Matt Niskanen had two assists in a 4-3 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets Tuesday night.
Niskanen has two goals and 17 points in 47 contests this season. That's a huge step down from his 46-point showing in 2013-14 and while it's obviously too late to replicate that success, we wouldn't dismiss the possibility of him finishing the 2014-15 campaign on a high note. Jan 28 - 11:40 AM
