Point's season-long breakout continued through the postseason. He delivered 16 points, including seven goals, in 17 games. It was an impressive showing for the sophomore center, who delivered a 32-goal, 66-point regular season. Point's breakout this year was for real and he should be a strong pickup at your 2018 draft.
Point recorded a goal and a power-play assist in Thursday's 4-2, Game 4 win over the Capitals. Point factored into both of his team's first-period tallies, producing his third consecutive outing with a goal and an assist. That recent success has him up 16 points in 14 games this postseason. Those who picked Tampa Bay's second-line center in playoff pools have to be thrilled with the results.
Point scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Capitals in Game 3. It's his fourth multi-point performance this postseason, and Point has been more than living up to his name with six goals and 14 points in 13 games. The 22-year-old will continue to anchor the second line for the Lightning while seeing plenty of time with the man advantage, giving him both a strong floor and an impressive ceiling for nightly production.
Point scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Capitals in Game 2. The Lightning struck twice with the man advantage midway through the first period to take a 2-1 lead, but they weren't able to carry that momentum forward into the final two periods. Point now has an impressive five goals and 12 points in 12 games during his first NHL postseason, but the 22-year-old will need more help from his teammates if Tampa is going to keep its flagging Stanley Cup hopes alive.
Point scored his third goal of the series in Sunday's Game 5 clincher against Boston. Point racked up seven points in five games versus the Bruins, including goals in each of the last two outings. The center is averaging 18:56 of ice time in the playoffs, which includes 2:23 with the man advantage. Looking ahead to the Eastern Conference finals, the Calgary native appears to be firmly cemented in his second-line role and should continue to get plenty of opportunities to find the back of the net.
