Archibald tallied a goal and two hits in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers. Archibald got a turn on Connor McDavid's wing, and the latter set up the former for a goal just 45 seconds into the contest. That would be Archibald's only point in four games in the series -- he added 17 hits and five shots. The 27-year-old winger is better suited to a bottom-six role as a physical presence, but he chipped in with 21 points in 62 contests during the regular season.
Archibald posted an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets. Archibald set up Riley Sheahan's empty-net tally to close out the win. The 27-year-old winger has notched four points through four games in March. For the season, Archibald has 21 points, 63 shots on goal and 160 hits through 60 outings. He's not likely to keep up his recent run of success for much longer.
Archibald scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Chicago. Playing the left side on Edmonton's third line with Riley Sheahan and Zack Kassian, Archibald drew the Oilers to within 4-2 with a tap-in goal eight minutes into the third period. It was his 12th goal of the year, matching the 12 he scored last season for Arizona. The 27-year-old has been a versatile role player in his first year as an Oiler, moving throughout the lineup as needed.
Archibald scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's 8-3 win over the Predators. Archibald skated with Tyler Ennis and Connor McDavid in the contest. It's been a productive spot for Archibald, who can typically produce when he gets top-line duties. The 27-year-old right wing has 11 goals, 19 points, 156 hits and 60 shots through 57 contests. Archibald can be useful in DFS when he's deployed on a scoring line, and the added physicality is a bonus.
Archibald scored an empty-net goal and added two PIM in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Kings. Archibald reached double-digits in goals for the second straight year with his tally Sunday. He's at 17 points, 57 shots and 147 hits through 53 contests this season. He's likely to stay on the third line until some of the Oilers' depth forwards return from injury -- Archibald has typically worked as a fourth-liner in hi career.
