Spurgeon recorded a pair of assists -- including one on the power play -- in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Jets. Thursday saw Spurgeon tally two or more points for the third time in his last five games. Over that span, the 29-year-old has scored two goals, tallied four assists, and posted a plus-4 rating. He trailed only Ryan Suter for the team lead in ice time, finishing with 26:27, but Spurgeon did log the most power-play time with 2:16. History suggests he will have a tough time finding the scoresheet in the Wild's next game, coming Saturday against the Red Wings. In 18 career contests versus Detroit, Spurgeon has not scored a goal and has managed just four assists.
Spurgeon scored two goals Saturday in a 4-3 win over Ottawa. The diminutive defender has put on an offensive show in the last two games. Spurgeon has five points, including three goals, since the calendar turned to 2019. He delivers in spurts, which means he's a better long-term play than trying to time his bursts. Still, Spurgeon is on pace for a possible 40-point season. And that would be a career mark.
Spurgeon collected a goal and two assists to pace the Wild to a 4-3 win over the Maple Leafs on Thursday. More attention is on Spurgeon since Mathew Dumba (pectoral) is facing a long-term absence, but he just now put an end to a seven-game point drought. Spurgeon has five goals and 17 helpers through 39 games, but with only one goal and four apples on the man advantage, he has a little bit of work to do to catch his power-play point total (13) from last season.
Spurgeon recorded two assists and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Panthers. Spurgeon's racked up multi-point efforts in consecutive games, as the Wild have outscored opponents 12-2 over that stretch. After totaling 38 points in 2016-17 and 37 points last season, the diminutive defenseman's on pace for a career-best 50 this season.
Spurgeon scored a power-play goal and assisted on another one in a 7-1 win over the Canadiens on Tuesday. Spurgeon's power-play marker with three seconds remaining in the second period was the 29-year-old's first goal in over a month, with his last breakthrough coming all the way back on Nov. 6. He now has four goals and 17 points in 30 games and continues to provide a steady presence on Minnesota's blue line. It'd be nice if Spurgeon was given more time with the man advantage. In four power-play opportunities, Spurgeon logged just 40 seconds of ice time.
