Eller scored a goal and dished out two assists Wednesday, helping his team even the series with a 3-2 win over Vegas in Game 2.

EDGE Analysis

With Evgeny Kuznetsov injured (upper body), Eller picked up the slack when his team needed it most. The Dane played a role in all three Washington goals, notching the primary assist on two goals and jamming the Capitals' first goal into an open net with Marc-Andre Fleury out of position. It's Eller's third three-point game of the playoffs, and he's showing a tendency to step up when the Capitals need a boost outside of their big guns. Eller can be a feast-or-famine player, but he's good value because of the chance for his games like Wednesday's

Eller scored a goal and two assists in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Lightning in Game 3.

EDGE Analysis

One of the helpers came on the power play as Eller continued his impressive playoff run. After beginning the postseason with two points (both goals) in his first seven games, the 29-year-old now has three goals and nine points in his last seven games.

Eller registered three assists, a power-play point and a plus-2 rating during Sunday's 4-1 win in Game 2 against the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Eller had a marquee playoff performance and now has two goals and five points in eight games during this postseason. The 28-year-old Dane is relied upon heavily for his defensive acumen, but more offensive efforts like this one won't hurt as Washington tries to get over the second-round hump for the first time since 1997.

Eller scored the game-winner nine minutes into the second overtime period Tuesday in a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jackets in Game 3.

EDGE Analysis

The road team has won all three games in the series so far in OT, although Eller's tally wasn't quite as impressive as the previous goals by the Jackets as the 28-year-old wasn't even immediately aware the puck had bounced in off him after Sergei Bobrivsky failed to squeeze Brett Connelly's shot. It was Eller's first point of the series, but he has been active, putting 13 shots on net through three games.

Eller recorded two assists and a plus-1 rating during Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

Eller has been clicking well in recent outings with three goals and five points in his last six games. The Danish center has seen his offensive role increase while Evgeny Kuznetsov (upper body) is on the injured list and has some sleeper value in standard formats as long as Kuznetsov is on the mend, so pick him up if you're in need of a playoff boost.

Eller provided an empty-net dagger against the Islanders in Friday's 6-3 home win.

EDGE Analysis

Sure, the cage was uncovered, but Eller still needed to telegraph the puck from the defensive zone in order to light the lamp. It was the 17th goal of the season for Eller, who earned a five-year, $17.5 million contract extension with the Caps last month.

Eller recorded a goal during Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

With his second goal in as many games, Eller has established a new career-high of 31 points in 60 games. The 28-year-old Dane has had a solid season for the Capitals, who rewarded him with a five-year contract extension earlier in February. Eller is worth a look in deeper leagues but will need a boost in offensive opportunity to be worth rostering in most formats.

Eller signed a five-year, $17.5 million contract extension with the Capitals on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Eller is enjoying a career year with the Capitals, which counts as his second in the nation's capital. He's up to 11 goals and 17 assists, with five power-play points tying a personal best through 53 games. According to CapFriendly, this deal is similar to the one procured by Eller's former Montreal teammate David Desharnais in March of 2013.

Eller scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Friday's 4-2 win over Columbus.

EDGE Analysis

The two-point night improves Eller to six goals and five assists through his past 13 games, which is a nice uptick in production. His fantasy ceiling is low because of his supporting role behind Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov up the middle. However, Eller could be worth a look in deeper settings and daily contests while scoring frequently.

Eller picked up two assists with two shots, a blocked shot and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

He's now got eight points (five goals, three assists) over his last nine games, although Eller played only 10:27 on Wednesday -- his lowest ice time of the season. The 28-year-old is now only five points shy of his previous career high of 30, and barring a disastrous second half he should easily be able to set a new personal best.
