If the Senators suffer a regulation loss to Philadelphia Thursday, their record will be 17-24-7.
Why is that significant?
It’s exactly the record former Senators head coach Craig Hartsburg had with the Senators before being fired and replaced by Clouston two years ago.
It’s eerie and could leave Clouston with an even more uneasy feeling about his job security on the flight home from Philadelphia late Thursday.
Win or lose, however, the Senators won’t have much time to dwell on the result. They’re back in action again Friday at Scotiabank Place against Montreal.
