Matt Cullen scored a goal and registered an assist for the Predators in Wednesday's 4-0 win over Columbus.

Cullen's role is to provide secondary scoring for the defensive-minded Predators, but he has done much more than that as of late, registering seven points in his last four outings (nine points in his last six games). Since the 2004-05 lockout, Cullen has averaged 0.59 points per game (pro-rated to a 48 point average over 82 games), which does highlight that he does have some offensive flare. You won't get Crosby-like numbers from him, but an expectation of him finishing the season with 45-50 points is probably reasonable. Nick Spaling, Mike Fisher and David Legwand all chipped in with goals in the win.
