3/15/12 - Studs & Duds
Can't do the late games but I"ll try to add on in the morning if I've got some time! Feel free to chime in if you'd like!
Senators steal the top spot in the Northeast! - Given the Bruins recent struggles, the Ottawa Senators have managed to sneak into second place in the East. While the Bruins have two games in hand, this is quite the accomplishment for the Sens. Bishop had a very easy night only seeing 14 shots, making 13 saves. Filip Kuba scored the game winner and now has five points in his last five games.
Lookin' Sharp there bud - Patrick Sharp provided the Hawks with a much needed pick me up scoring two goals including the game winner. Sharp added a team high eight shots on goal and now has 28 on the season. Marian Hossa also scored his 28th goal on the year, and Corey Crawford finally had a good start stopping 21/22.
Big Fugly goes Big! - Lost in the shuffle in all the Erik Karlsson hype this season is big Dustin Byfuglien, who scored the game winner and added an assist. Buff now has 46 points in 55 games, which is on pace for 69 points in a full 82.
I completely forgot Adam Pardy was still in the league - But he went a team-worst minus-three in the Stars' 4-1 loss to the Hawks. Lehtonen was less than stellar posting 27 saves in the loss.
Shooting blanks - Alex Semin along with John Carlson, Karl Alzner, and Jason Chimera all went a team-worst minus-two.
Goalies: If I'm pickin em you best be sittin em!
