Dobber checks in every Thursday to force-feed you the latest fantasy hockey trends. The founder of DobberHockey.com and a columnist for The Hockey News website , he long ago immersed himself into this rollercoaster world and is unable to escape. The Washington Capitals are 9-0-1 in their last 10 games and are the hottest team in the NHL. There isn't any mystery as to the catalyst - Alexander Ovechkin. His line, be it on the power play or at even strength, has combined for 33 points in the last two weeks. Meanwhile, the Chicago Blackhawks are 8-1-1, but they have such scoring depth that none of their lines crack the Top 20. Everybody's contributing. Here is a snippet of the top scoring lines since the trade deadline (not including Wednesday night), courtesy of Frozen Pool . Line combos with four players indicate a power-play unit. Studs... These fellas are wielding a hot stick. Take that into consideration when you go after them in trade talks... Claude Giroux, Philadelphia Flyers (27-10-24-34, even, 10 PIM, 85 SOG) – Giroux and the Flyers took 16 games to get warmed up. Since then, the team has gone 13-11-3, which is a pace that gets them into the dance. So yeah, everything's back to normal now. Giroux's a 90-point player and the Flyers are a playoff team. Too bad it happened too late. Bryan Little, Winnipeg Jets (4-1-6-7, plus-4, 0 PIM, 7 SOG) – This is why we love poking our eyes with a stick fantasy hockey. When a player can go six games without a point and post a minus-8…and get dropped by most owners, only to turn it around with a four-game run like this one. Brenden Morrow, Pittsburgh Penguins (4-5-3-8, plus-6, 11 PIM, 9 SOG, 2 PPPts) – Morrow has six points with Sidney Crosby, James Neal and Evgeni Malkin out of the lineup. Without looking it up, I can safely say that those three gobbled up a combined 3000+ minutes of PP time per game. Now that time is available for players such as Morrow.
