Mid-Season Report Cards Roundtable: Part 2

Mid-Season Report Cards Roundtable: Part 2

Photo by Richard A. Whittaker/Icon Sportswire via The conclusion of our discussion! Following Thursday’s discussion, here is Part Two of our discussion surrounding the Sens’ mid-season grades! Question for everyone: Artem Anisimov has received...less than favourable reviews from everyone. Why is that? Considering that he’s on pace for roughly 20 goals in 64 games. Ross: Not really sure, to be honest. Probably a combination of the fact that he’s been injured a bunch, that 45.8% share of the 5v5 shot attempts (via Natural Stat Trick) is the worst among Sens centres other than...

All Star News, Youth Olympics and Stu Strong 2

Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via More All Star Sens in the NHL and AHL! It’s a quiet week for the Senators as they embark on their bye week but the league doesn’t take a break and neither do our weekly links and news. We all heard the great news last night about Brady Tkachuk taking Auston Matthews’ spot on the All Star team. However, we should never forget about our promising youngsters down in Belleville. With Drake Batherson and Rudolfs Balcers already making the AHL All Star team, it was announced yesterday that Josh Norris was a late addition to the team. Following the...

Tkachuk added to All-Star Game

Tkachuk added to All-Star Game

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Tkachuk joins Duclair as Ottawa’s representatives One man’s injury is another man’s opportunity. With news coming out that Auston Matthews was nursing a wrist injury and wouldn’t participate in any of the on-ice activities during All-Star weekend, we knew a replacement would be announced. Turns out that replacement is Ottawa Senators sophomore Brady Tkachuk. Tkachuk will join Anthony Duclair in representing the Sens, making Mitch Marner the lone Maple Leafs representative. It will be the first ASG appearance for both forwards. Tkachuk currently has 15...

Gustavsson and Daccord Stand Tall, BSens Keep Rolling

Gustavsson and Daccord Stand Tall, BSens Keep Rolling

Jonathan Kozub/Manitoba Moose Filip Gustavsson and Joey Daccord combined for 127 saves across four games, posting a collective 0.941 SV% to lead Belleville to a 2-1-1 week. It was another week of winning for the Belleville Senators and, quite frankly, I’m never going to get tired of it. While this past week wasn’t perfect, the BSens were able to add five out of a possible eight points to their resume, pulling them back into a tie for first place in the North. To make matters even better, Belleville was gifted with reinforcements on Saturday afternoon after Ottawa sent Drake...

Mid-Season Report Cards: Defence & Goaltenders

Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports The Silver Seven staff continue to hand out our mid-season grades, and use this as another opportunity to gush about Dylan DeMelo After Shaan let you know how we graded the Sens forwards yesterday, we turn our attention to the defence and goaltenders. Unlike last season, which saw 15 different defencemen spend time at the NHL level, this year’s Senators squad is down to a more reasonable 11. We’ve graded nine of them below, leaving out Max Lajoie and Christian Jaros due to limited viewings. There’s some stability in net as well, with Anderson,...

3 Best Trades in Senators History

The Ottawa Senators have made their fair share of trades throughout their history. Some of those moves have seen them come out on top, but others have fans wondering what just happened. As with any NHL team, the return a team can get for a particular player or pick can vary a great deal. Are […] The post 3 Best Trades in Senators History appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Three Stars of Week 16

Three Stars of Week 16

Photo by Richard A. Whittaker/Icon Sportswire via It’s Hoggy’s crease to lose now By the skin of their teeth and on the back of our first star, the Senators claimed three of a possible six points this week and broke even in goal differential. Despite those respectable results, however, the team painted a picture that looked far from pretty. With all of Ottawa’s veteran defenders healthy, you would have expected much tidier play in their own end. Up front, Ottawa desperately missed Jean-Gabriel Pageau who did not participate in the Senators’ games against Vegas and Calgary. All...

Flames struggle to find offence in loss to Senators

OTTAWA — Mark Jankowski’s season-long dry-spell is over. Finally. Now, if only the rest of the Calgary Flames could start finding the back of the net again. The Flames sputtered into their week-long bye/all-star break with Saturday’s 5-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators, a cellar-dwelling squad that had yet to win in 2020. With that […]

Hogberg’s 40-Save Performances Helps Lift Senators Past Flames 5-2

OTTAWA — Marcus Hogberg made 40 saves for the Ottawa Senators in a 5-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Saturday. The Senators (17-23-8) were outshot 42-21 and if not for Hogberg’s performance, they would have likely seen a different outcome. This marked the 25-year-old’s second NHL win in 13 career starts. The victory also allowed Ottawa to snap its nine-game […] The post Hogberg’s 40-Save Performances Helps Lift Senators Past Flames 5-2 appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Sens Break Losing Streak, Defeat Flames 5-2

Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via Marcus Högberg kept them in it, in spite of their awful defensive performance. Losing is never fun, even in a tanking season. It took a while for the Ottawa Senators to break their nine-game skid, but they did it in the scrappiest way possible against the Calgary Flames, beating them 5-2 for their first win of 2020. To say the Sens were outplayed would be an understatement. Especially earlier in the game, the lack of offensive zone time became increasingly frustrating to watch, with little effort being put in to make it past the Flames’ neutral zone...

Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports Bottom of the barrel takes the win leading up to the All-Star break, giving the Calgary Flames something to reflect on. Calgary Flames - Ottawa Senators Complete Stats Recap They looked so good on paper — Calgary Flames outshooting and outplaying the Ottawa Senators the entire game, but goals win games. Things started to unravel for the Flames on an own goal by Travis Hamonic in the 1st period — which was credited to Brady Tkachuk for his 15th goal of the season. The Sens would get a couple more goals on Flames goaltender David Rittch in the 2nd...
