nov 12 - 11:31 AM

Jack Roslovic scored his first goal of the season on Sunday in a 5-2 win over New Jersey.

Roslovic opened the scoring 3:02 into the first period. He was popular sleeper candidate going into the season, but hasn't been given much of a chance. The 11:59 of ice time he received on Sunday was a season-high. It was hoped he would get a chance to center the second line, but he hasn't been given that opportunity. Roslovic only has three points in 15 games.
Nov 12 - 11:27 AM

Connor Hellebuyck stopped 34 of 36 shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Hellebuyck was in a bit of a cold spell, but has now won back-to-back starts, allowing just two goals in each of those contests. The 25-year-old goaltender will see his record improve to 7-5-1 with a 2.86 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage. He'll look to make it three straight on Wednesday night when the Jets host the Capitals.
Nov 11 - 10:03 PM

Mark Scheifele scored two goals and added an assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils completely forgot to cover Scheifele when Blake Wheeler found him alone in front for his first of the night. Scheifele then picked up another goal, this time being in the right place at the right time when Jacob Trouba's point shot deflected right to him at the side of goal. The 25-year-old center is up to nine goals and 19 points in 16 games this season.
Nov 11 - 9:57 PM
