Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski has points in back-to-back games. He is doing quite a bit of damage with Antoine Vermette killing penalties right now, which is not likely to be sustainable, but he is playing consistently more than 15 minutes per game so he will get his chances even strength too.

Analysis: Lauri Korpikoski needed a few games to get after returning from an upper body injury in mid-December, but he is now really clicking along well.

Coyotes' Korpikoski Scores In Loss

News: Lauri Korpikoski notched his fifth goal of the season Saturday in a 4-3 loss to the Flyers. It was his first goal since returning from IR on December 21.
Analysis: After Lauri Korpikoski recorded 19 and 17 goal seasons in 2010-11 and 2011-12 it looked like he was becoming one of the league's better two-way players, but he dropped off to six goals last year. With five goals in 25 games this year he would be on pace to get back to the mid-teens range, but for his time missed with an upper body injury. He is playing a physical game this year demonstrated by his 63 hits.
