Holden scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Kraken. Holden's long-range shot beat Chris Driedger at 3:15 of the second period, giving the Senators their only lead in the game. The tally ended Holden's 27-game goal drought, a span in which he mustered six assists. The 34-year-old blueliner has had to take on more responsibility since Thomas Chabot (hand) was ruled out for the year. Holden has five goals, 18 points, 71 shots on net, 111 hits, 107 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in 70 appearances.
Holden picked up two assists Thursday in a 3-1 win over Buffalo. Holden won't overwhelm with his totals, but he's quietly put up six points (two goals, four assists) in his last eight contests. It's a nice little run, but we don't think it's sustainable.
Holden dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Carolina. Holden added five blocked shots to his ledger, contributing on both ends in the upset win. The veteran blueliner has two goals and two assists during a surprising three-game point streak, but don't expect Holden to keep this pace up much longer -- his four points in this stretch match his total from his first 33 games this season.
Holden scored a goal, blocked three shots, added two hits and went plus-2 in Monday's 4-1 win over the Devils. Holden put the Senators ahead at 7:54 of the second period, and they never looked back. It was the defenseman's second goal in as many games after he scored just once in the first 33 contests of the season. The 34-year-old's at six points, 38 shots on net, 61 hits, 47 blocks and a minus-3 rating in 35 outings overall. While the sudden uptick in offense is encouraging, Holden is unlikely to keep the surge going much longer as a more defensive presence in the lineup.
