John Tavares C NYI 24 Days

Tavares netted two goals -- including the game-winner -- in Friday's victory over the Flames.

Tavares' first goal came eight minutes into the first period, finishing off a power-play opportunity for his 16th goal of the season. He would claim No. 17 in the third period, giving him four goals in his two career games in Calgary. The center remains tied for 19th in the league in scoring this season, but with 34 points in 38 games, it's not as though he's seen a dramatic dip in his production from previous campaigns.

Tavares netted two goals on six shot attempts in Saturday's loss to the Sabres.

With 15 goals and 16 assists over 35 games, Tavares isn't quite producing at a point-per-game clip, but he's more or less justified the lofty expectations placed on him on draft day. The six shots Tavares attempted Saturday was his second-highest total of the season, aiding him to his first multi-point outing since Nov. 22.

Tavares scored his 13th goal of the season in Saturday's win over Tampa Bay.

He's on track for a 30 goal season. He's behind his scoring pace from the past few seasons and he has just six points in his last 10 games. He hasn't had a two-point game since Nov. 22. It's hard to sit him, but we've been expecting more.

Tavares found the net on one of his three shot attempts in Thursday's loss to the Blues.

With a goal or assist in three straight contests, Tavares continues to chug along at just under a point-per-game pace on the season. He's only had two multi-point showings since opening the campaign with four of that variety, but there's something to be said about his relative consistency.

Tavares picked up an assist Saturday and in doing so, he extended his current point streak to three games and three points. He has 23 points in 24 games.

Slow and steady wins the race and this guy has every chance to do just that. Or come close to it anyway. He has a 90 point season in him; it just might not be this season.

Tavares had his first multi-point game since Nov. 5 on Saturday night. He scored a goal and added an assist in a 4-1 win over Pittsburgh.

He still has 20 points in as many games, but multi-point efforts have been hard to come by. That won't stop us from rolling him out there every game we can. #nhlstud.

Tavares sniped a pair of goals Wednesday, including the game winner in Wednesday's 3-2 OT win over the Ducks.

Tavares and Co. capitalized on the absence of Ducks superstars Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, who both sat out with the flu. JT now has six goals and 14 points in 12 games this season and should further find his groove as the season marches on.

Tavares picked up two assists and scored the game-winning goal in the shootout Thursday against the Sharks.

That's why he's the star. Tavares has delivered multi-point efforts in all four games to stat the year, giving him an amazing nine points in the early going. As long as he avoids injury, he's in for a huge season -- perhaps his best yet.
