Michalek scored a goal and dished a pair of assists (one on an empty-netter) in Thursday's 6-4 win over Boston.

The solid performance ended a three-game scoreless skid from Michalek and probably felt pretty darn good after he'd been frustrated Tuesday in Carolina, firing six shots on net with no results to show for it.

Michalek found the back of the net twice and chipped in an assist in Saturday's 7-2 rout of the visiting Oilers.What a performance by the 30-year-old, who now has five points in his last six games -- four of them goals -- and 20 points on the season.
