OTTAWA -- As much as Canadians like to go south at this time of year, the Ottawa Senators always welcome a visit by the Florida Panthers. Kyle Turris scored twice and Craig Anderson kicked aside 31 shots for the shutout as the Senators dumped the Panthers 4-0 on Monday night at Scotiabank Place. The Senators have sent the Panthers away disappointed six times in row and also have won 10 of the last 11 meetings between the two clubs north of the border. The Senators, who are off to a 2-0 start, next take on the Panthers (1-1) Thursday in Florida. Fourth-line center Jim O’Brien and rookie winger Jakob Silfverberg had the other Senators goals. It was O'Brien's first of the season and the first of Silfverberg's career. Turris now has three in two games. Ottawa had a strong start in its home opener, outshooting the visitors 18-4 in the first period but managing only a 1-0 lead. The goal came on a power play, with Turris one-timing a tough-angle shot by Panthers goali...

TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT?
This was absolutely bizarre. When I first saw it I thought I was just seeing things, but Ottawa Senators Head Coach Paul MacLean definitely had his doppleganger in attendance at their game against Florida on Monday night.Seriously, it looks like some bizarre reflection, but it’s actually some random guy that could 100% be his clone/twin.I hope someone finds out where this guy...
Ottawa Senators head coach Paul MacLean was so focused on the game that he may have had no idea that a lookalike fan was sitting in the front row seat right behind the Senators bench.
SportsNet cameras perfectly captured MacLean with an impersonator sitting right behind him, and viewers and broadcasters got a good chuckle out of it. However, apparently a Senators team executive...

Sometimes a photo speaks more than words and this post contains an image from last night's Florida Panthers/Ottawa Senators that needs to be seen to be believed.
The image shows Ottawa Senators head coach Paul McLean and his possible twin sitting behind him at the Scotiabank Center:
Add an assist on the #Sens fourth goal to Erik Karlsson. He finishes game with 1 goal, 2 assists. #Sensareback

I'm not sure if this should be placed in group D, or if this qualifies as a new group entirely - play where Karlsson doesn't touch the puck.
Great scorers they got working there at MTS.

As an organization, the Ottawa Senators have never quite experienced the quality or quantity of goaltending ability like the one recently assembled by GM Bryan Murray. The acquisition of Craig...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer Alex Kovalev's first NHL appearance came before Jonathan Huberdeau was born. For that matter, it even predates the first game in Florida Panthers' history.
He's a tad experienced, to put it mildly.
At 39, with his name already etched on the Stanley Cup and with 429 goals - and counting - to his credit, there isn...

Quick post today, but some interesting news floating over from Europe concerning the Ottawa Senators and their interest in a star defenseman has certainly raised a few eyebrows.

"And the fact I am criticized … There are different journalists. My opinion of Ottawa journalists is that they don 't watch hockey at all. When they fly with the team and go through the [metal detector] at an airport, their bags are filled with beer. You realize right away what these people do when they write about the NHL." ~ Alexei Kovalev, scapegoat – August...

If the Florida Panthers needed any more reasons not to get out of bed this morning after suffering a 4-0 loss to the Senators, they found one in Montreal. They'll brave the cold to try and pick up the pieces and get back the winning form they showed against Carolina in their season opener.

The Ottawa Senators' hopes of building on their surprising success from last season likely hinge on the scoring depth that develops beyond their first line.
While it's only two games into the season, Kyle Turris appears ready to be a key player in those plans.
