Braun posted two shots on net, two PIM and one block in a 2-0 loss to the Bruins on Tuesday. While his shooting percentage is very close to a career high, Braun still only has three goals this season because of a decline in shots on goal. A big reason for that decline is the fact Braun has averaged three fewer minutes per game during his first campaign with the Flyers than last season with the Sharks. Braun has more assists than he had in 2018-19, though, giving him more points overall and a better plus/minus. He has three goals and 19 points with a minus-2 rating and 70 shots in 62 games.
Braun recorded three assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Jets. After missing Thursday's game due to illness, the veteran blueliner returned and posted his second three-helper performance in February. Braun has only three goals and 19 points through 55 games on the season, however, so while his recent production is eye-opening, he's highly unlikely to keep it up.
Braun (illness) will rejoin the lineup for Saturday's game against Winnipeg, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports. Braun missed Thursday's game against Columbus due to an illness, but he'll return to a bottom-four role against the Jets. The former Shark has notched 16 points in 54 games this campaign.
Braun will not play in Thursday's game against the Blue Jackets due to a bout with the flu, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports. After starting the season with just 11 points over his first 48 games played, Braun had hit a bit of a groove with five assists in the last six contests. Unfortunately, he'll need to wait a few nights for a chance to add to those totals Saturday when the Jets stroll into the City of Brotherly Love.
Braun posted three assists, including one on the power play, and a plus-1 rating in a 6-2 victory over the Panthers on Thursday. The three helpers move Braun within one of his assist total from his final season with the Sharks in 2018-19. Braun has been racking up the assists lately, as he has five of them in the last four games. He also has a plus-6 rating during that stretch. Braun has posted three goals and 16 points with a minus-1 rating and 62 shots on net in 52 games this season.
