Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson was trying to clear the puck out of the defensive zone when he fired it off his teammate’s face.  Chris Neil knew he was bleeding badly and went straight to the locker room to get stitched up.  Neil did return to the bench afterwards. https://twitter.com/nielsonTSN1260/status/398802558782681088/photo/1 [Larry Brown Sports]

WATCH: Chris Neil pours blood after taking puck to the face

Ottawa Senators forward Chris Neil took a puck to the face in the third period of a win over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night. Teammate Erik Karlsson went to flip the puck into the attacking zone and it caught Neil near the right eye, leaving a gash that went from above his eyebrow to […]

Chris Neil Gushes Blood After Taking Puck to Face From Teammate in Senators’ Win Over Canadiens (GIF)

Add “skating off the ice with ridiculous amounts of blood gushing from near his eyeball” to Chris Neil’s list of talents. The Ottawa Senators forward got on the wrong end of a pass from Erik Karlsson on Thursday night and was left with quite the bloody mess. Neil quickly made his way off the ice to clean up the gash, which stretched from above his eyebrow to the bottom of his...

Chris Neil took a puck to the face last night

There have been some pretty nasty instances of flying pucks finding players faces recently. Minnesota Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin missed several games after having his cheekbone broken by a dump in earlier this season and we all remember seeing Marc Staal catch a deflection into the eye that nearly blinded him. It’s just one of those risks that NHL players have to take when they...

Ottawa Senators: Erik Karlsson is back to being the best just in time for a Subban visit

After the 2011-12 NHL season, Erik Karlsson had emerged as the league’s premiere offensive defenceman. In only his second season in the league, the entertaining Swede tallied 78 points in 81 games, outscoring many prominent forwards. Karlsson was crowned Norris…Read more →The post Ottawa Senators: Erik Karlsson is back to being the best just in time for a Subban visit appeared...

Ottawa Senators: Erik Karlsson benched against the Florida Panthers

Just as Ottawa Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson began to look like he was back to perfect form after last season’s Achilles injury, the Swedish star was benched by head coach Paul MacLean today. Karlsson was glued to the pine for…Read more →The post Ottawa Senators: Erik Karlsson benched against the Florida Panthers appeared first on The Hockey Daily.

Karlsson back on the attack

Perhaps it’s merely a coincidence, but ever since a testy Erik Karlsson bit back at reporters’ criticisms early last week by proclaiming “I’m not some (effing) god or something,” he has raised his offensive game several notches. The Ottawa Senators defenceman has four goals and five assists in his past five games and sits atop the NHL’s scoring lead among defencemen...

Lehner, Senators topple Canadiens

Robin Lehner stopped 33 shots to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 4-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night. Bobby Ryan, Marc Methot, Mark Borowiecki and Kyle Turris, scored for the Senators (6-6-4), who posted back-to-back wins for just the second time this season. Andrei Markov scored for the Canadiens (8-8-1) as Carey Price faced 23 shots. Montreal is winless in...

Anderson feeling fortunate to be back on the ice

Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson remembers every detail of the hit from Valeri Nichushkin of the Dallas Stars last Sunday and he has re-lived it while watching the video. He agrees that the episode looks “pretty nasty” and he understands all the deep concerns Ottawa Senators fans had when he was taken off the ice on a stretcher, but all things considered, he feels fortunate...

Senators trip up Habs, winning 4-1

It was a night for Local Heroes. The Senators ended their five-game losing streak at home with a 4-1 victory over the arch-rival Montreal Canadiens led by the winner from Ottawa native Marc Methot and the first NHL goal from Stittsville’s Mark Borowiecki. Not only did the Senators stretch their record to 5-0-2 against Eastern Conference opponents, a 33-save performance by Robin...

Turris leads Senators past Panthers, 3-2

Kyle Turris had a goal and an assist to help the Ottawa Senators beat Florida 3-2 on Saturday, spoiling Peter Horachek's debut as the Panthers' coach. Horachek was promoted from the team's American Hockey League affiliate in San Antonio on Friday after the club fired Kevin Dineen and assistant coaches Gord Murphy and Craig Ramsay. The Panthers have lost eight in a row...

Travis Yost: Robin Lehner Show

I guess Paul MacLean's going to have a bit of a decision to make in the coming days and weeks, upon the return of injured netminder Craig Anderson. Ottawa's 4-1 victory over Montreal on Thursday night came [mostly] courtesy of Robin Lehner, who was far and away the best player on the ice at the Canadian Tire Centre. Lehner stopped 33-of-34 shots, beaten only by a Andrei...

Chris Neil Appears on HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher

Watching a replay of Real Time with Bill Maher on Saturday, the last thing I expected to see was Chris Neil appearing during 'New Rules' - the segment used to wrap up each show. Neil shows up at around the 0:56 second mark of the video below: It wasn't exactly the most glamourous photo used of Neil, but Neil's never really been the most photogenic guy...

Eric Engels: Habs fumble two points in Ottawa

I think we can all agree with Michel Therrien's assessment that his team showed up to play in Ottawa, that their execution was much better than it was against St. Louis, and that they dictated the tempo of the game, but you don't have to be a genius to see the glaring mistakes that were made. A confusion between Lars Eller, Alex Galchenyuk and Raphael Diaz left Bobby...

Travis Yost: G17: Panthers @ Senators

After a rough start to the season, the Ottawa Senators have a chance to break the .500 mark in the standings with a victory this afternoon over the Florida Panthers. There may not be a better time to draw this particular Floridian club. Head coach Kevin Dineen was fired earlier in the week, and GM Dale Tallon recently threatened that moves are on the horizon for his woefully performing team....

Senators outlast Panthers 3-2 for third straight win

Tim Thomas arrived in Ottawa as an almost mythical figure – The Goalie the Senators Couldn’t Solve. By the end of his team’s 3-2 loss at the Canadian Tire Centre, he probably wished he’d spent the afternoon at the hotel watching Duck Dynasty. Thomas probably played well enough to win, but Florida’s punchless power play (0-for-5) and haphazard defensive play was too much...
