Game 29 Hub: Sens @ Oilers

Game 29 Hub: Sens @ Oilers

The Sens take on McDavid and Draisaitl. With their losing streak now at five games, the Ottawa Senators (11-16-1) will look to salvage the western swing of their road trip with at least one win, when they take on the Edmonton Oilers (17-9-3) tonight at Rogers Place. DJ Smith has yet to name a starter for tonight’s contest. Anders Nilsson started in Vancouver last night, but was given the hook after allowing four goals in the first, and Marcus Hogberg played the remaining two thirds of the game. Whether Smith opts for the hot hand, or the rested hand, is anyone’s guess. The Senators’...

Game 28 Hub: Sens @ Nucks

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports The search for scoring continues on the west coast The Senators will try to stop their losing skid at half as many games as Montreal four in a row with a somewhat strange stop in Vancouver, between visits to Calgary and Edmonton. Craig Anderson took a full practice yesterday and is eligible to come off IR today, but DJ Smith confirmed that it will be Anders Nilsson starting with Marcus Hogberg backing him up tonight. It also looks like Logan Brown will draw back in with J.C. Beaudin sitting this one out. Tkachuk - L.Brown - Duclair Paul - Pageau -...

Sens Fall Apart in Third, Lose 7-2

Sens Fall Apart in Third, Lose 7-2

Photo by Bruce Kluckhohn/NHLI via Make it three in a row. For about 44 and a half minutes, the Ottawa Senators looked like they were in decent shape. In a game which had seen them lead for the majority of it, they found themselves trailing the Minnesota Wild 3-2 going into the third period. There, the floodgates opened, and Ottawa ultimately fell 7-2 in the State of Hockey, now 11-13-1 on the season. Anders Nilsson finished 27 for 35. The first period was marked by Minnesota missing some glorious opportunities, somehow not connecting on wide open nets with Anders Nilsson nowhere in...

Sens Recall Hogberg

Sens Recall Hogberg

Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via It’s 30-50 Feral Hogberg time. The Ottawa Senators have recalled goaltender Marcus Hogberg from their AHL affiliate in Belleville, ahead of tonight’s home game against the Boston Bruins. He is expected to back up Anders Nilsson. Craig Anderson did not skate this morning, and appears to be under the weather. Hogberg saw four games in Ottawa last season, posting a record of 0-2-1, being pulled in another. He finished with a 4.09 GAA, and a 0.884 SV%. Though he was strong in Belleville, he’s had a rockier start to this season. Hogberg’s current...

Sens Dominate Rags, Win Third Straight

Sens Dominate Rags, Win Third Straight

Photo by Jana Chytilova/Freestyle Photography/ Logan Brown scored his first in the Sens’ best effort of the year. For a team like the Ottawa Senators, who had expectations lower than the Mariana Trench going into the season, winning three consecutive games is a relatively big deal. Couple that with the fact that they did it with their best game of the season, and the Sens are starting to turn some heads. They put together their first full-game effort of the year, last night, en route to a 4-1 win over the New York Rangers. Anders Nilsson was excellent, stopping 30 of 30, and was one...

Hard work prevails as Sens battle past Flyers, 2-1

Hard work prevails as Sens battle past Flyers, 2-1

MY TWO SONS | Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports Tyler Ennis and Filip Chlapik score, while Anders Nilsson stands tall (figuratively, and literally) In D.J. Smith’s first press conference with the Ottawa Senators, he communicated that he wanted the team’s identity to be a physical, hard-working team that others hate to play against. Well, a quarter of the way into his first season with the team, and you’re starting to see those effects. This timeline makes sense. Recall when Guy Boucher started with the Sens, his first game was a run-and-gun victory against the up-and-coming Toronto...

Game 19 Hub: Flyers @ Senators

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports A quick pit-stop back home The Senators are back in Ottawa for just their third home game in the month of Roadvember, fresh off a well earned comeback win in New Jersey. Logan Brown is off injured reserve and ready to draw back in, while Bobby Ryan has earned his way out of the press box. J.C. Beaudin and Jonathan Davidsson were sent down to Belleville yesterday. Anders Nilsson gets the start, while Craig Anderson presumably gets the nod tomorrow night in Buffalo. Tkachuk - L.Brown - Duclair Paul - Pageau - C.Brown Ennis - White - Namestnikov Chlapik -...
