Admit it, you were worried too:

Jason Robertson extended his point streak last night to 16 games, the second longest in Dallas Stars franchise history. He also leads the NHL in goals scored with 19, 17 of them coming from the streak:

“You think of some elite scorers over the time,” Stars goaltender Scott Wedgewood said. “[Alex] Ovechkin’s power, but he can pick a spot. Some of it is just placement. A lot of the time, it’s what’s available, what’s there, what you don’t see, depth.

“[Robertson is] smart with it. He’s deceptive. He can wait, push and change the angle. He’s got the tools, so he uses them to his advantage.”
