Silver Seven

Even strength scoring - Silver Seven
Jason Spezza leads the Senators with 36 even strength points, but do you know who is second? It's Nick Foligno with 30, two ahead of Erik Karlsson and Daniel Alfredsson. In terms of per 60 minutes of 5-on-5, Foligno is in fact leading the way with 2.41 points per 60 minutes.

The Noon Number: 45.8 - Silver Seven
Last night's win over the Nashville Predators, combined with some relatively positive results in other games (most notably the Toronto Maple Leafs' loss to the Philadelphia Flyers) increased the Sens' chances 5.74 per cent since 24 hours ago.

The noon number: Six - Silver Seven
6 - The number of starts Craig Anderson has made for the Ottawa Senators in the past 18 days, as of today. As your math skills can tell you, that's one start every three days. That pace is hardly the grind alarmist statements like, "Craig Anderson has started 18 consecutive games!" are so eager to imply. For the more visual among you, here is a beautiful feast for your eyeballs:

Magnus Paajarvi - Shawn Horcoff - Ales Hemsky
Taylor Hall - Sam Gagner - Jordan Eberle
Ryan Smyth - Eric Belanger - Ryan Jones
Ben Eager - Anton Lander - Lennart Petrell

Ladislav Smid - Tom Gilbert
Ryan Whitney -Jeff Petry
Andy Sutton - Corey Potter

Nikolai Khabibulin

G55 Oilers at Senators - Lowetide
There are things that can be salvaged from a lost season. Magnus Paajarvi was lost early, worse later and by the time they sent him to the minors everyone (including the kid) thought it was a good idea. If MP can gain some confidence and finish strong, well that’s one fewer question to answer over the summer.
