Things are not getting any easier for the Ottawa Senators. Goals aren’t coming by at all for the Sens and they are letting in pucks at the other end. On the 24th of November the Dallas Stars visited Ottawa and won 2-1 against the sens. Ryan Shannon had the solitary goal for Ottawa. 2 days later it was facing off against Crosby and the boys in Pittsburgh with the Senators losing by the same scoreline of 1-2. Jesse Winchester having the lone goal.
Where were the goals going to come from? How can we reverse this trend of losing? Well it a day late back in Ottawa and took a visit from Toronto to spark the Sens back to life. Mike Fisher scored two goals to follow Alexie Kovalev’s opener and grab a 3-0 win over their bitter provincial rivals. Brian Elliot made 29 saves to earned a shutout, his second of the season. Having just got off a great win, the Sens should have been on a high but they came crashing down after the Edmonton Oiler’s visit to the Canadian capital. Former Senator goalie Martin Gerber had a win over his former team, 4-1 with only Nick Foligno scoring for Ottawa.
December would prove to be of no respite for the Sens – Dany Heatley, booed throughout the game, might not have scored but his San Jose Sharks came off 4-0 winners on the 2nd of December. And then just last night the Sabres came a calling from Buffalo and although they didn’t score in the regulation time, they came off with a shoot-out win. Yes, Ottawa gets a point but where are we going to get the goals from? Tonight we face the Rangers and two days from that it’s Montreal.
