Auston Matthews scored a power-play goal in the third period of Saturday's 3-2 win against the Ottawa Senators.
Matthews also chipped in with an assist while posting a plus-1 rating and team-high six shots on net with two hits in his 21:50 of ice time across 27 shifts. He also won 10 of his 20 faceoff attempts. His fantasy owners are breathing a sigh of relief, as he has just one helper across the first two games, and he was blanked with a minus-3 rating in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Sens. You know he'll be just fine, and he has the ability to pick up points in bunches. Next up is a home date against the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. Jan 17 12:42 am (EST)
