Ottawa Senators Three Stars of the Week: Week 16

We now return to our regularly-scheduled programming

NHL: St. Louis Blues at Ottawa Senators
Mark Stone is kind of becoming our Frank Boucher of this series

Well the Senators sure crapped the bed there, eh? Returning from their bye week, they faced a St. Louis Blues team on a second half of a back-to-back, and of course lost 4-1 in a game where the score probably flattered the Sens’ effort. They then followed that up by giving up a 3-1 lead to a Maple Leafs team on a four-game losing streak. If you’re on Team Tank, then at least the Sens are managing to fulfill your dreams.

Three Stars

  1. Mark Stone. He had two assists against the Leafs after looking like he was out with a knee injury. Hopefully he isn’t out long-term, so he can continue his MVP-worthy season. Not to save the Sens’ season, that’s far out of the question.
  2. Cody Ceci? He had points in each of the two games, and got more 5v5 time than Erik Karlsson on Saturday. Probably not deserved, but it’s a struggle to find stars this week.
  3. ... Bobby Ryan? He had two points, and didn’t break any fingers. Yay positives!

  • Colin White hit a post, getting him one step closer to his first NHL goal
  • Nobody else

Trending Down

  • Craig Anderson continues to drop his horrific save percentage, with an .879 against the Leafs to follow up a respectable .917 against the Blues
  • I hoped Erik Karlsson would look more comfortable after his return from a week break. He didn’t, really.
  • Gabriel Dumont experienced a lengthy benching after the first period against the Leafs.
  • This team still isn’t practising because “injuries” and “Guy Boucher is out of answers”
