Neil found twine and added two PIM in Saturday's 6-1 victory over the Bruins. Neil reached the scoresheet in two straight to finish up the season, which is notable due to the fact that the winger had only built a streak once this year coming into Saturday. It was only fitting that the 36-year-old ended up in the box in the last game, as the veteran amassed 165 PIM to date.
Neil registered an assist, a plus-2 rating and three hits in Thursday's 3-1 win over Florida. You know Neil is going to rack up the hits (and PIM on most occasions), but when he reaches the scoresheet, owners must jump for joy. The 36-year-old isn't one to notch points on a regular basis -- he has just four markers and eight apples to date. The hard-nosed winger has one game left to increase his monstrous 163 PIM on the year.
Neil racked up 12 PIM and three hits in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Flyers. Neil might as well set up shop in the box, as the enforcer has notched 163 PIM on the year (don't worry, it's not even close to his career-high 231). The 36-year-old has reached double-digit minutes on six different occasions this season, with the highest total being 24 set back in October against the Red Wings. Needless to say, the veteran is valuable for PIM (and hits), but offers very little in other categories.
Neil found twine, tacking on five PIM and three hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks. Although not surprising, Neil went 17 games in a row without a goal, but he did rack up 34 PIM in that span. Points are rare, but a definite bonus when they come along with his usual of penalty minutes and hits.
Neil (illness) will suit up against the Ducks on Saturday, Steve Lloyd of TSN reports. Neil's return after a two-game absence adds grit and toughness to the Senators lineup. For fantasy owners looking for hits and PIM, the veteran enforcer is your guy. In his previous 10-outings, the winger has registered 30 hits and 24 PIM while averaging under 10 minutes of ice time per contest. In terms of scoring, you will have to look elsewhere as Neil has tallied a meager 10 points on the year.
