Pitlick recorded an assist and three hits in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Flyers.

Pitlick set up Mikael Backlund for an empty-net goal in the third period. The 29-year-old Pitlick has seen a second-line role at even strength, but he doesn't play on the power play, which limits his scoring potential. He has two helpers, 15 hits, six shots on net and a plus-5 rating through six contests. Despite the role, the Minnesota native's playing style is more like a bottom-six winger.
