Joe Corvo D OTT 2 Days
Joe Corvo logged a season-high 21:13 of ice time against Florida on Tuesday.
He has skated in two games this month and appears to be earning a spot on Ottawa's blueline after he was scratched for a long stretch in November (11 of 12 matches). "It feels good to play my game the way I've played in the past and do what is expected of me," said Corvo, who has two goals and six assists in 12 games. "I think I'm doing that right now. I'm moving my feet, making plays, just trying to make it impossible to take me out of the lineup." He could be worth monitoring if he stays in the lineup.

Joe Corvo helped the Ottawa Senators beat the Florida Panthers 4-2 on Tuesday.
Corvo had a goal and an assist, giving him an intriguing eight points in 12 games. If he can stay on the ice, he could be a valuable depth defenseman. Perhaps he can even fill a blueline void for the Sens.

Joe Corvo suited up for Ottawa on Wednesday night for the just the second time this month and for the first time since Nov. 12.
Heading into the contest, Corvo had been scratched for the past six games and 11 of the past 12. Ottawa has been carrying two extra defensemen this season and he's been the odd man out most nights. Still, it doesn't sound like he's eager to be traded. "I don't know," Corvo said. "It's not something we want to happen, but if there's eight defencemen, the GM has a job to do, I'm not going to ask him or tell him how to do his job. Whatever he's going to do he's going to do." He has five points in nine games this season.

Joe Corvo is a more mature player than the last time he played with the Senators, which was five years ago.
Corvo requested a trade in 2008 because he wasn't happy with his playing time and didn't like the scrutiny involved with playing in Canda. "I'm more comfortable with it now, I faced a lot of scrutiny in Boston (in 2011-12)," Corvo said. "You've just got to understand you can't be on your phone all the time, looking at blogs and reading into anything, which I don't even do anymore." Now, at 36, he's also realistic about his ice time. "As I've gotten older I think I have a better idea of different pieces of a puzzle on a team," Corvo said. "I'm way more open minded as to where a coach feels I fit in on a team."
