The beginning of the year was not kind to Erik Karlsson and people were wondering what was wrong.
It took some time for him to get adjusted playing in San Jose and why wouldn’t it? Lets face it, since last year the Ottawa Senators have been a joke in terms of the media and is quite different than the beach life style of San Jose. That was then and this is now.
In the firs two months of the year, Karlsson put up 15 points in 26 games. In his last 16 games Karlsson has put up 23 points. He has put up at least a point in his last 13 games, 22 in total.
It looks like Karlsson has finally found the grove and if I was in the Western Conference, hell if I was in the NHL I would be RATTLED. To make matters worse, it looks like fellow all star Brent Burns is starting to heat up as well. Over the last 5 games Burns and Karlsson have put up 23 points collectively. The blue line in San Jose is HOT as ever and EK65 is of course a big part of it.
