Plekanec dished out two assists and went plus-3 in Thursday's win over the Hurricanes, pushing him to the 50-point mark for the first time since the 2011-12 season.

Rumors of the 32-year-old's demise have been greatly exaggerated, as he's bounced back from last season's mediocre 43-point showing to post his fifth 50-plus-point campaign. Plekanec's been particularly productive of late, having rattled off five points in the last four games.

Plekanec set up Brendan Gallagher's second-period tally in Thursday's loss to the Kings.

Plekanec put the scoring chance in motion by firing off a shot on goal that bounced off goalie Jonathan Quick before Gallagher collected the rebound and found the back of the net. It would go down as Plekanec's only shot on goal during the contest, mirroring a trend of light activity he's fallen victim to of late. While Plekanec hasn't noticed a prolonged scoring drought as a result, he's still put one or zero shots on goal in three of his last five games, making it a bit hard to reliably depend on him.
