News: Legwand collected a pair of assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Coyotes.
Impact: Legwand now has seven points (one goal, six assists) in his last seven games, which qualifies as his best stretch of production all season. During that run, he was a healthy scratch for two games, so there's no guarantee he'll maintain a lineup spot despite his ample production. The inconsistency of Legwand's ice time doesn't make him particularly enticing as a fantasy option.
News: Ryan potted a goal and chipped in an assist in Saturday's 7-2 beatdown of the visiting Coyotes. It was his third multi-point effort in a row.
Impact: Ryan has cranked it up recently, putting up 11 points and throwing 24 pucks on net over his last nine games. He was one of six Sens to post a multi-point effort against the lowly Coyotes, bringing his season total to 37 points -- 14 of them goals -- to go with 121 shots on net, a plus-7 rating and 12 PIM. In short, he's been terrific on a very pedestrian Sens squad, and can continue to be safely relied upon by owners in the final 30+ games of the campaign.
News: Stone netted the game-winning goal and chipped in an assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Coyotes.
Impact: Stone's first career game-winner boosted his season goal total to 12 and point total to 28 over 46 games. By doing most of his damage at even strength, Stone has been able to uphold a plus-10 rating, which has already enabled him to deliver a decent amount of value in mid-sized fantasy leagues in his first full NHL season.
News: Zibanejad picked up an assist and provided the final goal of the game in a 7-2 win over the Coyotes on Saturday.
Impact: Zibanejad has found the net in three straight games and has pointed in four straight, attempting 12 shots during that span. The young center has always been lauded for his talent, and it seems like he's really starting to settle in to his destiny as a long-term fixture in the Sens' top six.
News: Karlsson sniped a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 7-2 thrashing of the Coyotes. He also skated to a plus-3 rating.
Impact: Karlsson was one of six (!) Senators to post a multi-point effort in this one, and is now up to 12 goals, 23 assists and a whopping 184 shots on goal this year. Despite the fact that Ottawa is 11 points out of a playoff spot and doesn't have the most prolific offense, Karlsson is still an elite d-man and should be deployed regularly in all leagues.
News: Methot gathered three helpers and two PIM in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Coyotes.
Impact: Methot was largely at fault for the Sens falling into an early 1-0 hole, as he failed to catch a puck in midair that Coyotes defenseman Zbynek Michalek scooped up for the score. However, Methot more than atoned for his error, tying his career high for points in a game while finishing as the leading scorer on the afternoon. The three-assist more than doubled Methot's point production from the other 10 games he's played this season.
News: Lehner stopped 35 of 37 shots to claim a victory over the Coyotes on Saturday.
Impact: Though the final score indicated a blowout, Lehner found himself behind early, as a defensive misplay by teammate Marc Methot allowed the Coyotes' Zbynek Michalek to find the net 40 seconds into the contest. Lehner would build a brick wall around the crease thereafter, with his offense providing plenty of insurance to lead the goalie to his first win since Dec. 13. Lehner has started the Sens' last two games with Craig Anderson (hand) on injured reserve, but Anderson could be ready to go for the team's next game Tuesday in New Jersey after he was able to resume practicing Saturday morning.
