David Clarkson has just four goals since February 15 but was able to make an impact on Saturday, setting up Patrik Elias for a tying goal in the second period before grabbing the winner minutes later. Clarkson still has 14 goals and 74 penalty minutes on the season, numbers that could have been better had he not been mired in a massive slump most after a hot start. (Updated 4/20/13).

Patrik Elias scored twice and the New Jersey Devils kept their faint playoff hopes alive by rallying from a two-goal deficit for a 6-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday.
David Clarkson established himself as one of New Jerseys leaders last season while handsomely rewarding those poolies who snagged him on waivers or with one of their last picks. Clarkson finished the season with 30 goals, 46 points and 138 penalty minutes, putting him alongside Philadelphias Scott Hartnell and Anaheims Corey Perry as the only players in the NHL to score 30 goals and accrue 100-plus penalty minutes. Unlike Perry and Hartnell, Clarkson does not have nearly as much value in leagues that do not reward penalty minutes. Do not to overpay for Clarksons numbers from last season, but those in leagues that count penalty minutes will definitely want to have him on their radar come draft day. Expect around 25 goals with a boatload of penalty minutes. (Updated 8/14/12)
