      Rangers' Dan Girardi: Grabs assist in win over Leafs

      Girardi registered an assist in Sunday's victory over Toronto. Girardi now has seven of his season total eight points during the team's current nine-game winning streak. The way the 31-year-old is pacing, it's hard not to recommend his fantasy services, but just don't expect it to last.

      Rangers' Dan Girardi: Collects two points in Thursday's win

      Girardi scored an empty-net goal and collected an assist in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Blues. The goal was a gift, as they don't come very often for the defensive-minded blueliner, though Girardi has been productive lately. He has a goal and four assists with a plus-6 rating over his past five games. On top of the two points, Girardi also blocked five shots.

      Rangers' Dan Girardi: Stringing points together

      Girardi collected an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes. The 31-year-old Ontario native now has three points (goal, two assists) of his season total four points in his last five contests. Girardi is beginning to make a case for consideration in deeper standard formats. Then again, outside of shots blocked, he's rather streaky, especially with shots on goal, so perhaps a suggestive gaze from a short distance will do for now.

      Rangers' Dan Girardi: Gets game-winner in win over Flames

      Girardi scored his first goal of the season in a 4-1 win over Calgary. The eventual game-winner, it's Girardi's first point in seven games. Either way, it's nothing for fantasy owners to get excited about as the former 31-point scorer is more known for his talents as a stay-at-home defenseman these days. Although it's possible to see him eclipse the 20-point mark again, he won't likely fill any other categories but blocked shots and that's simply not enough punch for standard fantasy owners.
