Trending: Peter Mueller (1G, +1, 2 PIM, 2:35 PP, 3 SOG) was coming off his impressive three-point performance against the Panthers. The guy produces when he’s in the lineup. Stefan Elliott (1A, +2, 1:34 PP, 1 SOG) has points in B2B games after a long dry spell that lasted back all through January. Paul Stastny (2A, +1, 1 SOG) had five points in five games before tonight. T.J. Galiardi (1A, +1, 1:46 PP, 2 SOG) had nothing in six before tonight. Rookie Gabriel Landeskog’s (1G, 2 SOG) production has been a little hit or miss, but make no mistake… this kid will be a stud in this league. Not just good. A stud.
