By The Numbers: Panthers 5, Senators 2
Panthers By The Numbers takes a closer look at some of the
interesting stats that you may or may have not known about.

 
Panthers 5, Senators 2

0 – A couple of zero’s came out of the first period of play. Not only did neither team find the back of the net in the first 20 minutes, but neither team was whistled for a penalty. That all changed 27 seconds into the second as Cory Stillman was sent to the box for tripping.

8 – It was even in another category in the first period as each team won eight face-offs. Mike Fisher was perfect at the quick draw, winning all five face-offs while Kamil Kreps won both his draws for the Panthers and Stephen Weiss won 67% of his (4 of 6).

3 – Brett McLean was tied for the least amount of shifts in the first period with five, but he did the most on those shifts, leading the team with three shots on net. The Panthers outshot the Senators 11-8.

5 – Nathan Horton has played with a new purpose since coming back from injury five games ago. Taking the cross-ice feed from Stillman on a two-on-one break, Horton one-timed it past Brian Elliott for his 21st of the season 4:35 into the second period. For Horton, it was his fifth point and second game in a row with a goal since returning from the injury (2-3-5).

10 – The Panthers couldn’t clear the puck midway through the second period and it cost them as Nick Foligno found Chris Kelly in front of the net for the forward’s 10th of the season 12:24 into the second. It was Kelly’s first goal in 10 games.

200 – On a four minute power play thanks to a high sticking penalty on Brendan Bell, the Panthers cashed in as Richard Zednik jammed home the rebound past Elliott for his 17th of the season with 2:42 left in the second. It was a milestone goal for Zednik, as it was the 200th of his career.

7 – Talk about clicking. The Panthers power play unit has been red hot the last five games. On the second penalty of Bell’s four minute high sticking call, Bryan McCabe’s point shot hit a Senator in front and deflected in after Elliott got a piece of it. The goal was McCabe’s 13th of the season, first in 11 games and seventh on the power play. For the Cats power play, it was their seventh goal in the last five games (7 of 18 attempts: 38.8%).

50 – Florida kept the pressure on Ottawa in the beginning of the third period. That pressure created a turnover in the Ottawa zone as David Booth took the puck, turned and shot the puck on net. Weiss, setting a screen, got his stick on the shot and deflected it past Elliott for his 14th of the season, 2:02 into the third. It must be something about the Canadien teams for Weiss as half his goals have come against the six of them (two vs Ottawa, three vs Toronto, and one against Edmonton and Montreal).

20 – Chris Campoli scored with 6:33 left in the game to bring the score to 4-2 Panthers but the Cats added an empty netter, courtesy of Michael Frolik. The Cats rookie recorded his 20th goal of the season with 1:32 left in the game. Frolik became just the third Cats freshman to accomplish that feat (Mark Parrish (24) and Kristian Huselius (23)). Frolik, who became the seventh rookie to score 20 goals this season, recorded his second three point night of the season (1-2-3).

4 – The Cats had nine players grace the scoresheet against Ottawa. Four of them had multi-point games. Frolik led the way with the three points while Booth (two assists), McCabe (goal, assist) and Stillman (two assists) had two points a piece.

17 – Despite the lull in the middle of the month for the Panthers, the win allowed the Cats to tie January for most points in a month with 17. Florida finished 7-2-3 in the month of January and 7-5-3 in March. It was the sixth month in a row the Cats had at least 13 points.
