Fantasy Recap: May 27
By CHRIS NICHOLS -- SLAM! Sports
Tampa Bay 4 Calgary 1 (Series tied 1-1)
Brad Richards scored his 6th GWG of the post-season by netting his 9th goal and Tampa has not lost when Richards scores... Vinnie Lecavalier had his 4th multiple-point game of the playoffs and now has 15 points total... Veteran Dave Andreychuk has 12 points in his past 12 games... Dan Boyle put his house fire situation aside to score a goal and he now has 9 points... Speaking of fires, Ruslan Fedotenko is smoking hot and has 7 goals in his past 8 games... Martin St. Louis is riding a five-game point streak and has an awesome 21-point total... Fred Modin only has 2 points in his last 5 games but still has 17 points in 18 games... Nik Khabibulin allowed one goal in a game for only the second time in six games... Interesting stat of the night, regarding groups of four: Darryl Sydor had a point in his first playoff game, and then went four without scoring. He had another point, and then went another four games without one. He then scored in four straight games and has now gone four straight without a point... Robyn Regehr has points in three straight games after his assist Thursday... Ville Nieminen scored in Game Two and now has exactly one goal in each series... Shean Donovan collected his first point since Game Two of the San Jose series... Jarome Iginla had goals in four straight games before getting shut out Thursday... Miikka Kiprusoff gave up a first period goal for the first time in ten games and the Flames are 7-3 during that stretch, stressing the importance of getting a good start in a game.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Fogolin family.
