SUNRISE, Fla — The Ottawa Senators are aiming to continue their domination of the Florida Panthers Wednesday night, hoping for a sweep of the Sunshine State on consecutive nights.
The Senators, fresh from Tuesday’s 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, have won eight consecutive games over the Panthers, including both meetings at Scotiabank Place earlier this season.
The Panthers, however, are no pushovers. One of the NHL’s most surprising teams, they lead the Southeast Division by four points. They’re also aiming to win their fourth straight game, for the first time since 2008.
Craig Anderson, who made 28 saves against Tampa to post his second shutout of the season, will start for the Senators.
