The Sens have lost four out of five, but it's the way they're losing games that a bit shocking.

As we regroup from last night’s blown lead that resulted in another loss for the Senators and brace ourselves for the possibility that this team may not be as close we hope to turning around their season, knowing that the Senators have put the month of October behind them and are moving on to an easier stretch of games.
For as painful as it has been to watch at times, the team’s...
