Five Thoughts for Friday: Bad Injury Luck, Useful Vets, and Character Players

Five Thoughts for Friday: Bad Injury Luck, Useful Vets, and Character Players

Photo by Richard A. Whittaker/Icon Sportswire via Lots to chew on this week Welcome to another edition of Five Thoughts for Friday, where the Ottawa Senators just keep on trucking in spite of all of the injury hardship thrown their way. Batherson’s Unexpected Injury: On Tuesday night, Drake Batherson was injured when he crashed feet first into the boards after absorbing a hit from Buffalo Sabres goalie Aaron Dell. It was immediately apparent that the injury was severe, so it was no surprise when reports emerged on Thursday that Batherson was likely done for the...

Canes Top Sens in a Shootout

Canes Top Sens in a Shootout

Photo by Richard A. Whittaker/Icon Sportswire via The Ottawa Senators took the Carolina Hurricanes to a shootout tonight thanks to big games from Matt Murray, Alex Formenton and Tim Stützle. The Senators were back in action tonight welcoming the Carolina Hurricanes to the Canadian Tire Centre to wrap up their season series. Last time these two teams met, the Sens grinded their way to a win, a turning point moment for this young group as they went 9-5-2 heading into tonight since that early December victory. The scoreboard remained unchanged through the first twenty...

Game 37 Preview + Open Thread: Carolina Hurricanes @ Ottawa Senators

Photo by Gregg Forwerck/NHLI via Egor Sokolov returns as the Sens take to the ice without their star forward After a decisive win over a bottom-feeding team on Tuesday, the Ottawa Senators will play host to one of the best teams in the league, as the Carolina Hurricanes pay a visit to the Canadian Tire Centre. The Canes have been phenomenal all season, and are widely considered to be an underrated team and a dark horse cup contender. The last meeting between these two teams snapped a massive losing streak for the Senators and kicked off a pretty impressive turnaround....

Thursday LNN: Points for Paul + Injury Updates

Photo by André Ringuette/NHLI via Just another piece of evidence that Nick Paul does it all. With two wins in a row, the Ottawa Senators have been riding through a pretty busy week with a ton of momentum. Will they be able to keep things going in spite of an injury to one of their best players? On Tuesday, one day prior to Bell Let’s Talk, forward Nick Paul launched the Points for Paul initiative, partnering with the Royal Ottawa Foundation to raise money in support of mental health. Here’s Paul on the focus and background of the initiative, how you can...

Alex Formenton Has Arrived

Alex Formenton Has Arrived

Photo by Kirk Irwin/ The 22-year-old is showing that he’s not only an NHLer: he’s an impact one On December 1st, 2021, the Ottawa Senators were a paltry 4-15-1. They had lost to the Vancouver Canucks 6-2 and it was seen as the newest low of the season. The following night, the Senators eked out a 3-2 win in Carolina, and they have gone 9-5-2 ever since that date, trying to reverse their fortunes. One big reason for that 3-2 win? Alex Formenton, who scored the first two goals. Coming into that game, he had just two goals and one assist in 17 games—a disappointing...

Ennis Lights Up Aaron Dell in Eventful 5-0 Win Over Sabres

Photo by André Ringuette/NHLI via Ennis got a hat trick, Murray got a shutout, and Batherson may be out for the season There was once a time when the Ottawa Senators and Buffalo Sabres had one of the more heated rivalries in the NHL. Tonight, we saw a bit of a resurgence of that rivalry. Sure, both teams have been bad for a long time and they’re mostly just competing for a lottery spot at this point, but there was real bad blood between them tonight. There was drama. There was intrigue. There were hits. Injuries. Highlight-reel goals. A player lighting up his former...

Game 36 Preview + Open Thread: Buffalo Sabres @ Ottawa Senators

Photo by André Ringuette/NHLI via Robin Lehner has left them, so why are the Sabres still tormenting us? The Ottawa Senators are currently on a run of relatively strong play, with 8 wins in their last 15 games. In that stretch, they’ve frustrated the Carolina Hurricanes, shut out the back-to-back champs, the Tampa Bay Lightning, embarrassed the Florida Pathers by an 8-2 score, and landed the Edmonton Oilers on rock bottom. It’s loads of fun to knock down the league’s top teams (or mediocre teams with top talent in Edmonton’s case), but the opposite is true...

Prospect Update - January 25th

Photo by Steven Kingsman/Icon Sportswire via The defence corps of tomorrow—today! With the Belleville Senators off this past week, and not too much in terms of offence to speak off, consider this update a lot more quality than quantity with a few names in particular really carrying the team. Not that we can complain though. What we’ve lost in junior and collegiate representation (and even in AHL domination) we’ve gained in a legitimately exciting core of young NHLers who seem painfully close to really putting it together.
