Van Riemsdyk picked up a goal and an assist with four shots in a 3-0 win over Buffalo. Van Riemsdyk set up Sean Couturier's goal that opened the scoring 22 seconds into the middle frame, then he sealed the victory with a tally of his own almost exactly 15 minutes later. Van Riemsdyk has been a force all season long, topping the Flyers in points (25), goals (10), assists (15), plus/minus (plus-8), power-play goals (seven) and power-play points (eight). The 31-year-old is tied for seventh in the NHL scoring race heading into Tuesday's clash with the Penguins.
Van Riemsdyk scored his league-leading seventh power-play goal of the year in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Rangers. Van Riemsdyk deposited a backdoor tap-in 4:05 into the second period to give the Flyers a 3-1 lead. It was van Riemsdyk's team-leading ninth goal of the season and tied him for the NHL lead in power-play tallies. The 31-year-old is having a terrific campaign, pacing the Flyers in goals, points (22) and assists (13) after 16 games. He's reached the scoresheet in nine of his last 10 games and has goals in four of his last five.
Van Riemsdyk scored a power-play goal and added two assists in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Bruins. While van Riemsdyk was solid in the game, the Flyers as a team weren't able to keep up with the Bruins. In 15 games this year, van Riemsdyk has eight goals, 21 points, 33 shots on net and a plus-5 rating. He's already over halfway to his 40-point output from 66 appearances last season. Shooting 24.2 percent so far has helped the 31-year-old in a bounce-back campaign, but he shouldn't be expected to maintain this pace all season.
Van Riemsdyk and the Flyers won't face off with the Devils on Thursday or Saturday after the league postponed the games, per the NHL release Monday. Van Riemsdyk will still get to take his seven-game point streak into Washington on Tuesday, but then will get some time to rest up ahead of Sunday's clash with the Rangers. The winger currently leads the team in points (18) and should continue to provide top-end fantasy value.
Van Riemsdyk scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Capitals. The veteran winger is having arguably the best run of his career as the greybeard on a line with Scott Laughton and Joel Farabee. JVR has found the scoresheet in seven straight games, piling up four goals and 13 points over that stretch, and on the season he already has seven goals and 18 points through 13 games. He's never scored more than 62 points in a full season, so there's no telling how long van Riemsdyk can keep up this frantic pace, but Philly coach Alain Vigneault isn't likely to break up that red-hot trio any time soon.
