He was even playing the point on the power play in the third period, per @EliteScouting on Twitter. Former third rounder Anthony Duclair (NYR) had a hat trick in the game to hit 40 goals for the season. The Rangers signed him earlier this season.

Blujus hasn’t been the most consistent scorer in the last two seasons, but he’s currently on a streak of seven points in eight games. He’s also plus-14 over the last seven games of that streak, which has enabled him to get back to an even rating for the season. He is due a contract this spring or he goes back into the draft.
