      Capitals' Brooks Laich: Pots first goal in Thursday's win

      Laich scored his first goal of the 2015-16 season during Thursday's 4-1 over the Bruins The puck was deflected off Laich's leg into the net, so it was a "garbage goal" in the traditional sense, but the fourth-line forward won't care how it happened. The tally brings his point total to one in 12 games this season, so he's not enough of an offensive force at this point to warrant fantasy consideration.

The tally gives him a goal and three assists in his last three games. Laich has been productive since being moved the the right wing side of the third line opposite Eric Fehr and Chimera, and while he can't be relied upon to keep a point per game pace for very long, he might be worth a look in deeper leagues as long as he's riding this streak.

      Analysis: Brooks Laich has been enduring a down season almost entirely across the board, but he's increased his production of late as he's now chipped in four assists in the team's last six contests. The 31-year-old's ice time has been consistently decreasing since February as his season average now hovers under 15 minutes per game, so even if he can get on the scoresheet more regularly it may not be enough to warrant attention in most formats.
