Cogliano scored his team's only goal Wednesday, as San Jose completed a sweep with a 2-1 win in Game 4 of the Western Conference quarterfinals. Cogliano came into the playoffs hot after scoring in three of the Ducks' final four games of the season, but he couldn't sustain his play, waiting until the final period of the year to record a point in the playoffs. Unfortunately for his owners, that's a lot closer to his standard level rather than the way he finished the regular season. He's not going to be taken highly in next year's draft, and given his average of less than a point every two games, that shouldn't be a big surprise.
Cogliano scored a goal and an assist for the second time in three games to help earn a 5-3 win over Dallas. Cogliano has 12 goals all season. Four have come in his past five games for an incredibly surprising hot streak. He's salvaged his season, and now he looks like a great value play in the final game of the year as he tries for his best scoring mark in the past four years.
Cogliano scored a goal on four shots and had an assist in a 4-3 overtime win against the Avalanche on Sunday. The veteran has been playing some good hockey recently, as he has three goals and three assists in his last eight games. However, the 30-year-old only has 10 goals and 32 points on the season. That's about par for the course for the veteran forward. In 12 NHL seasons he's only crossed the 40-point threshold twice.
Cogliano recorded a shorthanded goal in Wednesday's 4-0 road win over the Flames. The Iron Man ripped the puck away from Dougie Hamilton and juked Mike Smith with a stutter step for his eighth goal of the season. Cogliano isn't deployed on the man advantage, but he has scored three times shorthanded to complement a plus-14 rating and 20 even-strength assists through 72 games.
Cogliano has recorded just two assists through his past 14 games. After recording nine points through the first 11 games of the season, Cogliano has just three tallies and 11 helpers over his latest 51 outings. He continues to play an important shut-down role for the Ducks and is averaging 1:53 of shorthanded ice time per contest. However, that clearly hasn't provided many scoring looks.
