Dan Boyle - After missing 36 games because of a wrist injury, Boyle has come back with a flurry.  He’s scored in five of his six games, tallying 7 points (1.17) showing again why he’s one of the games best scoring defenseman.  He’s averaged 52 points per season the past four years, and he’s primed for a strong finish.

Goalie
Jason Labarbera - Jason has had a lot more success between the pipes recently.  He’s 4-1 in his past six games and 8-3 in his twelve, after going 8-16 in his first twenty-eight.  His GAA in his past six games is 2.62 with a 92.3% save percentage.  In his first thirty-four games he stopped 90.9% of his shots.
