Marleau netted the game-winning goal Saturday against the Canucks. It was the 22nd goal of the season for Marleau, who continues to get it done against the Canucks. The veteran has scored in back-to-back games and remains a dynamite fantasy threat on one of the top teams in the Western Conference. His 35 points in 61 games are nothing out of the ordinary, but Marleau is a reliable goal-scorer who finds the back of the net consistently. Use him well.
Marleau posted a goal with a plus-1 rating and a blocked shot in Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss against the Bruins. Marleau tied Joe Mullen for 43rd place all-time with his 502nd career goal. He snapped a three-game scoreless skid with the marker. The veteran has been terribly inconsistent this season, but he remains a fantasy must-have for his ability to pick up points in bunches.
Marleau had two assists in Saturday's shootout loss to the Coyotes. His point streak now stands at six games. Marleau was denied in the shootout, but he's now racked up 10 points in his last six outings. The veteran is having another strong season and continues to be dominant with the man advantage. Marleau is just one goal away from his 13th 20-goal season in the last 16 years. You can't beat that kind of reliability in fantasy. Keep him rolling.
Marleau scored the tiebreaking goal in Tuesday's 4-3 win against the Jets. Marleau has five goals over the past two games, all in the third period, and two of the markers have been game-winning tallies. The veteran had no goals and just one assist with a minus-7 in his previous seven outings before Monday's eruption. Perhaps he was pushing a bit with a milestone 500th goal approaching. Tuesday's tally was No. 498 of his career, and suddenly he isn't looking so bothered.
Marleau scored a whopping four goals on six shots in a 5-2 win over the Avalanche on Monday. Well, that's one way to snap a seven-game goal drought. Believe it or not, all four tallies came in the third period, as Marleau ran amok at the expense of the lowly Avs. The 37-year-old was the 12th player in NHL history to pot four in a single frame, and it hadn't been done since way back in 1997 when Mario Lemieux accomplished the same feat. Just like that, Marleau now has a very respectable 16 goals in 48 games, but just eight assists, so owners would love to see him work on his playmaking in the second half.
