Johnson was moved to a line with Steven Stamkos and Vladislav Namestnikov late in last Wednesday's game versus Boston and the combination stayed together versus the Sharks. He has registered 13 points in 26 games this season, but this could be just what he needs to spark him offensively.

Tyler Johnson hasn't scored a goal in 13 straight games.

Johnson's current drought is tied for the worst of his career, which occurred over two seasons from April 11-Oct. 31, 2015. He has earned just 10 points (four goals, six assists) in 23 games this year, but he isn't concerned. "I judge it more on chances," Johnson said. "And right now, as a line, we're getting a lot of chances. They just aren't going in, for whatever reason. That will change. It's just the ebb and flows of the season."
