Tuesday: Senators at Tampa Bay Lightning, 7:30 p.m., St. Pete Times Forum.
TV: Sportsnet, TVA-Sports.
Radio: Team 1200, CKOI 104.7 FM

This is the final meeting of the year between the teams and the Lightning will be looking for some measure of respect. The Senators have won the first three meetings, all convincingly, 4-2, 4-1, and 4-0. As they enter the week, the Lightning are two points out of the final playoff spot, but facing long odds. They’ll need 26 points in their final 17 games to get the 94 that usually gets you in.

Thursday: New York Rangers at Ottawa, 7:30 p.m., Scotiabank Place.
TV: Sportsnet, TVA-Sports.
Radio: Team 1200, CKOI 104.7 FM

The Rangers won’t be hoping to see the Senators in the first round of the playoffs. The Senators have played them tough this year, winning two of the first three games. The last time they met, on Jan. 12, the Senators hung a 3-0 shutout on them. The Rangers have played well on the road: 20-8-5. The Senators are 17-13-3 at home.

Saturday: Buffalo Sabres at Ottawa, 7 p.m., Scotiabank Place.
TV: CBC, RDS.
Radio: Team 1200, CKOI 104.7 FM

This is also the final meeting of the year between the teams. The Sabres won the first two games but the Senators have won the last three. The Sabres have played themselves back into the playoff race by going 6-2-2 in their last 10 so this one will be interesting. On the road, the Sabres are 14-16-1.
