As debilitating as injuries can be, sometimes they open the door for a lesser-known player to break through. Could that be happening with Phillip Danault?
That remains to be seen, but if nothing else, he’s been on a hot streak lately.
His second goal from Wednesday’s Montreal Canadiens – Winnipeg Jets thing is a thing of pure beauty.
With that, Danault now has five points (two goals, three assists) in his past four games, and he still has time to add to his totals against Winnipeg tonight.
