Svechnikov recorded an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Rangers in Game 3. Svechnikov set up Teuvo Teravainen for the game-tying goal in the second period. During the three-game sweep, Svechnikov posted three goals, two assists, eight shots and 12 hits. The mix of top-line point production and physicality could make the Russian winger a valuable addition to DFS lineups in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.
Svechnikov scored three goals, one on the power play, in Monday's 4-1 win over the Rangers in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers. It's the first postseason hat trick in franchise history, dating back to the team's days in Hartford. Svechnikov lit the lamp once in each period, with his power-play tally in the second holding up as the eventual game winner. The 20-year-old now has four points through the first two games of the series.
Svechnikov has 24 goals, 61 points and a plus-9 rating in 68 games this season. The Russian winger will turn 20 later this month and has already made drastic improvements at the NHL level. After scoring 37 points in 82 games as a rookie, Svechnikov scored at nearly a point-per-game pace in 2019-20 and could reach the 70-point mark if the NHL resumes the regular season. He's established himself as one of the top young forwards in the league.
Svechnikov notched two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Islanders. He nearly scored the OT winner, but his attempt to swat a deflected puck out of midair rang off the crossbar and fell to Vincent Trochek, who buried it behind Thomas Greiss. Svechnikov snapped a brief three-game point drought with the helpers, and on the season the second-year phenom is up to 24 goals and 60 points through 66 contests.
Svechnikov picked up an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Stars. He chipped in on Sebastian Aho's second-period tally, extending lengthy point streaks for both players. Svechnikov's stands at 11 games, during which he's piled up five goals and 13 points, and the second-year phenom -- still a month away from his 20th birthday -- now has 24 goals and 58 points through 62 contests on the season.
