    Alzner tallied an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Islanders. Alzner has three assists in his last four games, which is quite a streak for the shutdown defenseman. His two goals and 12 points in 40 games have him on pace for a career year, although his ice time will likely go down a tick once John Carlson (lower body) and Brooks Orpik (lower body) return from their respective injuries. Alzner remains a reach even in deeper leagues despite the recent performance.
