Adam Rotter: Brassard's game just seemed to flip "on" against the Sabres when he had 2 goals and 3 assists. In the nine games that followed he has points in 6 of those games and 5 goals and 4 assists. He clicked with JT Miller and Jesper Fast, has been good when put back with Mats Zuccarello and power play goals in the past two games. When he shoots the puck he becomes a different player. 30 goals is not out of the question for him if he keeps shooting.
