Patrick Marleau LW SAN 2 Months

Marleau posted his second consecutive two-point game and third in the last four Thursday, picking up a goal and a power-play assist while going plus-2.

Marleau's heated up dramatically over the last five, potting three goals to go with four assists, and four of those points have come on the man advantage. It's been a down year, but maybe the veteran forward is primed for a big second half. It's hard to keep a seven-time 30-goal man down.

Marleau scored his ninth goal of the season and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

Marleau's goal-scoring woes have been well documented this season, so it was nice to see him pick up his second in four games after a 16-game drought. Despite the nine tallies, Marleau should still easily hit the 20-goal mark for the 13th time in his career, as his current 6.1 shooting percentage on 147 shots is well below his career mark of 13.5, so don't be surprised if he goes off on a few scoring binges coming out of the All-Star break.

Marleau notched two assists in Saturday's win over the Flames.

Marleau now has points in back-to-back games after managing just one assist in his previous 14 games. The 35-year-old now has eight goals and 31 points in 46 games on the season, to go with an ugly plus-9 rating. He's playing much better of late, though, recording 10 shots on goal in his last two outings, giving him 138 shots on goal on the season -- 22nd most in the NHL. While he's been inconsistent, Marleau is still a solid fantasy option and who should still end up with around 60 points.

Marleau snapped a 16-game goalless skid Thursday against the Maple Leafs, finding the net on one of his six shot attempts of the net.

The goal drought was Marleau's longest since 2002, when he went from Feb. 12 to Mar. 23 without a tally. Marleau's breakthrough score wasn't especially pretty, as it required goalie James Reimer to inadvertently knock the puck over the line. However, the 35-year-old will surely take the goal any way he can get it, and it was made extra sweet by the fact that it went down as his third game-winner of the season.

Marleau hasn't scored in 16 game and has only four assists in that span. Things are getting epically horrible for Marleau owners. His potential is huge and it makes him tough to drop. His value is really low, making trading Marleau a potentially bad situation for owners.

Marleau picked up an assist in Monday's 3-2 win over the Jets.

The assist snapped a nine-game pointless streak for the forward, a development unforeseen after he produced 27 points over his first 31 games. He's still gone without a goal since Dec. 6, but his six shot attempts Monday -- which tied a season high -- offer hope that drought may soon come to an end.

Marleau extended his point streak to six games Tuesday, grabbing two assists -- one on the power play -- in a 5-2 win over Edmonton.

Marleau just keeps on finding the scoresheet with regularity, though he's been doing it in a more Joe Thornton-like manner, playing dishmaster with just a single goal and eight assists over the course of these six games.

Marleau scored the game-winner in Saturday's match against Calgary.

That's only Marleau's second even strength goal in the last 23 games. He's only got three goals over that stretch at all. Marleau is not reaching the goal-scoring levels owners expect. He's bound to turn it around a bit, but after scoring 33 goals last year, it's concerning that he's on pace to score just 21. However, he's on pace to nearly double his assist total from last season.

Marleau gathered two assists in Thursday's win over the Bruins.

Marleau has racked up five assists over his last three games, doing well to recover from a streak of five contests without a point in November. With 23 points in 27 games this season, he looks poised to again threaten the 70-point mark.
