Fehr, Perreault and Ward aren’t expected to be the most potent offensive line. But the trio has been good.

“[Fehr‘s] got a good shot, he knows how to score,” Ward said. “He’s been around, which is good to have: a guy with some experience that can finish. He had a couple of nice plays, both top-shelf goals. That’s always beneficial for our line if we can kind of contribute offensively.”

There’s just something about playing with Perreault, another guy with something to prove after a long stretch as a healthy scratch, that brings out the best in Fehr. The Winkler, Manitoba, native said he typically plays well with pass-first, left-handed centermen.

“He’s been a shooter, he’s scored some goals in this league before and me and him really have chemistry with Wardo,” Perreault said. “Even in Hershey [and] when I got called up, I played with Fehrsie and it seems to click.”

It’s clicking right now for Fehr, who’s riding a goal-scoring streak into Sunday’s game at the New York Rangers. But forgive a guy who has endured three shoulder surgeries and plenty more ups and downs for not getting too high about a few goals.

“It’s only been two games,” Fehr said. “I’m not going to say it’s consistent right now. But hopefully it’s a sign of things to come.”
