Staal provided a goal and assist in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Sabres.

Staal nearly willed the 'Canes to a comeback from a four-goal deficit, as he had a hand in two of the team's third-period scores to cut the Sabres' lead to one. While the rally ultimately fell short, Staal can still take solace in the fact that he's been scorching of late, producing four goals and six assists over his last eight contests. He's an easy activation right now.

Staal scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Saturday's 3-1 victory over New Jersey. His current point streak now stands at three games and six points, including two goals.

This little streak is saving his season -- his 49 points are his lowest point total since his rookie year (yes, he still hasn't matched his lockout total of 53 points). Take advantage of this run. And remember his name next fall -- he'll be just 31 in October and he still has at least a couple more solid seasons in him. He'll be better than this.

Staal scored his 20th goal and assisted on two more in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.

This hasn't been a good year for Staal -- in fact, it's inarguably the worst season he's posted since his rookie campaign -- but with four points in the last two, maybe he's set for a strong finish that'll make the fantasy community feel better about his prospects for next year.
