Tyler Johnson's status is "up in the air" for Friday's tilt with Minnesota, according to coach Jon Cooper.

Tyler Johnson has been on a bit of a roll as of late.

Johnson has points in five of his last six games and seven points in his last six games. Of his hot streak Johnson had the following to say: "I wouldn't say (I'm doing) anything different. I'm getting some opportunities and they're going in for us right now. I'm trying to help the team out any way I possibly can." Johnson is tied for second in team goal scoring with 16 and is third in overall scoring with 33 points. We would ride Johnson while he is hot.

Tyler Johnson had two assists in a 4-3 loss to Boston on Tuesday night.

Someone forgot to tell Tyler Johnson that lightning is not supposed to strike the same place twice because he scored two goals in 30 seconds as the Bolts beat the Blackhawks 5-2 Tuesday.

Johnson sunk his first puck at the 6:14 mark for what became the game winner. He put up the first insurance goal only 30 seconds later. This was the third time this season Johnson scored two goals in a game. Those contests evenly spread across November, December, and now January. It is a little difficult for players to count on his momentum, however.
