Lauri Korpikoski scored a pair of goals in Sunday's 3-2 come from behind win in Montreal.
Korpikoski cut the Montreal lead to 2-1 after he deflected a point shot behind Habs' goaltender Dustin Tokarski. His second goal was a little lucky as he beat Tokarski with a shot that went off Montreal defenseman Alexei Emelin. The 28-year-old had just four goals coming into this game, and he had scored just once in his previous 15 games. He has 17 points in 46 contests this season. He has no fantasy upside going forward.

Lauri Korpikoski (lower body) could be ready for Saturday's game versus Anaheim.
