Kopitar dished out two assists and went plus-4 in Thursday's 8-2 annihilation of Edmonton.

After two straight off the scoresheet, Kopitar got right back at it, and the big plus-minus effort has pushed him just one tick short of being even for the year. Despite those two down games, Kopi's on a good late-season run, having totaled 10 points in his last eight contests.

Kopitar pushed his point streak to four games by assisting twice in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.

Despite going plus-2 both Tuesday and Wednesday, he's still minus-1 over that four-game span. Nonetheless, Kopitar has been a consistent source of offense, as usual, despite his goal-scoring having fallen off this season.

Kopiter factored into all of the team's scoring, netting a goal and dishing out two assists in Monday's 3-1 win over the Devils.

It's the second three-point outing in the past three weeks for Kopitar, as he's been on fire in the month of March. The 27-year-old has tallied 12 points in his last 10 contests, and is now up to 57 points (15 goals) on the season. The numbers are down almost across the board for the center, but he's still provided enough production to make him a worthwhile play for fantasy purposes.

Kopitar scored an unassisted goal, helped out on Marian Gaborik's empty-netter and went plus-2 with a trio of takeaways Thursday in a win over Vancouver.

A dominant all-around effort for Kopitar, who also won 13 of 23 faceoffs. He's in the midst of one of his more productive periods of the season, with seven points in his last five games pushing him over 50 on the season.

Kopitar was named the game's first star Tuesday after picking up a goal, two assists and a plus-3 rating in a 5-2 win over Edmonton.

A sparkling outing for Kopitar, who had managed just two points and a minus-3 rating over the last five games coming in. It's been a disappointing campaign for the winger, as he'll need to score at better than a point-per-game pace the rest of the way to match last year's 70 points, and he has practically no chance to hit 29 goals this year, as he has only 13 to his credit thus far. Still just 27 years old, Kopitar should have years of productivity ahead of him, but it's concerning to see how much less he's shooting this year than in prior seasons. With 19 games left to go in the season, he's got 102 shots on goal -- 98 short of last year's 200.

Kopitar picked up his 12th goal of the season in Monday's 3-2 win over the Lightning.It's Kopitar's first marker since Jan. 17. After a sluggish open to the season, Kopitar caught fire from about mid-December to mid-January to recapture the confidence of his fantasy owners, but he's slowed down noticeably since then. Kopitar's seven points over his last 12 games still make it worthwhile for his owners to slot him in the lineup most nights, though it's starting to look likely that he'll finish with lower numbers across the board compared to those he posted in 2013-14.
