The Vancouver Canucks have been getting a great performance from their third line on their current road trip.

The line of Brad Richardson, Shawn Matthias and Linden Vey have eight goals, 15 points and are a plus-14 in the first five games of their current seven game road trip. You hope for that kind of production from your first two lines on a road swing so when your third unit plays this well, you cannot complain.

Brad Richardson (upper body) had two assists in Vancouver's 4-2 victory over Calgary on Wednesday.

Richardson dealt with the ailment during training camp but it obviously wasn't enough to hold him out of Vancouver's opener. He's started the season on a high note, but we don't expect him to have much fantasy value in standard leagues. If he ends up with more than 25 points in 2014-15, then it will be regarded as a very good season by his standards.

Brad Richardson (upper body) did some work with conditioning coach Glenn Carnegie prior to Thursday's skate.

Brad Richardson netted the game-winning goal for the Canucks in their 2-1 triumph over the Kings on Saturday night.

Richardson's 11th goal of the season came at 18:37 of the third period, and Vancouver's very thin playoff aspirations are still alive. If the Canucks showed this much desperation more consistently, the playoffs wouldn't be a problem, as they came back with two goals in the third after entering it down 1-0. Alexander Edler, got an assist on Richardson's goal, had the other goal. Daniel and Henrik Sedin and Zack Kassian picked up the other assists.

Brad Richardson got the lone goal for the Canucks in their 5-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday night.

Richardson has four of his 21 points over his last five games. He's never eclipsed 11 goals and 27 points in his career, so he's not worth paying attention to in fantasy leagues. Ryan Stanton and Zack Kassian picked up the helpers.

Brad Richardson missed practice on Saturday because of family reasons.

Richardson is expected to be in the lineup on Sunday for the Heritage Classic. He has eight goals and 17 points in 60 games this season.
