Stone scored a goal and added an assist Thursday, but the Senators fell 5-2 to the Canadiens. Stone now has goals in three straight, with Thursday's snipe coming on a short side laser over Carey Price's blocker-side shoulder. It gave Ottawa a one-goal lead midway through the first period, but Montreal would quickly tie the game 20 seconds later. Stone also registered a secondary assist, and the 26-year-old now has 14 goals and 32 points in 29 games this season. Matt Duchene and Bobby Ryan both left Thursday's contest, and it appears both could be long-term injuries. It looks as though Stone will need to carry the offensive load in Ottawa for the foreseeable future.
Stone scored for the second straight game as his team took a 5-2 loss to Montreal on Tuesday. Stone scored 20 points in November alone, and with goals in each of his two December games, he's picked up where he left off and remains a valuable asset. Given his performance and Ottawa's tendency to play high-scoring games, Stone should be active in nearly all leagues.
Stone scored both Ottawa goals in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers. He also filled up the rest of the scoresheet, adding four shots, two blocked shots, two PIM, one hit and a plus-1 rating. While the Sens overall are having a poor campaign so far, Stone is having an excellent November, scoring seven goals and 18 points in 13 games. The 26-year-old has supplied at least 20 goals in four straight seasons, and through 24 games he's already more than halfway to his fifth.

Stone (face) participated in Sunday's skate, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. Stone didn't wear a non-contact jersey, which bodes well for his chances to play Monday against the Rangers. The 26-year-old is dealing with facial swelling after being hit in the face with a puck, but he'll likely be able to tough it out as long as his vision isn't impaired.
