Eller scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Islanders. He now has four points (two goals, two assists) in his last four games.

Eller snapped a 14-game goal drought when he potted the game-winning goal in Saturday's victory over Arizona. It was his 10th goal of the season.

It's been a tough slog for Eller who has struggled to take his game to the next level. He did manage 30 points in 26 games during the lockout-shortened season, but right now, he has a mere 18 in 61 contests. There's still time for him to grow into his game a bit, but our expectations have been sufficiently lowered. The speedy forward may simply be a great third-line guy with awkward finish.
