Burakovsky netted a goal on five shots in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Stars. Despite failing to record a point in his last outing, Burakovsky has recorded a point in nine of his last 10 games. In that span, he's racked up seven goals and four assists with a plus-4 rating. The 21-year-old winger has already tallied a career high for both goals and assists. With him being on such a roll lately, he remains a top choice on a nightly basis.
Burakovsky tallied an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 victory over Nashville. Burakovsky now has points in eight straight games, easily the longest streak of his young career. The second line for the Caps is producing at a high level, allowing the 20-year-old to excel, especially as of late. Continue to ride the winger while he's hot.
Burakovsky tallied an assist in Saturday's 3-2 OT win over the Devils. Burakovsky assisted on Justin Williams' goal in the first period, and has amassed nine goals and 21 points in 46 games this season -- although he has 12 of those points in his last nine games. Showing improved confidence and solid chemistry with Williams and Evgeny Kuznetsov on a potent second line, the 23rd overall pick for the 2013 Draft is worth adding in all formats if available.
Burakovsky scored another goal Thursday in a win over the Isles, pushing his goal streak to four games and his point streak to five. Alex Ovechkin's return to the lineup didn't result in a major demotion for his fellow Russian, who skated a season-high 18:20 on Tuesday and a still-strong 16:19 in this one. The Caps' 2013 first-round pick (No. 23 overall) has really started coming into his own, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him cling to a top-six role; after all, he doesn't exactly have the stiffest of competition for that second-line left wing job.
Burakovsky sniped one short side past the netminder in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Florida. Burakovsky is on fire, as he's registered 10 points in his last seven outings. In January alone, the young winger has four multi-point games, which is more than the other three-months of the season combined. During his hot streak, Burkovsky has been capitalizing on his chances while averaging just over 12 minutes of ice time per game.
