Senators Confirm Michalek Has Concussion

This afternoon the Ottawa Senators confirmed that Milan Michalek will be out indefinitely with a concussion. The NHL’s leading goal scorer suffered the injury in an awkward second period collision with teammate Erik Karlsson. Judging by the replays, in his fall from the hit, it looked like his head inadvertently hit the ice. If anyone […]

Michalek Injured: “It’s Like Deja Vu All Over Again”

Judging by the photograph above, you would think that the injury that Milan Michalek suffered in his awkward collision with teammate Erik Karlsson was one to his shoulder. Not so fast according to NBC Sports ProHockeyTalk’s James O’Brien: Tonight was supposed to present a great moment for Ottawa Senators forward Milan Michalek. The slick winger […]

Quick Thoughts On a Tuesday Night

From the WTF Files: Nick Foligno’s 2011-12 Season In case you haven’t noticed, Ottawa’s newest center is having a hell of a start to his 2011-12 season. Just thirty games in, his 10 goals and 9 assists have him well positioned to break his career high in goals (17) and points (34). Some would say […]

The 6th Sens Podcast – Episode 52 ft @neatebuzzthenet

I believe it was Ace Frehley who once sang the words, “I’m back!” (You can forget about that ‘back in a New York Groove’ part.) After a lengthy absence — we haven’t recorded a podcast since the first week of October — we jumped back into the studio on Sunday afternoon to record this episode. […]

Tuesday Morning Scuttlebutt

I held off on commenting on this but in his Sunday column that was published yesterday, Bruce Garrioch put forth the idea that former Senator Chris Kelly could be brought back into the fold as an unrestricted free agent. The Bruins will have a decision to make on C Chris Kelly sometime this season. An […]

Bryan Murray Addresses the Filatov Situation

This afternoon, Bryan Murray held a media scrum to update everyone on today’s Nikita Filatov happenings. As always, my comments are in bold. Enjoy. Q: Can you update us on Filatov? A: “Well, he’s being loaned back to Central Red Army in Russia of the KHL. After a fair amount of discussion with him, we […]

Breaking: Nikita Filatov Loaned to CSKA

Eighty-eight minutes and twenty-two seconds. That’s the amount of playing time that it took for the Ottawa Senators organization to determine that Nikita Filatov did not have a future with the team this season. In other words, like his doppelganger’s character from HBO’s Game of Thrones, Nikita Filatov is headed east across the narrow sea. […]

Patrick Wiercioch Hurt After Taking Slapshot Clearing Attempt to Throat

A little late to the party on this one but during last night’s Binghamton Senators game versus the Norfolk Admirals, Patrick Wiercioch took a puck to the throat during the first period. The Senators prospect was assisted off the ice and was immediately transported to the Lourdes Hospital. Following the game, the Binghamton Senators released […]

Is Filatov Playing Tonight? Nyet.

Hard to believe that when the above photograph was taken, it’d be representative of Nikita Filatov’s chances of playing under Paul MacLean. Anyways, here’s the last few seconds of audio from this morning’s media scrum. So there you have it: Nikita Filatov had no chance of getting into tonight’s lineup. In other words, nice knowing […]

Something About Ikea – @steffeG Files From Sweden

For this article, I asked Swedish hockey fan @steffeG to cover last night’s Swedish supermatch of the season. Here’s what he filed: Thursday night was the much anticipated night of the big Sens prospect showdown in the Swedish Elite League: Jakob Silfverberg’s Brynäs visiting Mika Zibanejad’s Djurgården. Everyone in Sweden was in their most comfortable […]

Filatov’s Time In Ottawa Drawing to a Close?

Reports from this morning’s practice indicated that the team’s line combinations remain unchanged from Monday night’s win against the Tampa Bay. Under normal circumstances, this wouldn’t be particularly surprising but for most of the game, the trio of Colin Greening, Jason Spezza and Bobby Butler was pretty ineffective. So much so that when the Senators […]

How the New NHL Alignment Affects the Ottawa Senators

  I have to admit, the best part about the NHL’s new alignment plan isn’t news that rivalries will be cranked up or that teams in the central region will now benefit from having more games scheduled within their timezone. No, the best part about any alignment talks are the inordinate number of unflattering Gary […]

Game Day Thread: Lightning vs Senators

  It’s a game night versus our expansion brethren Tampa Bay Lightning. As much as I’m looking forward to the prospect of watching the now-infamous 1-3-1 system, I’m half-hoping that the Senators can work in some footage from their expansion draft so fans can raise reflective questions like, “Why didn’t we draft Brian Bradley?” Ah […]
