Mark Borowiecki admitted that his team needs to stick to their game plan after they take the lead.

Ottawa scored the first goal in each of their two playoff losses to Montreal and that isn't sitting well with Borowiecki and his teammates. "Any time you get that first one, you want to lock it down," said Borowiecki. "You’re not going to win games 1-0 very often, but you kind of want to give yourself a chance. It’s just a product of us kind of getting away from our game plan." Ottawa trails 2-0 in the best of seven series against Montreal.

Mark Borowiecki scored his first goal of the year in Sunday's 5-4 shootout win over Calgary.

He also posted a plus-2 rating and five penalty minutes in 17:17 of ice time. Borowiecki dropped the gloves with Brandon Bollig during the first period to give him 88 penalty minutes in 45 games. He has picked up eight points and 155 hits this season as well.

Mark Borowiecki will return to the Senators lineup Wednesday versus the Canadiens.

After being a healthy scratch in Monday’s game against Carolina, Boroweicki will find his way back into the Sens lineup Wednesday. The 25-year-old Ottawa native has no fantasy value unless you are looking strictly for penalty minutes, as Borowiecki has 71 in just 36 games played on defense. He will replace Patrick Wiercioch on the blue line.

Mark Borowiecki is a healthy scratch in Monday's game against Carolina.

The 25-year-old has no goals and just seven points in 36 games this season. He shouldn't appear on anyone's fantasy radar.

Chris Phillips will head back to the press box after he played in his 1,179th game as a member of the Senators.
Feb 6 - 5:40 PM

Mark Borowiecki will be a healthy scratch Thursday.

Chris Phillips will play to get his franchise record for games played and Eric Gryba will also dress for the Senators, so Borowiecki and Patrick Wiercioch will head to the press box.
Feb 5 - 11:09 AM

Mark Borowiecki and Patrick Wiercioch will play against the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.

Borowiecki has some value through 31 games, he's accumulated 54 blocks, 64 PIMs, and 119 PIMs. Which is more than what can be said for Wiercioch.
Feb 3 - 6:17 PM

Look for Mark Borowiecki to return to action Saturday afternoon against the Coyotes.

He had missed the last month due to a terrible laceration of his leg sustained during a pre-game soccer match. Borowiecki doesn't have any offensive skills but he can help out if your league values penalty minutes. Chris Philips will likely be a healthy scratch to accommodate Borowiecki's return.

Mark Borowiecki (leg) has been medically cleared to return, but he won't play Thursday.

He has been removed from Ottawa's injured reserve list. Borowiecki has been sidelined since Dec. 27 after his leg was cut on an electrical outlet.
Jan 29 - 3:41 PM

Mark Borowiecki (leg) may be ready to return when the All-Star break is over.

He has completed Ottawa's mandated skate conditioning test for players returning from injury and he's eager to get back into the lineup. "I'm not sure, having had the time off that I've had, that four full days of rest would be the smart thing for me to do," Borowiecki said Wednesday. "I want to hit the ground running. I want to be ready to go once the break is over. Whether it's skating, whether it's lifting, just something to keep myself going." He sustained a leg cut on an electrical outlet back on Dec. 28 and he hasn't played since then.
Jan 22 - 11:38 AM

Mark Borowiecki will be out of action for a prolonged period of time.

He will be wearing a walking cast for at least a week after receiving 48 stitches in his left leg to close a gash that went three layers deep sustained while playing in a pregame soccer warmup. After the cast is removed, Borowiecki will be re-evaluated. There is no timetable for his return to action. If you were counting on Borowiecki to provide you some penalty minutes, we suggest you look elsewhere for now.

Mark Borowiecki (leg) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Borowiecki needed 48 stitches after suffering a deep laceration during a pregame soccer warmup. He has five points and 62 penalty minutes in 30 contests. The move is presumably retroactive to Dec. 27, which means that putting him on the IR at this point was an easy decision. That being said, there's no timetable for his return.

Mark Borowiecki required 48 stitches after he suffered a deep laceration to his left leg during a pregame soccer warmup.

"We weren't doing anything too silly there, I just happened to run by one of the electrical boxes out there and I felt something brush against my leg," he said. "It didn't hurt too, too much when it happened but when I looked down at what it was, obviously I was a little shook up." It's unclear when he'll be available to return.
Jan 1 - 10:21 AM
