The New York Rangers, winners of four straight, might be the hottest team in the NHL right now. So the Ottawa Senators, the last team to beat the Rangers in a 5-4 shootout on Oct. 29, can’t afford to look past tonight’s game.
To mark the 20th anniversary of the modern Ottawa Senators franchise, we asked several prominent bloggers to give us their favourite Sens moments. Next up: Graeme Nichols from The 6th Sens on a change of tone in the Battle of Ontario.
The fourth time they tested fate was unlucky. Three times the Ottawa Senators have gone to a shootout this season, and three times they’ve won. On Saturday against the Buffalo Sabres, they weren’t so lucky.
There will be no lineup changes for the Senators when they face the Buffalo Sabres at Scotiabank Place Saturday night. That means Brian Lee will play his second straight game after sitting seven as a healthy scratch, while David Rundblad will watch another one from the press box.
