SNAPSHOTS: It meant a lot to Ottawa Senators winger Brady Tkachuk to score a goal in Winnipeg

The significance of the moment wasn’t lost on Brady Tkachuk. The Ottawa Senators’ alternate captain scored his second of the season in Saturday’s 6-3 loss at Bell MTS Place, but it meant a lot that it was the first of his career goal against the Winnipeg Jets because his family has a long history with the city and the franchise. The 21-year-old Tkachuk tied it up 2-2 at 11:14 of the second period and...

GARRIOCH: The Ottawa Senators trying to find winning solutions as road trip moves to Vancouver

A week into the shortened season and the Ottawa Senators are searching for answers. And, with time ticking away on this 56-game schedule, they’d better find them in a hurry. Coming off a 6-3 loss to the Winnipeg Jets Saturday at Bell MTS Place to start this seven-game, 14-day road trip, the Senators arrived in Vancouver around 5 a.m. EST and spent their day off hunkered down at their hotel as they prepare...

Sens Swept by Jets in Another 3rd Period Collapse

Photo by Jonathan Kozub/NHLI via Another late lead evaporates for the Sens. A season that opened with so much optimism is beginning to fade into repetitive frustration. Holding a lead over the Winnipeg Jets in the third period once again, the Ottawa Senators gave up four unanswered goals, and fell 6-3 in the final contest of this “series”. Marcus Hogberg did all he could, stopping 32 of 36 shots, while Andrew Copp led the way for Winnipeg with a pair of goals. It was a first period with an unfitting conclusion. The Senators came out flying; Connor Brown, Drake...

Good riddance: Senators lose third in a row to Jets

GARRIOCH: The Ottawa Senators bring in some toughness to start seven-game road trip

The Ottawa Senators decided to add some muscle on a Hockey Night in Canada. As the Senators prepared to close out this three-game series against the Winnipeg Jets at Bell MTS Place Saturday night to start this seven-game road trip, coach D.J. Smith decided to bring rugged winger Micheal Haley off the taxi squad and into the lineup to try to halt the club’s winless streak. ...

Game 5 Hub: Sens @ Jets

Game 5 Hub: Sens @ Jets

Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via The Sens try to break their three-game losing streak After an invigorating first win, the Senators have settled into the growing pains we expected from a rebuilding team. They’re still not a great team in a division full of good, though maybe not great, teams. They’re now on a three-game losing streak, and are looking to break it against a Jets team that they’ve lost to in their past two games. The Jets have moved Patrik Laine (and Nate Thompson) to the IR, so he will be out of the lineup for another game. It’s hard to know...

Weekly Question: Impressions so far

Weekly Question: Impressions so far

Photo by Steven Kingsman/Icon Sportswire via We want to know: what have your impressions been of the Senators very early in the season? To begin every new season, we need to remind ourselves that we are extremely early into the season. The Ottawa Senators have played 4 games, and although the last game was an extremely disheartening effort, it’s not as if this is all of a sudden a lost season—even if we shouldn’t be expecting a playoff berth. Now that we have finally played some games and have things to talk about though, I’m curious as to what people’s...

GARRIOCH: The Ottawa Senators could have Tim Stuetzle back as they close out series in Winnipeg

DJ Smith and the “Honeymoon Phase”: Now Comes the Real Test

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via Fans have been upset with some of DJ Smith’s decisions, signalling that the next step is his first real test Every new head coach seems like a breath of fresh air. You get rid of the previous one who everyone was fed up with and everything seems great again. That was the feeling once Ottawa Senators head coach DJ Smith was hired in May 2019, as fans were tired of Guy Boucher and wanted a new voice. Pierre Dorion has even said that hiring DJ Smith might end up being the best thing he ever does in his career: "When I look back on my...

Five Thoughts: On Tkachuk’s Leadership, DJ Smith’s Choices, and Impressions of Stützle

Whittaker/Icon Sportswire via It’s the first in-season edition of Five Thoughts for Friday We’ve had four (!) whole games’ worth of Ottawa Senators hockey since the last edition of Five Thoughts. With such a rich vein of content to mine from, you’ll have to forgive the length of some of these thoughts.

GARRIOCH: Senators need Colin White to find confidence and consistency this season

Colin White made his return to the Ottawa Senators’ lineup Thursday night. Essentially, it’s up to him if he’s going to stay there. Scratched in two of the club’s first three games by coach D.J. Smith, White returned Thursday against the Jets at the Canadian Tire Centre in place of veteran centre Artem Anisimov. The Senators don’t need the 23-year-old White to carry the team, they just need him to...

Sens Drop Third Straight, 4-1 to Jets

Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via Sens were chasing this one the entire night. It was a game that the Ottawa Senators would probably like to forget, but one that would also do well to remember. In their second of three straight games against the Winnipeg Jets, the Senators never got out of the starting gate, and were dealt a more-decisive-than-it-appeared 4-1 loss. Matt Murray was pulled after allowing four goals through two periods, while Connor Hellebuyck was excellent, turning aside 28 of 29 Ottawa chances. The Senators’ record falls to 1-2-1. It was a striking...
