Lucic picked up a pair of assists and racked up 12 PIM in Sunday's Game 6 win over the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

Lucic has been a bit of a disappointment for fantasy goers in the postseason so far. After scoring 23 goals in the regular season, he's managed to find twine just twice in 12 playoff games. He does rack up strong hit and PIM totals, but Lucic is barely shooting the puck and hasn't scored at even-strength. Lucic has 113 career playoff games to his name and the Oilers will be looking for that to come in use in Game 7 on Wednesday.

Lucic notched a powerplay marker, two penalty minutes, and a minus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss at the hands of the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

The goal was Lucic's second of the postseason and snapped an eight-game goal drought. Over the course of his 10-year NHL career, Lucic's scoring rate in the regular and postseasons are identical at 0.61 points per game, so his output of four points in 10 playoff games with the Oilers is certainly disappointing. Additionally, each of Lucic's goals have come on the power play and he is averaging just 1.5 shots on goal per game.

Lucic scored a goal with an assist and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's Game 1 overtime loss against the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

It's not shocking that Edmonton's most experience player in the playoffs was their best skater in Game 1. He has 27 goals and 66 points with a plus-39 rating in 102 career postseason games. Lucic is a solid DFS option heading into Game 2 against the Sharks on Friday.

Lucic scored two power-play goals and an even strength goal for a natural hat trick in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

All three of Lucic's tallies came in the third period, turning a 2-1 deficit into a 4-2 victory. The veteran power forward has lit the lamp in a season-high three consecutive games, totaling five goals over that span. Lucic has done more than half of his damage with the extra man, with 12 of his 23 goals and 25 of his 48 points coming on the power play.

Lucic dished out a power-play helper and an even strength helper in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

Lucic has gotten at least one point in six of his past seven games, with three goals and four assists over that span. This effort put the power forward over 40 points for the seventh time in 10 seasons, although he still sits at minus-7 after finishing with a positive rating in each of the previous six seasons. That dip in even strength production has been compensated for by increased scoring with the extra man, as Lucic has a career-high 19 power-play points after failing to top 14 in any of his previous nine campaigns.

Lucic had an assist, a minus-1 rating and a team-leading six shots in Saturday's win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

Lucic has struggled to put up points in 2017, so the three-game point streak he's on is a welcome change. At one point in mid-February, Looch had just one goal over a 23-game stretch. Now, he has three goals in his last seven contests.

Lucic scored again Tuesday in Edmonton's win over the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

After he couldn't buy a point in 2017, he's starting to find the scoresheet again. He has goals in back-to-back games and has put together three goals and two assists over the last eight contests. It's just a start, but it's a big step forward from earlier in the month when you absolutely wanted to steer clear of Lucic.

Lucic grabbed an assist and a pair of shots in Wednesday's win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Though he snapped his 11-game goal drought recently, he's still not producing at the rate he was expected to. In 2017, Lucic has only two goals and five assists through 23 contests. It's grim.

Lucic scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over Chicago. The goal was his first in 11 games.

EDGE Analysis

Perhaps worse, Looch has just two goals in his last 24 games. Yes, you read that right. The 28-year-old power forward was supposed to bring power and protection to young Connor McDavid, but Lucic has been skating with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins instead. He's on pace for 44 points.

Lucic was held without a point or even a shot in Saturday's loss to Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Lucic has no points in his last four games and just one goal in his last 21 games. Particularly when he's away from Connor McDavid, Lucic has not provided much value. If Lucic isn't on that McDavid line, he's proven hard to trust.
