It has taken the Ottawa Senators 74 games to get here, but maybe, just maybe, they’ve found the secret to consistent success on home ice.
At least the Ottawa Senators showed a pulse.
The goal is an NHL playoff spot and Senators players know what has to be done, but they don’t want to get ahead of focusing on the next game.
The Senators ended a tough three-game road trip with one of their gutsiest games of the season, a 5-4 shootout win.
It may be getting late in the season to take pride in single points.
This is the second of three games between the Penguins and Senators this season.
