Senators News: February 13th; Binghamton 3, St. John’s 6

Daniel Alfredsson talked about the effect of the players fathers being around, “I think everybody wants to show off for their dads, and I don’t think that’s ever going to change. Your old man is your old man. He’s not going to be impressed with too much. You’ve got to make sure you do something extra.”

The Silver Seven‘s Mark Parisi looks back on the Sens week that was including individual performances.  I agree with the bulk of his assessments, with the exceptions of Sergei Gonchar (he was mediocre, not bad), Colin Greening (the same distinction), and Milan Michalek (who was average, not good).

ESPN‘s power rankings are out, with Ottawa 17th

-Binghamton got hammered by St. John’s yesterday, with Mike McKenna allowing all six goals on 38 shots.  Josh Godfrey, Jack Downing, and Derek Grant scored, with Godfrey (a healthy scratch the past three games) leading the way with two points.  Stephane Da Costa was out of the lineup with a minor injury.  Here’s the box score and Joy Lindsay’s game summary.

-Elmira lost 4-2 last night, with Brian Stewart taking the loss and Corey Cowick held off the score sheet (Louie Caporusso did not play).  The signs are not good for Cowick, who has no points in three straight games and is expected to produce more.

-Prospect updates (their position in team scoring is noted in brackets, defence compared to defence; I’ve also indicated if the player’s scoring position has change (with a + for up, – for down, and = for unchanged):
Mark Stone (RW, Brandon, WHL) 51-36-54-90 (1st=)

None of the Swedes have played since last Monday.  I believe Jeff Costello is injured, but haven’t specifically seen a report to confirm it (while his team has played games since last week, he has not).
