Hey, not a bad week at all. Ottawa split the difference and earned two out of a possible four points this week.
Biggest Gains: Robin Lehner. The Lightning shelled him with 40 shots, but he came out with the win in the shootout - something that has been a weakness of his in the past.
Biggest Losses: Jared Cowen. Didn't see the ice after Tampa tied it up in the third.
|Craig Anderson||Anderson was basically the reason the Sens escaped the second period in Nashville with the lead.|
|Robin Lehner||See biggest gains
|Mark Borowiecki||Exceeded expectations against Nashville... Not so much against the Lightning. Saw way too much of Stamkos to blame him too much though.|
|Cody Ceci||Probably deserves a down arrow for his overall play, he was significantly better when not with Phillips. Won't punish him for his linemate.|
|Jared Cowen||See biggest losses.|
|Eric Gryba||So-so against Nashville. Pylon'd by Tampa Bay.|
|Erik Karlsson||Forgettable game against the Predators, much better against Tampa. They average out this week.|
|Chris Phillips||Made just about everyone he skated with worse.|
|Patrick Wiercioch||Didn't play.|
|Alex Chiasson||Impressed in both games. Solid week for the new guy.|
|Erik Condra||Didn't play.|
|Colin Greening||Didn't play.|
|Mike Hoffman||Looked good, but was heavily protected and couldn't find the score sheet.|
|Curtis Lazar||Not making it past nine games with performances like those. Easy decision if he was AHL eligible.|
|David Legwand||Didn't stand out, good or bad.|
|Clarke MacArthur||Largely invisible this week.|
|Milan Michalek||One of the few players to look good against Tampa, but could have been better in Nashville.|
|Bobby Ryan||Had as many hits as he had shots. Didn't have a lot of hits.|
|Z. Smith||Really didn't do much of anything this week.|
|Mark Stone||Was out for tough minutes and looked good doing it.|
|Kyle Turris||Largely invisible, just like MacArthur.|
|Mika Zibanejad||Uneven this week - great against the Lightning, less than against the Predators.|
