New Jersey Devils
Back from a trip to Hollywood Craig Anderson played a starring role for the Senators.
The Senators' top goalie was a human highlight reel making 40 stops as the club scored a 5-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils in front of 18867 in the home opener Thursday night at the Canadian Tire Centre.
Helped by three-point efforts from Erik Karlsson and captain Jason Spezza along with goals from Bobby Ryan Milan Michalek and Zack Smith the Senators sent the Devils packing by extending their winless streak to seven straight games.
The Senators made legendary goalie Martin Brodeur look awfully ordinary by beating him four times on the 22 shots he faced. Michalek's blast late in the third ensured the Devils wouldn't come back.
Anderson's best save of the night came in the third when he was able to get his paddle down to halt Jaromir Jagr parked all alone in front of the net. The Devils' only goals came from Steve Bernier and Travis Zajac in the third.
BEST OF MAXIM
Ottawa forward Erik Condra wanted to have a little bit of fun before his team's game against the New Jersey Devils. While practicing Condra sported backup goaltender Robin Lehner's old mask. Though the broadcast suggests it might be Craig Anderson's lid, some research reveals the mask belonged to Lehner.
While we're not exactly sure why he did such a thing,...
Erik Karlsson and Jason Spezza each had a goal and two assists to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 5-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night.
The win marked the Senators' first victory on home ice after they spent the first two weeks of the season on the road.
Bobby Ryan, Zack Smith, Milan Michalek also scored, while Craig Anderson stopped 39 shots.
The Ottawa Senators, in what can only be described as a predictable move and another slight to the recently-cut Mika Zibanejad, have called up center Derek Grant from AHL Binghamton.
The ridiculousness of Zibanejad still toiling in the minor leagues has been written about ad infinitum here and elsewhere, so I won't expunge much more energy on a topic that really doesn'...
Nobody in the Senators room believes in ghosts Halloween month or any other time.
But nobody wanted that damned dressing room stall Daniel Alfredsson sat in at the Kanata castle now known as Canadian Tire Centre either.
"When they asked me I said absolutely not" Bobby Ryan recalled Friday afternoon. "A guy that was here for however many seasons and captain for however...
This afternoon the Oilers attempt to turn around their young season starting with the Ottawa Senators. The team has dug itself such a deep hole that without a winning track record itâs hard to believe they can truly recover. No, Iâm not saying the season is lost already, but I am saying that there is a lot of ground to cover if they want to make it back to respectable positioning...
Devils players and general manager Lou Lamoriello remain convinced that coach Pete DeBoer has one of the brightest hockey minds in the NHL and that he is still the man who can turn the team’s season around before it’s too late.
But as the 0-4-3 Devils look for their first victory of the season when they host the Rangers (2-4-0) tonight at Prudential Center how patient will Lamoriello...
The Senators know their problem. The coaching staff addressed it fully firmly and finally on Friday.
Too many penalties have equalled too many shots against.
If it keeps up the players were told at a Sensplex practice in preparation for
Saturday's visit by the Edmonton Oilers it won't just be this game that is lost.
It will also be the season.
Too soon for such talk...
from Tom Gulitti of The Record,
So far, the players and Lamoriello have given every indication that they still believe in head coach Pete DeBoer. But, if a team keeps losing like this one has been dating back to last season – 4-12-7 in its last 23 games overall – eventually the head coach pays for it no matter how much the players want to play for him or how much of the...

Clearing the six-game west coast road trip out of their way early, the Ottawa Senators now have a lengthy homestand to look forward to, with eleven of the next fourteen games to be played at Canadian Tire Centre. They'll open up their newly-named barn tonight, when they play host to the winless New Jersey Devils.
After an ugly three...
Despite outplaying the Ottawa Senators for much of the night in their home opener, the New Jersey Devils once again left the ice the losing team.
The Senators jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, added another in the second period and ultimately that was too much for the Devils to overcome.
Craig Anderson stopped 40 pucks while Martin Brodeur only stopped 18-22 and that was the...
Even though the Ottawa Senators picked up a victory Thursday night over the New Jersey Devils, I don't think anyone -- from the coaches, to the players, to the fans -- saw that three-goal win as an impressive one. They were out-classed.
That's what makes today's 3-1 loss to Edmonton this afternoon a bit frustrating. Start to finish, it might have been Ottawa's...
The New Jersey Devils are enduring the worst start in franchise history.
The New York Rangers are dealing with a different type of loss.
The Devils get an eighth attempt at their first win of 2013-14 on Saturday night as they try to take advantage of a visiting Rangers team playing without captain Ryan Callahan.
New Jersey (0-4-3) has started a season with seven straight losses...
