Biggest Gain: Kris Versteeg
It's hard to find gains this week, but Kris Versteeg had a fine week with three assists (one on the powerplay). His six game hitting streak did come to an end against Boston, and he was a minus-one, but his offensive game is still the best on the team.

Biggest Loss: Tomas Fleischmann
In 55 minutes on the ice, Fleischmann scored only one point (an assist) and went minus-five. While his defensive game is improving with four blocked shots and two hits, his shooting percentage dropped again from 13.5 to 12.2.

Goaltenders Trend Notes
Scott Clemmensen

Eight goals allowed on 47 shots for a weekly save percentage of .830 and 4.71 goals against average.
Jose Theodore

http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217737/down.png

Theodore's numbers weren't as bad this week as Clemmensen, but allowing six goals on 36 shots (.833 Sv%) and a weekly GAA of 4.56 is still bad.
Defensemen
Brian Campbell http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217733/up.png Campbell bounced back from his poor week, with two points (an assist and goal). His plus/minus took a beating this week (minus-two), but he had nine blocked shots during the week and is currently on a four game blocked shot streak.
Keaton Ellerby http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Two games this week for Ellerby, and zero points. His game blocked shot streak is still going (he had five in his two games).
Jason Garrison http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217733/up.png Garrison had one lone point during the week (an assist), but he let his defensive to the talking this week. The B-52 Bomber had seven hits (extending his streak to ten games with a hit), and blocked three shots.
Erik Gudbranson http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217733/up.png Could this be a turning point for Gudbranson? The rookie had neutral plus/minus, three hits, and four blocked shots.
Ed Jovanovski http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Zero points, a minus-two, two hits, and one blocked shot for Jovocop.
Dmitry Kulikov
http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Kulikov hasn't scored a point since December 8th. His three blocked shots and four hits are worth noting, but with 63 minutes of ice time last week, he's need to do more.
Mike Weaver
http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Weaver had the worst plus/minus for defensemen this week (minus-three), but still played hard with five hits (four against Boston) and seven blocked shots.
Forwards
Krys Barch http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Zero points and a fight. A very Barch week.
Sean Bergenheim http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217725/cross.png Lower-body injury
Matt Bradley http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Bradley scored an assist in Ottawa and had nine hits during the week. He now has seven consecutive games with a hit.
Evgenii Dadonov http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217757/dash.png Dadonov played two games this week, scoring zero points while recording two hits.

Marcel Goc http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217725/cross.png Upper-body injury
Tim Kennedy http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217737/down.png Zero points and a minus-two week for Kennedy. However, Kennedy is still hitting with seven hits during the week, extending his consecutive games with a hit to ten.
Tomas Kopecky http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217733/up.png Finally a good week for Kopecky, who scored his first goal since December 8th (and fifth of the season). He also had a neutral plus-minus and three hits.
Shawn Matthias http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217733/up.png Another good week in a season full of good weeks for Matthias. Danger scored a powerplay goal and went minus-one with increased ice time (played 55 minutes).
http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217733/up.png Repik scored his first career powerplay goal this week in Ottawa and dished out two hits against Boston.
http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217725/cross.png Had two hits against Phoenix before leaving with an undisclosed injury
Mike Santorelli http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217733/up.png Santorelli scored his first assist since November 15th, and finished the week with a minus-one. He did record three hits to extend his streak to six games and he blocked two shots.
