Colin Greening C OTT 28 Days

Greening scored his first goal -- and point -- of the season in Monday's win over Buffalo.

It's been a poor season for Greening, as he's often been a healthy scratch, and when he's been in the lineup, he's been skating career-low minutes -- in the single digits each of the last four games, and just barely over 10 minutes on average fro the season. But one rather uncharacteristic thing he's been doing lately is racking up PIM -- he picked up four Monday and has 18 over the last five games. He also has 20 hits in that span.
