With his two goals Saturday afternoon in the Red Wings' 5-1 win over Colorado, Tomas Tatar hit the 20-goal mark for the third season in a row.

There is something to be said for consistency. Tatar is no star, but at least you know what you're getting when you draft him. Unfortunately, the Red Wings had hoped for more out of the Slovak forward. With the loss of Pavel Datsyuk, the Red Wing brass were thinking Tatar could up his production to 25-30 goals. Unless he finishes with a flurry, that won't happen.

Tomas Tatar leads the Red Wings with 17 goals in 68 games this season.

He has potted five markers in the last 11 contests, while adding two assists during that time. Tatar has been playing fairly well alongside Henrik Zetterberg late in the year.

The Red Wings fired 37 shots on Elliot and were left frustrated all night as he made save after save. They managed to get earn a point from the contest but still set outside of a playoff spot with slim chances of getting in. Tatar leads the Red Wings with 15 goals on the year. Darren Helm also scored for the Red Wings in the OT loss.

Jan 25 - 11:08 PM

It appears that Chicago is considering trading for Tomas Tatar.

The 26-year-old is having the worst season of his career thus far, posting just 22 points in 46 games this season. Tatar carries a mere $2.75M cap hit and is, as is often the case when Chicago picks someone up, an unrestricted free agent at season's end. Take this rumor with a grain of salt, but it would be an interesting deal for both sides.
