Landeskog compiled 25 goals, 37 helpers and a plus-16 rating in 78 games of the 2017-18 campaign. This was a huge bounce back for Landeskog, who posted just 33 points the previous season. The 25-year-old winger found a home on the top line with Nathan MacKinnon, and he also worked on the power play, notching 17 points in that spot. That top line was crucial in securing a playoff spot after spending the last three seasons in the gutter.
Landeskog helped save his team's season with the game-tying goal just 4:11 away from defeat, helping snag a 2-1 win over Nashville in Game 5 on Friday. Landeskog is now up to four goals and six points this series and has picked up where he left off in the regular season. He's scored in all but one game in this series, and now he gets to go back to Denver, where he's scored in four straight on Pepsi Center ice. The team captain's a great play Sunday.
Landeskog scored a goal and added two assists Monday, helping his side earn a 5-3 win over Nashville. Whether it's the elevation, the fans or the feel of the ice at the Pepsi Center, Landeskog likes playing in Denver. He averaged over a point per game in Denver in the regular season, and it appears he hasn't missed a beat in the playoffs. With how he performs in Colorado, he should be in your lineup in Game 4, and if he gets to play a Game 6, he'd be a smart play in that game as well.
Landeskog dialed in a power-play goal and an assist Saturday in a Game 2 loss to the Predators. Those were Landeskog's first two points of the conference quarterfinals, as the captain struggled in the opener based on a minus-2 rating and three empty shots on goal. The playoff series moves to Colorado, where the Swede put up more points (39) than games played (37) during the regular season.
Landeskog amassed one goal, two assists, and 10 hits in Saturday's 5-2 home win over the Blues to clinch a playoff spot. The captain was relentless in his pursuit of a playoff berth following last season's franchise-worst finish. One of Landeskog's assists took place on the man advantage and he also had a tidy plus-2 rating in the do-or-die affair. He closes out the regular season with swagger, having dialed in 25 goals, 37 assists and a plus-16 rating through 78 games.
