Senators Make A Promise to BU’s Matt O’Connor

Back when I was in elementary school, I was approached during a recess by a girl who was in my grade three class. She was carrying a note written by a friend of her’s and a fellow classmate of mine who wanted to know if I would “go out” with her. In exchange, she was […]

Mike Hoffman, the “Defensive Liability”

If there one recurring complaint concerning Dave Cameron’s coaching decisions down the stretch, it involves his decision to diminish Mike Hoffman’s role by relegating him to the fourth line.

‘Young and Hungry’ Step Aside for Older and Experienced

  Andrew Hammond’s 20-1-2 regular season record may buy him a guaranteed one-way contract with the Ottawa Senators or another NHL team on July 1st, but with his Senators dropping the first two games of their series versus the Montreal Canadiens, Hammond’s regular season record could not buy him a third consecutive playoff start.

The 0-2 Hole

You never want to be fall behind and be in an 0-2 hole.

Subban Avoids a Suspension and a Thursday Mix Bag

Five minutes, a game misconduct and playing for the Habs is apparently punishment enough. At least that’s the message being conveyed by the NHL whose head of discipline (and former Montreal Canadiens defenceman for the tinfoil crowd out there), Stephane Quintal, determined that P.K. Subban will not face supplementary discipline for his malicious slash to the […]

Crank Up the Hate: Take the Montreal Canadiens Quiz

A Historic Run and Shelving Concerns

Open up the Sens Mile! Through the culmination of Saturday’s events, the Senators punched their playoff ticket and will take on the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of this year’s playoffs. Meaning for the first time since December 7, 2014, the Senators finally have a use for Paul MacLean’s doppelganger, Mike Watson. One Twitter […]

We’re In. Now What?

After an incredible run by our Ottawa Senators, we have now clinched a spot in the big dance. New faces have stepped up and made this so run just so much fun (i.e. Stone and Hammond). Now despite all of this the Sens have another job to do. Beat their arch rivals the Montreal Canadiens. […]
