Wideman dished two power-play assists in Tuesday's Game 4 win against Vancouver.

He'd picked up just a lonely assist in the first three games of the series, but 12 PIM as well. Wideman's coming off the best offensive season of his career, and three points in four games give him a fine playoff pace in his first postseason action since 2011-12 with Washington.

Wideman (rest) is not expected to play Saturday against the Jets, Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet reports.

Wideman has been an oasis for fantasy owners down the stretch, producing a goal and six assists over his last three games. However, with the Flames having punched their playoff ticket with a win over the Kings on Thursday, Wideman will be rested for the team's final regular-season contest. The blueliner will finish the campaign with 15 goals and 56 points, which will represent career marks in both categories.

Wideman assisted on each of the first two goals Thursday in a 3-1 win over Los Angeles.

With that, he reached and passed the 40-assist mark for the first time in his career. This has been Wideman's finest NHL campaign, and he's closing it out on a red-hot streak, with seven points in his last three games. Playoff poolies should mark him out, as he's not a name-brand guy, and thus may be an undervalued asset for fantasy owners.

Wideman set up three goals as the Flames doubled up the Ducks 6-3 on Wednesday.

Wideman and his defense partner Kris Russell have been some kind of hot lately, combining for 15 points over their last four games.

Wideman contributed two assists, with one coming on the power play, in Friday's win over the Red Wings.

That's back-to-back two-assist games for Wideman, who has seen his ice time shoot up the last few contests with Mark Giordano (biceps) out of the picture. Though he's averaging 24:08 TOI for the season, Wideman has topped that mark in five consecutive games, a trend that should continue in light of his hot play. With 41 points on the campaign, the 31-year-old should have a real shot at surpassing his previous career high of 50 points, established in 2008-09 with the Bruins.
