Bolts by the numbers: March 26 edition

Who's hot heading into this week:

1. TOM PYATT
The Bolts forward comes into this week with three goals in two games and has shattered his previous single-season career-high goal total of two, as he now has 11 goals on the season. Pyatt registered his first career multi-goal game on Thursday against Edmonton and has points in six of his past 11 games, notching five goals and eight points in that span.
2. RYAN MALONE
Malone has a goal and three points in his past three games and comes into Monday’s game against the Flyers with points in nine of his past 12 contests overall. He has also earned a plus or even rating in all but two of his past six outings.
3. BRETT CONNOLLY
The Lightning rookie has recorded points in two straight games and in six of his past 11 contests overall. He logged a season-high 18:15 in ice time on Thursday against Edmonton and continues to earn more minutes, as he has now recorded more than 12 minutes per game in seven straight contests.
4. TEDDY PURCELL
Purcell enters Monday with three points in his past two games and at least a point in three of his past six games overall. His plus-2 rating in his team’s last outing on Saturday improved his team-best mark to plus-10 on the season, as he has now registered a plus or even rating in five of his past seven games.
5. MARTIN ST. LOUIS
The Bolts’ veteran winger had two points on Saturday against the Islanders and comes into this week with points in four of his past eight games (1G, 5A). He earned a plus-2 rating in his team’s last outing and ranks second among all NHL forwards in average ice time per game with 22:31.
