Eric Staal had his best game of the season Sunday according to coach Kirk Muller.
Staal got new linemates for the game as he centered Nathan Gerbe and Tuomo Ruutu as he had a goal and two assists in the 4-1 win. "It was probably his hardest-working game," Muller said. "He worked really hard but he worked smartly. He used his wingers really well. He really led us up front. Everyone contributed but he was the real leader." Staal now has six goals and 17 points and a nice scoring streak could be in his immediate future.

Eric Staal notched a goal for Carolina in its 4-2 loss to St. Louis on Saturday night.
Staal remains one of the best power forwards in the game, but he's struggled to find the offense this season, as he has only 11 points. The good part is that this isn't totally out of the norm. Two of his five goals have come in the last two games, though, so perhaps he's gaining some confidence and getting back on track. Nathan Gerbe scored the other goal. Riley Nash and Manny Malhotra recorded the assists.
