As the UMass Lowell River Hawks’ season gets underway this month, the junior levels have been in regular season play for nearly a month now. Over the month of September, a few UMass Lowell commitments have made their mark, but none have as big as Ryan Collins.
Ottawa Senators goaltender Robin Lehner is seething about a last-minute stick change forced upon him by the NHL.
He has accepted a two-inch reduction in the length of his pads but he’s irate about the league’s decision to reduce his stick length to 26 inches from a 28-inch version he has used for the past five seasons. Lehner didn’t learn about the need to switch until midway...
The Ottawa Senators made the most of a goal in the waning moments in Buffalo to secure the regular season opener. They'll need a better effort on the second-half of a back-to-back if they want to best their provincial rival on Hockey Night in Canada.
Friday night's game, highlighted by two outstanding goaltending performances courtesy Craig Anderson and Ryan Miller, featured...
Senators goalie Craig Anderson knew there was no room for error with the way Buffalo's Ryan Miller was stopping everything directed his way at the other end of the ice.
It took nearly all three periods for one to falter in a stellar goaltending matchup, which Anderson won by stopping 35 shots in Ottawa's season-opening 1-0 win on Friday night.
Erik Karlsson scored the lone...
Erik Karlsson scored with 1:35 remaining in the third period and Craig Anderson stopped 35 shots in leading the Ottawa Senators to a season-opening 1-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night.
Former Sabres forward Clarke MacArthur set up the goal to spoil the Sabres' home opener.
Driving up the left wing, MacArthur slipped a pass through the middle to set up Karlsson alone...

It may have taken a few extra days, but hockey in the nation's capital is officially back. The Ottawa Senators begin their six-game road-trip in Buffalo tonight, with some rather daunting match-ups on the horizon.
The season opener at the First Niagara Center is an exciting one for the organization. The team made a lot of noise...
Gary Bettman and his people finally allowed the Senators to start the regular season like everyone else on Friday night.
Not only were the Senators the Columbus Blue Jackets Carolina Hurricanes and New York Islanders the last teams to play Game 1 but with six on the road (including a gruelling four-game trip to California and Arizona) before Ottawa's first on home ice it'...
Ryan Miller's made 45 saves, however, lost to Craig Anderson and the Ottawa Senators 1-0 on Friday night in Buffalo.
Miller's 45 saves tied him for the 2nd-most in his career. The 45 shots were the most since he made a career high 48 saves on 50 shots in a game played on January 8, 2010 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Thanks to an offseason riddled with more distractions than customary Dustin Byfuglien weight jokes, Senators fans have been begging for the real games to begin.
And really, who could blame them?
From the organization’s stalled contract negotiations that eventually led to Daniel Alfredsson’s unforeseen departure, to Eugene Melnyk’s public relations battle with the City...
Although their long-time leader is now playing elsewhere, the Ottawa Senators are poised to sustain the success they've achieved the past two seasons.
For the first time since the 1995 season, the Senators will take the ice without Daniel Alfredsson when they visit the rebuilding Buffalo Sabres on Friday night.
