Strait registered an assist in Friday's win over the Penguins.

The secondary helper came on John Tavares' game-winning third-period goal, giving Strait just his seventh point in 51 games. He's been able to hold off Calvin de Haan and Matt Donovan for a regular role on the Isles' second defensive pairing, but serves in mainly a stay-at-home capacity.

Strait was credited with an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.Strait had a costly turnover in the final minute of the first period that directly resulted in a game-tying goal by Cam Atkinson, but redeemed himself to an extent with the secondary assist on the first of two goals on the evening by John Tavares. With Calvin de Haan nursing a facial injury, Strait has held down a lineup spot for the last handful of games. De Haan is now healthy, but coach Jack Capuano has been hesitant to change his lineup with the Isles winning their last four games. Once that streak comes to an end, there's a high likelihood that de Haan will draw back in for Strait on a near-every game basis.

Strait had a goal and an assist in Saturday's win over the Blue Jackets. It was his second game in a row after sitting out for 11 straight (personal).

The points double his season total, so don't open up a tab and check the waiver wire. He'll be there. And that's exactly where he should stay.
