The goal was the 10th of the season for MacArthur, but just his first since Dec. 2. In the nine games in between, he managed just one assist on 18 shot attempts. He deserves something of a mulligan for suffering from the flu during the middle of the stretch, but the returns have still been rather disappointing.
