Panik scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Penguins. He initiated a beautiful tic-tac-toe passing sequence less than two minutes into the game that resulted in a Nic Dowd goal, then potted his own late in the first period that held up as the winner. Panik has found the scoresheet in four straight games, and over the last 11 contests he's racked up two goals and nine points. He won't be able to keep that pace up for much longer given his fourth-line assignment, however.
Panik dished out a pair of helpers in Thursday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Rangers. Panik's enjoying a nice little three-game point streak (one goal, three assists), but his offense is likely to dry up soon given the winger's lack of chances. He put just one puck on net in this one and has finished a game with more than two shots only once since Nov. 30.
Panik tallied a goal and added two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Wild. Panik went 13 games without a goal, dating back to Jan. 31. The winger had just four assists, 13 shots and 23 hits in that span. For the year, Panik is up to eight markers, 17 points, 62 shots and 34 PIM through 55 contests. He has a three-year run of reaching the 30-point plateau, but that appears set to end in 2019-20 barring a scoring binge over the last month of the season.
Panik tallied an assist, two shots and two hits during Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Jets. Panik seemed to respond well to being demoted to the fourth line following the arrival of Ilya Kovalchuck at the trade deadline. The 29-year-old Panik has managed two goals and eight points in his last 16 games, but a reduced offensive role could make even that modest production difficult to sustain. The Slovak winger possesses limited fantasy value until he can reclaim a more prominent assignment in the lineup.
Panik managed an assist in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Coyotes. Panik made a solid defensive play and relayed to Travis Boyd, who set up Carl Hagelin for the tally. The helper snapped a four-game point drought for Panik, who now has 14 points and 56 shots in 48 contests this year. He's added 61 hits, 32 PIM and a plus-10 rating in his third-lone role.
