Cammalleri notched a goal and an assist accompanied by a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Hurricanes.
Since his last two-point game -- Dec. 3, exactly a month prior -- Cammalleri had been mired in a fantasy-team-destroying slump, netting just two points and a minus-11 rating over 14 contests. A stretch like that is particularly painful when it's preceded by an absurd hot streak, like Cammalleri's 14 points in a span of eight games during November and early December.

Cammalleri missed six games due to a personal matter, but he's been focused and spectacular in a pair of games since returning. He destroyed the Leafs to the tune of four points (one goal, three assists) on Wednesday, and then seemingly gave it his all in the offensive end during this latest contest. At 34 years old, Cammalleri is a can't-miss weapon on a
Cammalleri had three second-period points to help New Jersey draw even after falling behind Toronto 3-0 in the first frame. This showing is even more impressive in light of his six-game absence due to a personal matter. Fantasy owners should expect some game-to-game inconsistency from the 34-year-old veteran, but he's an established scorer who provides plenty of shots on net.
