Owen Beck should have been given one more game in Montreal

Photo by André Ringuette/NHLI via The Canadiens could have kept Beck for Tuesday’s rematch with the Sens, and why not give him that second crack? Debuting in the National Hockey League at 18 years old, in the middle of a season where you’ve spent almost all of your time in the OHL, can’t be easy. Doing so as an emergency recall for a Montreal Canadiens roster that has been decimated by injuries, and struggling to win even when healthy, must be flat-out terrifying. Though the Ottawa Senators shut the Habs out 5-0, Owen Beck should be proud of his NHL debut. It...

Laval drops a goalie duel in Cleveland

Laval Rocket Cayden Primeau was electric, but the Rocket once again claimed just a single point in an overtime loss. Following a hard-fought 2-1 loss to the Belleville Senators on Wednesday night at Place Bell, the Rocket headed out on the road for a two-game stint in Ohio against the Cleveland Monsters. They did so without Kevin Poulin and Gabriel Bourque, both of whom were nursing minor injuries after a busy month of games. While Riley McKay was called up as a spare body, he was left out of the lineup in favour of John Parker-Jones, while Philippe Desrosiers served...

Sens beat the Isles 2-1 in tight game

Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports In his first NHL game, Ridly Greig put up an assist and 8 shots on goal It was a close one, and a bit of a three-way goaltending battle, but the good guys prevailed, with the Ottawa Senators beating the New York Islanders 2-1 in a game in which the shots finished 38-36 for the Sens. Shane Pinto and Claude Giroux scored for the Sens, and Cam Talbot earned the win, though Anton Forsberg had to come in halfway through the game when Talbot left with a mysterious lower-body injury. Hopefully, he’s OK, because it was otherwise a pretty good...

While the Ottawa Senators have been riddled with injuries all season, Norris’s injury has had the biggest impact both in terms of the level of skill missing from the team as well as the duration of his injury.

The most glaringly obvious problem was also predictable: the bottom six is very...
