A breakout game for the Kings’ top line, continued production from Nick Foligno, lots of lineup news, Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. NFL Jerseys China . HEROES Kings top line – Jeff Carter, Marian Gaborik and Anze Kopitar ignited the comeback against St. Louis, leading to a 6-4 win over the Blues. Carter had a goal and three assists, Gaborik had two goals and an assist, and Kopitar racked up a five-points (1 G, 4 A) game. Even with that game, Carter has all of seven points – one goal – in the past 14 games. Gaborik is on a three-game goal-scoring streak, during which he’s scored five goals; he had four goals in his first 18 games of the season. Kopitar, who is playing almost two minutes less per game this season (a career-low 18:54 per game) had four points (1 G, 3 A) in the previous 13 games before breaking out for his career-best five-point game against St. Louis. Nick Foligno – The Blue Jackets’ winger continued his remarkable start to the season with two goals and an assist in a 5-4 overtime loss to Washington. Foligno is the leading scorer among players slated to be unrestricted free agents next summer. On this list, I’ve also included each player’s on-ice shooting percentage, to indicate which players may be primed for regression.

FANTASY FOCUS Five games tonight, five players to consider for your lineup: Evgeni Nabokov – He has an .893 save percentage and is not Tampa Bay’s best option with Ben Bishop out, but the Lightning are facing the Devils and goals have not come easily in New Jersey. Mika Zibanejad – I’m still pumping these tires. He’s the Senators’ leading scorer in December with nine points (5 G, 4 A) in eight games and, aside from last game, has recently been playing more minutes than earlier in the season. Thomas Hickey – As long as Johnny Boychuk and Travis Hamonic are out, there are more minutes available on the Islanders blueline and Hickey is one of the prime beneficiaries. Mathieu Perreault – After a slow start to the year, Perreault has started to pick up the pace, with seven points (2 G, 5 A) in the past seven games. Cody Eakin – He has a modest 11 point in 27 games this year, with one point in the past six, but Eakin has been moved to the Stars’ first power play unit.

General Manager Sam Presti said the three-time All-Star had knee swelling that would not subside, and the procedure was intended to solve the problem. He said doctors determined that a loose stitch was to blame for the swelling, that Westbrooks lateral meniscus has healed properly and the procedure was successful.Paul Cooke says he stocked his cupboards two weeks ahead of a Hull derby to avoid leaving the house in the build-up. When Hull KR joined Super League in 2007 after gaining promotion from the Championship, Cooke was playing for Hull FC. The Black and Whites won that years first derby between the two before Cooke made a sensational mid-season switch to their bitter rivals following contract issues between him and the Hull board.The move created a stir in the rugby-mad city, adding venom to the second Hull derby which was won by the Robins. Though Cooke says he doesnt regret the move, it made him a targeted man during one of the biggest rivalries in the game. So much so that the 35-year-old would avoid being seen in the city in the week leading up to each derby. It was a difficult week, I wont lie about that, said Cooke. It was a difficult week if I left the house!I got in my car, went to training, and came home from training. I had food and stuff in the house so I didnt have to leave the house too much. I was really fortunate to play in a lot of Hull derbies where I was able to influence the result and stick two fingers up to the people I felt had disrespected me a little bit, including the board members at Hull and supporters. Paul Cooke If I did it would just be a walk to the local shops and risk any abuse that way, but I didnt have to do that too much - I prepared for the derby a couple of weeks in advance with regards to what I had in the cupboards. Both Hull FC and Hull KR have something to play for in Thursdays derby clash. We caught up players and coaches ahead of the big game Growing up in Hull gave Cooke all the motivation he needed to play in the derby, and his club switch gave him even more motivation to win.Im a local boy so playing in those derbies games was really important to me.Certainly after the stick I took it was more important to play well because my life would have been difficult for quite a number of months afterwards had I lost some of those games. So I was really fortunate to win most of them and not take too much stick after them. Facebook live with Paul Cooke Paul Cooke joins us at 6.45pm on Thursday for a Facebook live as we build up to the all-important Hull derby - be sure to tune in! I was really fortunate to play in a lot of Hull derbies where I was able to influence the result and stick two fingers up to the people I felt had disrespected me a little bit, including the board members at Hull and supporters.After playing at the top level for over a decade for the Hull clubs as well as the Wildcats, Cooke says nothing comes close to the Hull derby.I played for Wakefield against Castleford which is probably the most intense game for those two clubs as close rivals, but it in no way compares to the Hull and Hull KR game. Paul Cooke played for Hull FC from 1999 to 2007 Theres no genuine hatred, theres just dislike for each other at every level. China Jerseys. At board level theres a dislike for each other, at fan level and player level.In particular with the supporters there is a massive divide. Mondays are really important after derby days.Cooke joins the Sky Sports pundit team for the broadcast of this Thursdays derby, a game he says each player is lucky to take part in.The ones that are fortunate enough to be picked out there get to influence a Hull derby and go down in history. Theres been many of them and many remembered. Highlights of the Hull derby from Mays Magic Weekend However the man now on Leighs coaching staff warned both sides against letting emotions dictate the way they play the game.Regardless of the intensity of the game it is another game that you have to manage, said Cooke. Even though the levels of expectation and intensity are a little higher its still a game where the players have to remain calm.Certainly the team that sticks to the processes and sticks to what the coaches are asking of them generally win these games. Cooke grew up a fan of Hull KR and moved to the club in 2007 The games arent won by the best side on paper or the form team on paper, theyre won by the team that can execute best on the day and that involves remaining really calm and cool under more pressure than normal games.With two games remaining in the regular season Cooke feels that Hull KR have left too much to do in order to reach the Super 8s this year, especially with the added motivation Hull FC have to claim a repeat last years derby spoils. Head-to-heads Three key battles of the Hull derby I dont think Hull KR will make the Super 8s but I theres a lot riding on it - if they lose this one they are consigned to the Middle 8s.Its almost a year ago to the day that this derby was played last season and Hull FC made the Super 8s while Hull KR were consigned to the Middle 8s because of the result. Hull FC duo Richard Swain (left) and Paul Cooke celebrate after victory over Leeds in the 2005 Challenge Cup Final Hull FC are playing for something a little different this year but the motivation of putting their nearest and dearest at risk of relegation is motivation enough.Paul Cooke joins us for Thursdays broadcast of the Hull derby - tune in to Sky Sports 2 from 7.30pm to watch the action.
