Chimera scored a goal, added an assist and went plus-3 on Sunday in a 4-3 Game 6 loss to the Rangers.

Chimera's been a surprising performer in these playoffs, having picked up three goals and seven points in 13 games; he only collected 19 points in 77 regular-season contests, so this is quite an outburst by his standards. The Caps have been mixing and matching lines, and Chimera's grouping with Joel Ward and Evgeny Kuznetsov looked awfully strong Sunday.

Chimera picked up a goal, an assist and a plus-3 rating Thursday in a Game 5 victory over the Islanders.

He'd collected just a single point -- a Game 2 goal -- in the first four games of the series, but Chimera busted out with a big effort in this one. Of course, his scoring is rather sparing, so don't look for many more outbursts like this from Chimera.

Chimera recorded an assist in Washington's 4-2 win over Carolina on Tuesday.

The assist comes on the heels of a two goal outing against the Rangers on Sunday. Chimera is playing on the Capitals' third line with Eric Fehr and Brooks Laich, and the trio have been on fire since put together. With only seven goals and 12 assists in 72 games this season, the 35-year-old Chimera is falling short of expectations set by last year's 42 point campaign, but if the trio can continue to perform well in the final two weeks, he may have some fantasy value in deeper leagues.

Chimera tallied a pair of goals in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.

It was the first multi-goal contest of the season for Chimera as he ended a 20-game goalless streak dating back to Feb. 6. The 35-year-old was never an especially high point scorer, but he's produced just 18 points this year so his contributions tend to be more valuable to the Capitals than to potential fantasy owners.

Chimera tallied two assists, went plus-2 and gathered seven penalty minutes Tuesday in a win over Columbus.

A finely rounded fantasy performance from the veteran wing, who's managed a pair of two-assist efforts in his last four games, but otherwise hasn't found the scoresheet since Feb. 6 (and Jan. 14 before that). Even if hits play in your format, he's got marginal value in fantasy purposes; if they don't, he's bordering on useless.

Chimera gathered two assists in Wednesday's loss to the Penguins.

Chimera's inability to hold down a regular spot in the lineup has been his undoing this season, as the two assists give him just 14 points on the campaign. He saw only 9:33 of action Wednesday, and the trend of low minutes figures to continue with the Capitals unwilling to use him in a focal role.

Chimera scored his fifth goal of the season and had an assist in Friday's win over Anaheim.

Chimera had previously gone eight straight games without a point, so it's nice to see him back on the scoresheet. While he's only had two multi-point games on the season, he's skating on the second line, making him an interesting fantasy option in deeper formats. The 35-year-old has flashes of brilliance, but he's too inconsistent to be trusted in most leagues.

Chimera will likely be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Kings, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.

Aaron Volpatti (neck) is expected to play in a game for the first time this season, though he's been healthy for the past five weeks.

Chimera picked up his team's lone goal in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Flyers.

With just four goals and six assists in 41 games on the season, Chimera doesn't score often, but he certainly made it count Wednesday. That being said, the veteran winger is still more valuable to the Caps than he is to any fantasy owners.

Chimera scored his first goal in nearly a month and added an assist for his first multi-point game of the season Thursday in an overtime win against the Jackets.

A rare offensive outburst for Chimera, who's followed up last year's career-high 42 points by getting off to the second-worst scoring rate of his career. He still has just eight points to show for 30 games, but has at least been a minor asset in PIM (22) and hits (59).
