That’s the impression you get from the folks over at NBC’s ProHockeyTalk, who are taking a look at the schedules of all 30 NHL teams. The Senators will benefit nice stretch of five of six games played at home in mid-October, which they may need to take advantage of if they’re to survive November and early December.
As is often the case in the NHL, one man’s pain is another man’s gain. Such is the case with Peter Regin and Mika Zibanejad, who entered Senators training camp in a battle for the team’s No. 2 centre position.
