Team Records: Ducks 3-1-0, Senators 1-1-2, Ducks 2011-12 Record vs Ottawa 1-0-0 (A 2-1 win by the Ducks in January 2012)
Team Leaders: Ducks – Jakob Silfverberg & Mathieu Perreault tie for the team lead with 5 points while Silfverberg leads with 4 goals, with Bobby Ryan in the building, it would be a good time to keep up that 82 goal pace. Cam Fowler has overtaken Francois Beauchemin for the TOI/G lead with 22:49 to Beauch's 21:12, but is still the only active player on the roster in the negative on plus-minus.
Sens – Our old pal Bobby Ryan has 4 points and 2 goals to lead the team in both categories. I guess that trade is working out for everybody so far. As expected Erik Karlsson is logging HEAVY minutes on the blueline for Ottawa with 27:25 TOI/G
Sens – US Olympic backup hopeful Craig Anderson figures to start for the Sens with a 1-0-2 record, 2.59 GAA and 9.27 Sv%. Robin Lehner saw his first action of the season last night in San Jose and earned the following stats: 0-1-0, 3.10 GAA, .940 Sv% (that's 47 saves on 50 shots faced, in one game. Great Scott! Watch out for those Sharkies)
Power Play: Ducks – Hard to believe that any of the Ducks' numbers got worse after that game versus the Rangers but 0-for-6 on the PP will do that. They're now in the single digits with a power play percentage of only 6.7 (30th, obviously). Nick Bonino STILL has the only PP goal on the season.
Sens – A respectable, if unspectacular 18.2 PP% (20th), Guess which former Mighty Ducks second overall pick, who never got the PP time that he wanted, has both power play goals for Ottawa on the season (Hint: It's not Paul Kariya)
Penalty Kill: Ducks – 61.5%, Also last in the league. Is this some kind of evil scheme to prove to people that they're good 5-on-5 or what?
Sens – 76.2 PK% (19th) doesn't sound very good unless you consider the Ducks' PK efficiency.
