Matt Niskanen picked up his third goal of season during Sunday's 3-2 win over the Flyers.
Aside from his 10-goal season in 2013-14, Niskanen is on pace to match his average goals per season. He's now up to 23 points in 51 games this season. Not quite what Washington is paying for, but nearly half a point a game from the blue line isn't bad either. Feb 7 - 6:00 PM
