Well, that was a pretty great week. Four games, four regulation wins, and now the Senators are top-five in the entire league. Also, the Sens beat two of the teams ahead of them in the Canadiens and the Rangers. Things are looking pretty bright.
Biggest gains: Mark Stone
There were a few candidates for this spot, but five points (including three against Carey Price and the Habs!) puts him up here.
Biggest losses: Andrew Hammond
He refused a conditioning stint in Binghamton, which got him sent there through waivers so he could actually play there. Despite PR Dorion's positivity, you could still tell this move essentially means Condon has passed Hammond on the depth chart. Looks like our burger-throwin' days may be coming to an end.
|Craig Anderson||Can't pin the Florida loss on him, but you can't give an up-arrow to a goalie who put up an .826 once this week |
|Mike Condon ||Can't pin the Preds' loss on him, but it wasn't good either. At least he got Hammond sent to the minors |
|Andrew Hammond||I started singin' "Bye, bye, this here Hamburglar guy..." |
|Mark Borowiecki||He says Boucher's system is the most fun he's ever had playing hockey |
|Cody Ceci||Fine week for Ceci |
| Fredrik Claesson ||No games for Steady Freddie this week |
|Erik Karlsson||Only one point, but my goodness, he's so good |
|Marc Methot||He's exactly what we expect of him |
|Dion Phaneuf ||Fine with his week - would you believe he's second on this team in shots on goal? |
|Chris Wideman ||And Wideman completes a week of neutrals for every defenceman |
| Derick Brassard ||Hey, he got a goal this week! |
| Ryan Dzingel ||Got told he'd be staying with the big club all year, and hey, he also looks to be a mainstay in the top six with all the injuries |
|Mike Hoffman||Sounds like he's nearing a return |
| Chris Kelly ||I need to give someone a down arrow, and Kelly being the worst possession forward on the team this week gets it |
|Clarke MacArthur||Hi Clarke |
|Chris Neil||He's still here, and I still have no issues with it. He's only 10 games from 1000 |
|A goal this week, and it could've been four. He looks like he's finding his offensive chances |
|Matt Puempel||Lost him on waivers to the Rangers. As the kids say, nbd. |
| Tom Pyatt ||When Pyatt's not on the top line, I don't notice him, which I'm more than glad about |
|Bobby Ryan||With Ryan and Hoffman out, the Sens lost most of their goal-scoring threats |
|Zack Smith||I have very little to say about Z. |
|Mark Stone||Two points this week - badly-needed offence for this team's best forward |
|Kyle Turris||And two more points for Turris, pushing him up near the team lead in points |
