That's all the goals he's scored this season. Coincidence?

Those total minutes of ice are the most he's received in any other game this season other than March 2nd against the Devils, when he played 18:33 and finished the game even, with no points.

He's getting far more icetime with Rolston than Ruff ever gave him this season...When he plays, that is.

The problem is, who should he be playing over? Leino is playing quite well. You're not going to play Gerbe over Vanek or Pominville. The only other winger in the top 6 is Ott. Not playing him over Ott either.
In that Florida game, he probably got more ice time because he produced two 1st period goals (in the first 12 minutes, IIRC). I think that's an important distinction.
