Senators at the Twenty Game Mark

The Sens have reached the twenty game mark so here’s a look at how they’ve done over the past ten games (for the previous ten-game segment go here link).  Ottawa went 5-4-1, earning 11 points (virtually the same clip as the previous ten, 5-5-0).  They are (still) 3rd in the division, 8th in the conference (up from 9th), and 16th in the overall standings (up from 19th).  They are 3rd in goals for (up from 5th), 30th (still) in goals against, 3rd in powerplay percentage (down from 2nd), 24th on the penalty kill (up from 29th).  They are 26th in 5-on-5 goals for/against ratio (0.74), up from 30th; they remain 16th in the league in facoffs; they are 15th in shots allowed (up from 21st) and 16th in shots-for (down from 14th).

Here’s a quick snapshot of player’s stats over the last ten games, although with TOI and faceoffs I’ve simply indicated if the numbers have changed significantly (INJ=games missed due to injury, SCR=scratched):
Erik Karlsson 10-0-8-8 +4 TOI 25:11 (TOI up by 0:30)
Milan Michalek 10-6-1-7 -1 TOI 19:25 (TOI down by 0:28)
Nick Foligno 10-4-3-7 -4 TOI 15:26 (TOI down by 0:39)
Jason Spezza 10-1-5-6 Even TOI 19:33 FO% 56.6 (FO improved)
Sergei Gonchar 10-2-4-6 Even TOI 21:23 (TOI up by 1:52)
Zack Smith 10-2-4-6 +3 TOI 14:36 FO% 50.2 (TOI up by 1:15; FO declining)
Chris Neil 6-2-3-5 Even TOI 13:54 INJ 4
Bobby Butler 9-2-3-5 +3 TOI 11:18 SCR 1 (TOI up 1:31)
Filip Kuba
10-0-5-5 +6 TOI 22:42 (TOI up by 0:40)
Colin Greening
10-2-1-3 -2 TOI 17:02 (1702 TOI up by 0:23)
Jesse Winchester 10-1-2-3 +3 TOI 10:32 FO% 55.7 (TOI up by 3:15)
Stephane Da Costa 10-1-2-3 -4 TOI 12:31 FO% 36.6 (TOI up by 0:56; faceoffs down)
Kaspars Daugavins
9-2-1-3 -1 TOI 15:07 INJ 1
Erik Condra
10-1-1-2 +3 TOI 13:48 (TOI up by 0:59)
Chris Phillips 10-0-2-2 Even TOI 19:30 (TOI down by 0:54)
Daniel Alfredsson
5-1-0-1 -1 TOI 17:42 INJ 5 (TOI down by 0:49)
David Rundblad 5-0-1-1 -6 TOI 16:51 SCR 5
Jared Cowen 10-1-0-1 -1 TOI 16:22 (TOI down by 0:20)
Zenon Konopka 7-1-0-1 +3 TOI 7:09 FO% 58.7 SCR 3 (FO increasing)
Brian Lee
5-0-0-0 -1 TOI 16:08 SCR 5 (TOI down by 2:11)
Nikita Filatov
4-0-0-0 Even TOI 9:10 (TOI down by 4:22) (sent to Binghamton)
Peter Regin
INJ 10
Craig Anderson 9-4-5 3.25 .895 (pulled once) GAA and SV have improved
Robin Lehner 1-1-0 2.00 .920  (sent to Binghamton)
Alex Auld 0-0-0 4.23 .823 (pulled once) INJ 3 GAA improved, SV declined

A few things stand out: despite exploding offensively Nick Foligno is tied with Stephane Da Costa for the worst plus/minus among forwards (David Rundblad is on the bottom at -6); Filip Kuba leads the team in plus/minus; the team has shown no faith in Alex Auld, as he’s received no starts (his only appearance was in relief); Daniel Alfredsson has struggled to produce upon returning from his concussion; Kaspars Daugavins has played a ton since being recalled (he’s 6th among forwards in ice time).
