Senators' Erik Karlsson: Nudges point streak to four

Karlsson notched a power-play assist and an empty-net goal to seal Tuesday's 7-4 victory against Arizona. He finished plus-3.

That's four straight games with a point and seven total points with a plus-7 rating for Karlsson to open the year -- and yet he's been overshadowed a bit among blueliners by Brent Burns, who's looking even better than last year. It's going to be fun watching those two battle it out for the title of fantasy's top defenseman as the season goes on.
