The Senators finally play one on the road against the Philadelphia Flyers. Unfortunately for Ottawa, Ray Emery’s first game against his former club will be on home ice. It doesn’t help matters that Philly is on a four game winning streak and Emery will likely hang some cash on the dressing room bulletin board. Provided that they like the guy, the Flyers should do everything within their means to assure their new teammate of a victory. Unless Mike Richards and his cronies are spending the night before partying with some adult film stars or unless Emery’s five-hole is the width of the gap between Chris Pronger’s front teeth, Ottawa could be in tough.
