Monahan earned his first career hat trick in Saturday afternoon's 5-4 overtime road win over the Flyers.
Flyers goalie Brian Elliott could have nightmares about Monahan's gaudy performance in this one. The savvy pivot notched those goals in the second period and all three took place on the man advantage. Don't look now, but Monahan is averaging a point per game through 19 contests, and he effectively doubled his power-play total thanks to his exploits from this matinee.
Monahan collected a pair of helpers in Thursday's win over the Red Wings.
Monahan has been on fire of late, recording three goals and five assists during a six-game point streak. The 23-year-old thrives on the top line with Johnny Gaudreau and is operating at a point-per-game pace through 16 games. He's a reliable fantasy play whenever the Flames take to the ice.
Monahan produced a goal and an assist -- along with a shootout tally -- in Sunday's 5-4 win over the visiting Devils.
This is how top-line playmakers are supposed to perform. Monahan has scored in three straight games and now has points in his last four. He'll look to stretch his hot streak even further in Tuesday's home battle with the Canucks.
Monahan buried his fifth goal of the season and put seven shots on net in a 4-2 loss to Minnesota on Saturday.
The 23-year-old forward has scored three goals and four points during his active three-game goal streak. Monahan's season-high seven shots on goal is likely correlated to his season-high 19:19 of ice time -- 7:09 of which came on the power play. His 17:06 average ice time is the lowest since his rookie campaign, but if the Ontario native can keep up this level of production (eight points in eight games), increased playing time is sure to follow.
Monahan's power-play goal held up as the game-winner in a 2-0 win against Anaheim on Monday.
The big center's first tally of the campaign also helped the Flames end a 25-game (!) losing streak in Anaheim, so it's one he'll likely never forget. Monahan now has a pair of points and 11 shots on net through three games this season, and though his 15:22 of ice time Monday was over two full minutes less than last year's average, it's far too early to suggest any type of trend.
