Jakob Silfverberg collected two assists in Game 5 to help give Anaheim get a 5-4 overtime victory over Chicago.
He caught the Blackhawks on a line change in overtime to send Ryan Kesler and Matt Beleskey on an odd-man rush and they came up with the game winner. Earlier in the match, Silfverberg directed a shot toward the goal, which went off Kesler and into the net. He has amassed 12 assists and 16 points in 14 playoff contests this year. May 26 - 10:13 AM

Not a huge surprise, but note that the Anaheim Ducks are sticking with their same lines as they face the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 4 on Saturday.

You can stick with lines that work (or avoid ones that don't work) in daily fantasy and other formats.

Jakob Silfverberg produced a goal and an assist in Anaheim's 4-1 win over Chicago in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final.

He picked up an assist on the opening goal of the contest when defenseman Hampus Lindholm scored. Silfverberg's fourth marker of the postseason was deposited into an empty net to help the Ducks secure a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. The 24-year-old winger is tied for second in the playoffs in scoring with 13 points in 10 matches.

Jakob Silfverberg is perhaps the most surprising name on the NHL's top-10 scoring list for the playoffs.

Silfverberg has three goals and 11 points in nine postseason contests. That's quite the step up from posting 39 points in 81 regular season contests. "He's been a difference-maker in all the games," Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We knew he was capable, but he's gotten hot at the right time and that's great." The Ducks just have to hope he can keep it up against the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final.

Jakob Silfverberg recorded a pair of assists in Game 5's overtime win against Calgary.

Both of his helpers came on the power play on goals by Ryan Kesler and Matt Beleskey. Silfverberg posted four shots in the match and he logged 22:03 of ice time. He has three goals and 11 points in nine postseason games.
May 11 - 10:06 AM

Jakob Silfverberg has been a scoring machine in the post-season with three goals and nine points in eight games.

This is the Silfverberg the Ducks thought they were going to get almost two years ago when they sent Bobby Ryan to the Senators as Ottawa also gave them Stefan Noesen and a first round pick who turned into Nick Ritchie. But 23 points in 52 games last season and 13 goals and 39 points in 81 games this year did not put fear into the opponents like this post-season has done. Look for the 24-year-old to take his game to the next level in 2015-16.
May 9 - 5:53 AM

Jakob Silfverberg opened the scoring in Friday's Game Four with a power play goal as he beat Karri Ramo over the shoulder short-side just 3:58 into the game.

The goal was Silfverberg's third of the postseason, and his ninth point in eight games. Later in the third period, off a similar shot to his goal, Matt Beleskey was able to tap home the eventual winner on the power play as well. Silfverberg also contributed a block and two takeaways along with his five shots in 19:14 of work.
May 9 - 1:19 AM

Jakob Silfverberg feels the Ducks lost on Tuesday in part because they got too passive.

"We had the lead and I think we tried to defend too much and they just caught up with us," Silfverberg said. "If you try not to get scored on you eventually will get scored on. We've got to get back to that forecheck and work hard and try and score goals instead of this backing off and letting them come to us. Play a little bit more aggressive and I think we'll be fine." The Ducks led 2-1 and 3-2 in Tuesay's contest against Calgary, but Johnny Gaudreau scored with 20 seconds left in the third to tie it for the Flames and then Calgary won it in overtime. Anaheim still has a 2-1 series lead over Calgary in the second round.
May 8 - 9:37 AM

Jakob Silfverberg clicked with Ryan Kesler during Anaheim's first-round series against Winnipeg.

"He's just a smart player," said Kesler after Game 3. "We read off each other well, and last night we found each other. I think the last couple of games we've been playing well together, and hopefully it sticks." Kesler scored a pair of goals on Wednesday to help the Ducks close out the series and Silfverberg set up the second one. He registered two goals and four assists in the series
Apr 23 - 5:26 PM

Jakob Silfverberg recorded his third career three-point game, and first in the playoffs, with a goal and two assists in Monday night's 5-4 overtime victory over the Jets.

Silfverberg traded game-tying goals and primary assists with Ryan Kesler in the second and third periods, plus added an assist on Cam Fowler's buzzer beater in the first to tie it at one. All in all, it was a great game for the young forward who now has six goals and 10 points in 28 career playoff games.
Apr 21 - 1:27 AM

Jakob Silfverberg netted the game-winning goal in a 2-1 triumph against the Jets on Saturday night in Game 2 of their first-round series.

Silfverberg scored with 21 seconds remaining in the game after getting away with a bit of a hold on Bryan Little's stick. Silfverberg had 13 goals and 39 points during the regular season. Patrick Maroon potted the other goal at 10:43 of the third period on the power play to begin the third-period rally. The Ducks head to Winnipeg with a 2-0 series advantage.
Apr 19 - 1:41 AM

Jakob Silfverberg has picked up his scoring pace in the second half of the season.

Silfverberg had only four goals and 16 points in the Ducks first 44 games but has eight goals and 22 points in the 35 games since then. "I think throughout the year I’ve been playing pretty solid," Silfverberg said. "Just maybe didn’t show up as much on the scoresheet in the first half of the season. Lately, I’ve been getting a few more bounces. I think I’m playing with a little more confidence in the offensive part of the game." Take Silfverberg fairly early in playoff pools if you think the Ducks are going deep into the post-season.
Apr 5 - 4:46 AM

Jakob Silfverberg picked up three assists in Anaheim's 5-1 blowout of Edmonton on Wednesday.

Silverberg snapped a six-game pointless streak with the three night helper. The 24 year-old has 12 goals and 26 assists for 38 points in 78 games for the Ducks this season. Andrew Cogliano and Francois Beauchemin each added a goal and an assist while Corey Perry picked up his team leading 33rd goal of the year in the Ducks blowout win.
Apr 2 - 12:46 AM

Jakob Silfverberg has 15 points in his last 21 games.

Silfverberg has 11 goals and 33 points in 69 games thus far which makes his last quarter of the season look even better as he had only 18 points in his first 48 contests. "I would like to have scored more than 11 goals," Silfverberg said. "I was struggling quite a bit in the first half of the season. Lately, I’ve been a lot of confidence from (coach) Bruce (Boudreau). Been seeing a lot of minutes out there and that’s been helping a lot. Especially putting the puck in helps too. It’s a lot of fun and I feel like as I get the chances, I have a good chance of putting the puck in." Do not forget about him next season as the Ducks did give up Bobby Ryan to get him as part of a package.
Mar 15 - 6:33 AM

Jakob Silfverberg scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 2-1 win over Minnesota.

Silfverberg registered the primary assist on Francois Beauchemin's first period goal to give the Ducks a 1-0. He scored a goal of his own 13:45 mark of the second period to restore Anaheim's lead. That goal proved to be the game-winner in the contest. The 24-year-old has 11 goals and 33 points in 69 games this season.
