The Ottawa Senators are in trouble. Deep trouble. Deep, deep trouble.
After the opening two games in Sweden, where they lost in overtime and then beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1, the Sens have played 6 games back in North America. And we have lost 5 games! Yes, 5 games!
Our really bad end to the last season has continued on and we are hopelessly at the bottom end of the league. The only saving grace in the 6 matches was a 6-3 home win against the Phoenix Coyotes. Then it’s been loses to Boston, Toronto (??), Detroit, Florida & Anaheim. This is terrible. We need one of two good defencemen. I think we need a top goal scorer as well. I was hoping that we’d go and trade for a couple of name players but save Jason Smith we didn’t get any stars.
Here’s hoping that in the next few games we pick ourselves up and play like the team we know we are. Tonight it’s versus Buffalo Sabres.
