Three Stars of the Year

Three Stars of the Year

The highlights from a lowlight of a year It was an awful season for the Senators, but that doesn’t mean it was an awful season for every individual player. Here’s a look at some of the highlights. Three stars Mark Stone — Who else could go here? I don’t think anyone would dispute that he was the best player on the team. He finished the year with 62 points in 58 games, including 20 goals. It’s fair to wonder if he would’ve passed his career high of 64 points if he’d been given even a couple more injury-free games. He stormed out of the gate, putting up 14 goals in his first...

Stone hoping to see Senators move in “right direction” as he heads into contract talks

If Erik Karlsson has played his last game as an Ottawa Senator, Mark Stone is the leading candidate to replace him as captain. Yet Stone would gladly give up the “C” in exchange for keeping “arguably the best defenceman on the planet” in Ottawa. Stone scored 20 goals and 42 assists in 58 games, ending […]

Sens Fall 5-2 to Bruins in Season Finale

Sens Fall 5-2 to Bruins in Season Finale

A disappointing end to a disappointing season. That’s all, folks. The 2017-18 season is finally over for the Ottawa Senators, finishing with their worst record since the first seasons of the franchise over 20 years ago; 28 wins, 43 losses, and 11 losses that went into extra time. Playing without their top stars Erik Karlsson and Mark Stone, the Sens didn’t stand a chance going up against a Bruins team that’s been on fire for months. Boston’s two points from this game slipped into one point behind Tampa Bay for the top spot in the East, with one more game to go and none for the...

Game 81 Preview: Sens @ Pens

Two more games to go. The 2017-18 Ottawa Senators season comes to a close this weekend, as they conclude with back-to-back games starting tonight. The first one is against the Pittsburgh Penguins, who have had their playoff spot locked down for a while. The Sens will be without their two best players in Erik Karlsson and Mark Stone for the final two games, although Bobby Ryan will return to the lineup after leaving mid-way through Wednesday’s game against Buffalo. Craig Anderson will play tonight, with the plan to give Danny Taylor the start tomorrow. Here are the practice lines from...

Snapshots: Mark Stone won’t suit up in final two games

Game 80 Preview: Sens @ Sabres

Game 80 Preview: Sens @ Sabres

Game 80! It’s almost over! Hey gang, we’ve almost made it. It’s Game 80. Three more of these things and we’ll be done with this horror of an Ottawa Senators season. They go to visit the Sabres tonight, another team that may have been hoping for a better season than the one they got. Zack Smith sat out practice today, but it’s reportedly just a maintenance day, so he’ll take Mark Stone’s spot from practice, since Stone isn’t playing tonight. Erik Karlsson didn’t make the road trip (understandably), which means the Sens should be going with 12 forwards, 6 defencemen. Craig...

Mark Stone could rejoin Senators lineup for game against Sabres

BUFFALO — Mark Stone is happy to be on the road again and he doesn’t just want to play the role of spectator. The Ottawa Senators winger hasn’t ruled out the possibility of suiting up Wednesday night against the Buffalo Sabres at KeyBank Center to begin the final three-game road trip of the season. Stone, […]

Sens Collapse in Third Period, Lose to Oilers 6-2

Can anybody stop Connor McDavid? Here was Ottawa’s defensive corps at the start of the game: Chabot - CeciWolanin - BorowieckiClaesson - Harpur The lack of top-end skill and experience, combined with both Erik Karlsson and Mark Stone out of the lineup — the circumstances to be facing Connor McDavid couldn’t have been any more dangerous. The Oilers superstar had his way with the Ottawa Senators in this game, with his four points surging Edmonton ahead for the 6-2 win. With the loss, Ottawa is now officially out of the playoff race. Edmonton’s dominance showed early, pouring eighteen...
