Byfuglien scored a goal and tallied an assist Saturday in a 3-2 Game 6 loss to St. Louis, ending the Jets' 2018-19 season. Byfuglien came to play Saturday, finishing with a pair of points (one coming shorthanded), but it ultimately wasn't enough to keep the Jets' season alive. The larger-than-life blueliner finishes his playoffs having found the scoresheet eight times in six games.
Byfuglien scored a goal, added an assist, and delivered two hits, a plus-3 rating and three shots on goal in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Blues in Game 3. Byfuglien has been strong for the Jets with five points, seven hits and nine shots through three games in the series. The 34-year-old's combination of physicality and lofty point production makes him attractive to fantasy owners, many of whom would like the Jets to overcome the 2-1 deficit they currently face.
Byfuglien picked up two assists on the man advantage as well as three shots, three hits and two blocked shots in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Blues in Game 2. Byfuglien has three assists in the series so far, as well as six each of shots and hits. He's averaged 25:58 in the two postseason contests. Despite an injury-plagued campaign, Byfuglien is a highly desired fantasy asset, having accumulated 45 points (19 goals, 26 assists) in 62 playoff appearances in his career, including 16 points over 17 outings last spring.
Byfuglien notched an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 defeat to St. Louis. Since returning from an ankle injury, Byfuglien has recorded two helpers and 13 shots, but he's still trying to find the back of the net for the first time since Dec. 20 versus San Jose. Despite the goal drought, the blueliner should continue to eat up big minutes on a game-to-game basis, similar to the 25:30 he logged in Game 1.
Byfuglien (ankle) played 24:24 Saturday against Montreal in his return from injury. He did not record a point. He laid three hits and had three giveaways. The most important part, though, is that he has a few games to get his skates under him in preparation for the postseason. Get Byfuglien back in your lineup if you held onto him this long. This is what you waited for.
