Forsberg, Stützle Lead Ottawa Past Columbus

Photo by Kirk Irwin/ Anton Forsberg was on his game while Tim Stützle made some unbelievable plays as the Ottawa Senators wrapped up their road trip with a win in Columbus. After losing three straight, the Sens were on the road tonight to face off against an equally not-so-great Columbus Blue Jackets team. While they weren’t able to take down the Sabres, and gave both the Penguins and Capitals some solid efforts, all eyes were on the Sens to see how they’d fare in the second half of this back-to-back against a beatable team. The game started just as the Sens would...

Game 35 Preview + Open Thread: Ottawa Senators @ Columbus Blue Jackets

Photo by Kirk Irwin/ It’s been a while.... On the heels of a tough 3-2 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals last night, the Ottawa Senators roll into Columbus to face the Blue Jackets tonight. If it feels like it’s been a while since the Sens were matched up against this particular opponent, that’s because their last encounter was February 24th, 2020 — almost two years ago! In that time, a lot has changed for both teams but maybe especially so Columbus who famously traded Pierre-Luc Dubois for Patrik Laine, and then parted ways with John Tortorella at the...

Sens Fall 3-2 to Caps in Overtime

Sens Fall 3-2 to Caps in Overtime

Photo by John McCreary/NHLI via Despite a great defensive effort in the 1st period, it’s the team’s 3rd loss in a row. As you may recall, the Ottawa Senators’ last game against the Washington Capitals, a 7-5 loss on October 25th, was something of a tale of two teams. Specifically, a dominant one when Thomas Chabot was on the ice, and the complete opposite when he wasn’t. In order to have a shot at winning tonight’s game, the entire team needed to show up and play. It’s hard to picture a better start than what we saw. After Ottawa’s top line of Brady...

Photo by Steven Kingsman/Icon Sportswire via Ottawa faces off in the other nation’s capital looking to avoid a 3-game losing streak The Ottawa Senators almost completed an incredible comeback on Thursday against the Pittsburgh Penguins, which would’ve been their second great comeback in less than a week. However, after the 6-4 loss, they have now lost back-to-back games and are looking to stop the skid while they visit the Washington Capitals. The last time the Senators played the Capitals, Drake Batherson got his first career hat-trick, yet they still lost a wild...

Weekly Question: How might Erik Brännström fit into the Sens’ plans?

Weekly Question: How might Erik Brännström fit into the Sens’ plans?

Photo by Derek Leung/ Our saviour has arrived, but is he here to stay? Erik Brännström has arrived. The 22-year-old defenseman has been quite possibly the biggest story of the Ottawa Senators’ last four games. After a few seasons of rarely being given opportunities to succeed and not doing much with the few opportunities he was afforded, Brännström finally looks like a top 4 defenseman. Not a guy with top 4 potential. A guy who can play in the top 4 right now. It’s fantastic, and surprising, and very well-timed, as a lot of us were just beginning to give up on...

Five Thoughts For Friday: There’s a ‘Ström Approaching...

Photo by Emilee Chinn/ Erik Brännström hopefully has seen the last of the AHL. After extinguishing the Flames in Calgary, and leaving the Edmonton Oilers feeling more empty than Paul Bisonette’s bank account, the Ottawa Senators proceeded to lose two straight games in which they looked like the better team for the most part. We should obviously be hoping for as many wins as possible, but I’m already more or less satisfied with the huge steps that have been taken by the team’s young players. Still, a major challenge looms ahead. On navigating a tough...

Senators Heroic Comeback in Pittsburgh Falls Short

Photo by Emilee Chinn/ Ottawa was down 5-1 and made it 5-4, but they couldn’t complete the comeback The last time the Ottawa Senators faced off against the Pittsburgh Penguins, it was just Ottawa’s 4th win of the season (to bump them up to 4-9-1) and their first dominant one as they won 6-3. It was an incredibly fun night at the Canadian Tire Centre, which was right before many positive COVID cases on the team. This time around, the Senators were playing in Pittsburgh looking to bounce back from an unfortunate 3-1 loss to Buffalo. The first period was not exactly...

After an impressive pair of wins in Alberta last week, the Ottawa Senators went and lost 3-1 to the Buffalo Sabres 3-1 on Tuesday because....of course they did. On the bright side of things, the team played well and likely deserved a better fate. On the other hand, losing to the Sabres immediately after playing some of their best hockey of the season is a very Sens-thing to do. Tonight’s match-up has Ottawa staring down the Pittsburgh Penguins, one of the top teams in the league. Taking down...

Have the Ottawa Senators Turned It Around?

Photo by André Ringuette/NHLI via Is the team’s hot play of late the real thing? After a 6-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on December 1st, the Ottawa Senators found themselves at 4-15-1. Things were looking pretty grim! Since that time, however, the team has compiled a 7-4-1 record and have, for the most part, seemingly played some pretty good hockey, Last night’s defeat to the Buffalo Sabres, for example, is typical of the type of loss that can befall a good team as the Sens were better throughout but simply couldn’t convert enough of their chances. Sometimes...

It’s been an inconsistent few weeks for the Belleville Senators but this past weekend they looked to be putting the pieces back together with three strong games against North Division rivals. On the weekend, Belleville made the trip to Rochester for a back-to-back with Jack Quinn and the Americans. Friday night, with Mads Søgaard manning the crease, the two clubs had a busy first period exchanging a total of three...

According to TSN, tonight’s matchup against the Sabres marked the first time since February 2020 that the Ottawa Senators had been favoured to win a professional hockey game. Naturally, they lost. What was that thing Connor McDavid said after he got sens’d? About how some teams find ways to lose?
