Bolts by the numbers: March 19 edition

Who's hot heading into this week:

1. RYAN MALONE
The Bolts forward has recorded points in all but two of his past nine games (3G, 7A), including a game-winning goal against the Rangers. He has also registered a plus or even rating in each of his past three games.
2. MARTIN ST. LOUIS
St. Louis has recorded points in three of his past five games (1G, 2A). He has earned a plus rating in two of the past three games and also has logged 24 minutes or more in ice time in seven of his past eight games.
3. TEDDY PURCELL
Purcell has recorded seven goals and 28 points in his past 20 games and has been held without a point just four times since Feb. 7. Over that 20-game stretch, Purcell set new career-highs for goals (20), assists (36) and points (56).
4. STEVEN STAMKOS
The NHL’s leading goal scorer became the first NHL player to reach 50 goals this season and has recorded points in all but three of his past 10 games. He heads into Monday’s game against Buffalo with two goals in his past three games and overall has registered 22 points in his past 15 contests.
5. BRETT CONNOLLY
The Bolts’ rookie has notched points in four of his past eight games, recording all assists in that span. After struggling to find playing time, Connolly’s ice time has jumped significantly, as he has now logged over 10 minutes in five straight games.
