Ottawa at the Eighty-Game Mark

The Sens are now eighty-games into the season (for the previous ten-game segment go link).  Ottawa went 5-4-1, earning 11 points (a 2 point decrease from their previous ten games).  They are 2nd in their division (unchanged), 7th in the conference (unchanged), and 13th in the overall standings (down from 12th).  They are 4th in goals for (unchanged), 22nd in goals against (up from 26th), 9th in powerplay percentage (down from 6th), 15th on the penalty kill (unchanged).  They remain 10th in 5-on-5 goals for/against ratio (1.06); they are 15th in the league in faceoffs (up from 17th); they are 29th in shots allowed (unchanged) and 9th in shots-for (unchanged).

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):
Daniel Alfredsson 9-5-5-10 +9 TOI 19:00 INJ 1

Matt Gilroy 7-0-0-0 -3 TOI 17:30 SCR 3
Zenon Konopka 2-0-0-0 Even TOI 7:50 FO% 58.9 SCR 8
Peter Regin (injured)
Ben Bishop 1-2-1 2.41 .912 (GAA and SV declined) INJ 4
Craig Anderson 4-2-0 2.83 .914 (GAA and SV improved)

Alfredsson lead the team in goals and Karlsson the team in assists.  Alfredsson also lead the team in plus/minus (with a robust +9), while Chris Neil was at the bottom at -5.  Zenon Konopka and Bobby Butler are essentially out of the lineup, while the return of Jesse Winchester probably spells the end of Rob KlinkhammerMatt Gilroy‘s failure to produce continues.  Ben Bishop‘s numbers came back down to earth prior to his injury.
