Analysis: Playing on a line with Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel has its advantages. Rust produced four goals during the series and now has 10 in 28 career playoff games. The second-year forward is certainly worth a look in fantasy postseason leagues as he holds down a top-six role with the potent Penguins.
