THE REGULARS:

By a 60% to 40% margin, Game Time Nation has spoken, and the scoring progress of 2010 first-round selection Jaden Schwartz will be featured weekly in this space.

Schwartz extended a personal streak in CC's 4-1 win at Rensselaer on Friday by assisting on older brother Rylan's GWG late in the second period. The younger Schwartz had either scored or assisted on CC's last nine game-winners extending back to the 2010-11 season. He also added an empty-net goal on Saturday to help the Tigers to a weekend sweep.

As for Tarasenko and Lehtera, the two are neck-and-neck in KHL scoring with 20 points each, good for a fifth-place tie in the league scoring parade. Tarasenko is tied for the leaguie lead with ten goals, and Lehtera's 11 assist are good for a sixth-place tie.
