Mikhail Grabovski scored a goal in a 4-1 victory against the Rangers Tuesday night.
Grabovski was playing on a line with John Tavares because Kyle Okposo was unavailable. Okposo is expected to miss the next two months, so Grabovski could end up staying on the top line for the better part of the remaining season. With that in mind, he's not a bad player to gamble on in standard leagues despite his lackluster performance so far in 2014-15. Jan 28 - 11:05 AM
