Aleksander Barkov is on quite a hot streak right now.

The uber talented pivot, who was in huge a scoring slump for the latter part of October and most of November in which he didn't score a goal in 21 games, has turned his season around with 11 points in the Panthers' last 12 games. Now that's more like the production we have come to expect from Barkov. Hopefully you didn't give up on him.

Aleksander Barkov was one of four Panthers who made three shots on goal Saturday night, but it was not enough as they lost 2-0 to the Ottawa Senators.

Barkov had more than 22 minutes on ice as did Vincent Trocheck who also had three shots—both were simply unable to make anything of their effort. Mike Condon will get credited with the shutout win, but he was not challenged very often as the Panthers fall to 12-11-2, which leaves them fifth in the Atlantic. Jaromir Jagr and defenseman Jason Demers were the other Panthers with three shots.

He has contributed nine assists in the last 11 contests, but he hasn't registered a goal since back on Oct. 15 against Detroit. Barkov will face the Red Wings on Thursday night. "He's such a horse for us," interim coach Tom Rowe said. "The thing that impresses me the heck out of him is he's as cool as a cucumber on the bench. If he plays like that he'll eventually break [out] and when it breaks it'll be big time."
