Ottawa Sens 05/06:
-By Dec 5 they were 21-4(68W pace)
-By Dec 11(today) on pace 63W
-By Dec 22 they were 23-6-3(58W pace)..So in the 7 games after a huge streak they went 2-2-3.

By Jan 19 they were..31-10-4(56W pace). Good record, but nothing totally spectactular.

By the end of the season they finished with a record of 52-21-9 = 113pts..Detroit won the Presidents Trophy with a record of 58-14-8 = 124pts.

Note: Heatley started that season his new team (the Sens) on a huge high note! 22game point streak wher he accumulated 17G-21A-38pts.. Sens fans must of been going crazy!

On Dec 11 (today) the Sharks are 22-3-2, a 66.8W pace and an overall record of:

67-9-6 =140pts.. A ridiculous regular season record..Would break the regular season win record (62W Red Wings 95-96) by 5wins and the regular season point record (132pts Canadiens 76-77) by 8pts.
