One game after seeing his five-game point streak come to an end, Datsyuk came out and got right back on the horse. He remains a tick above a point-per-game pace on the season, and he's now just one short of last year's 12 power-play points.

Datsyuk scored a power-play goal, tacked on an even-strength assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's win over the Stars.

That's his third consecutive two-point effort and fourth in five games now, so Datsyuk is officially white-hot now that he's gotten over the groin injury that was dogging him for a while there. He owns a sparkling 11 goals and 19 points in 15 games this year -- a slightly higher scoring rate than that of Sidney Crosby and Jake Voracek, the NHL's co-leaders in points.

Datsyuk notched two goals in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

Wednesday's game was Datsyuk's first since Nov. 16 due to a nagging groin injury, but the center proved once again that he's still an elite fantasy producer when healthy. His second goal was also the game winner, and moved his point total to 13 through 11 games this season.

Datsyuk (groin) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Flyers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

After returning to practice Tuesday, Datsyuk was back on the ice for Wednesday's morning skate, participating fully in drills. He'll find himself outside of a top-six role following a four-game absence, as he's set to skate with Stephen Weiss and Darren Helm on the team's third line. The arrangement won't necessarily resulted in decreased minutes for Datsyuk, but his scoring opportunities might not be quite as bountiful while he skates with lesser linemates.

Datsyuk's groin injury just won't go away, and is starting to diminish his fantasy value. He's still an elite player when healthy, having recorded five goals and six assists in 10 games, but his health certainly needs to be monitored.
