Biggest Gain: Marcel Goc
Lord Dracula has returned, and has bought offense with him. After missing a month in a half (last game was against Dallas on November 15), Goc scored in every game this week with four points (2G/2A), helping his shooting percentage jump from 8.0% to 12.9%.

Biggest Loss: Tomas Fleischmann
Second time I listed Fleischmann on the biggest losses since premiering Ups & Downs with him as the biggest gain. Flash played 53 minutes, scored zero points, and went minus-three. He continues to lead the team in shots on goal (111), but only had four this week.

Goaltenders Trend Notes
Scott Clemmensen


A .940 weekly save percentage (67 shots against) on 123 minutes on the ice. Nice rebound from last week.

An alright game against the Devils, allowed three goals on 27 shots before injuring his knee.
