Just a reminder to readers that today’s game versus the Rangers is no longer a 7pm start, its start time has been changed to 2pm.
Here’s my prediction that ran as part of the Ottawa Citizen’s prediction panel…
Senators 4, Rangers 2
I suppose that if there’s a perk to being embarrassed 5-1 by the Philadelphia Flyers, it’s that Ottawa can get back in the saddle Saturday afternoon against a New York Rangers squad that’s gone 3-6-1 in their last ten games and are slowly returning to their rightful place in the middle of the Eastern Conference pack. With a rash of recent injuries, the Rangers are being carried by Henrik Lundqvist, Marian Gaborik and an underrated blueline. (Note: I never thought I’d ever say that about a blueline that features Redden’s $6.5M salary) Ah well, if the Senators lose, I’ll milk the angle that the Senators players failed to receive the memoranda informing them that the game had been switched to a 2pm start time.
