Karlsson assisted on both Ottawa goals -- one on the power play -- but went minus-2 in Thursday's 7-2 annihilation at the hands of the Oilers. Even when the Sens put up a clunker, there's Karlsson, still getting his. He just keeps on maintaining that point-per-game pace, and there's no reason to think anything will slow him down.
Karlsson racked up two helpers and five shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Devils. Though he hasn't scored a goal since Dec. 20, Karlsson's been doing everything he can to generate offense. The Swedish defenseman is riding a three-game point streak and has now hit the 40-assist mark for the fourth time in his NHL career. Karlsson is one of the reasons that the Senators average nearly three goals a game, and with at least three shots in three of his last five games, expect him to break out of his scoring funk soon.
Karlsson provided an assist in Monday's win over the Sharks. The helper came on the power play, but Karlsson also sported an unsightly minus-3 rating for the contest. Nevertheless, the defenseman continues to tick along at an extraordinary pace with 47 points in 46 contests, as he's on pace to eclipse the 70-point mark for the third time in his career.
Karlsson picked up an assist and a couple penalty minutes in Thursday's loss to the Panthers. The assists just keep on piling up for the NHL's top blueliner -- he hasn't scored a goal since Dec. 20, but has tallied six assists in the seven games since. No defenseman has broken 80 points since Nicklas Lidstrom posted exactly that many in 2005-06, but Karlsson's in position to do just that. That's quite the achievement in this era of reduced offense.
Karlsson grabbed a pair of assists Tuesday, helping Ottawa get the win over Boston. Karlsson is riding a six game point steak, tallying three goals and five assists. The defenseman registered over 65 points in each of his last two seasons and is on pace to do so again, recording 40 points in 36 games this season. The 25-year-old will have plenty of opportunities to score as he leads the team in ice time, averaging 28:03 per game
