Palat scored a goal, dished an assist and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.

While Blackhawks goalie Collin Delia held the Lightning at bay in the first period, Palat opened the scoring just 2:25 into the second. The Czech winger later assisted on a Stamkos insurance goal in the third. Palat has racked up three points through the first two games of the season, including scoring on both of his shots on net this season. A first-line gig in Tampa's strong offense makes Palat an attractive option for fantasy managers.
