Justin Williams has eight points in his last nine games.

He set up Anze Kopitar in the first overtime for the winner and is looking to have his name inscribed on the Stanley Cup for the second time as he was a member of the winning Carolina Hurricanes in 2006. Williams is the quiet member of the first line as Anze Kopitar is the offensive star of the team and Dustin Brown is well-known around the NHL for his feisty style of play. "He goes unnoticed," Brown said. "He kind of likes it that way. I think it also helps him on the ice. Kopi draws the most attention of anybody on our team." Williams is a solid late round pick in deeper pools during the regular season.

Nikita Kucherov scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 2-1 OT win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Tonight, Kucherov picked up the primary assist on Ondrej Palat's game-tying goal in the third period before scoring the game-winner at the 3:28 mark of overtime. The Russian sniper has 38 goals and 40 assists in 67 games this season. He continues to be one of the best players in the NHL.
