The Ottawa Senators were absolutely pulverized by the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night. Barring a herculean-effort from Robin Lehner (45 SV/47 SA) in relief of Craig Anderson -- really, it was one of the best performances I've seen in some time -- Anaheim could've went crooked-number in the goals for column. The California trip was, for the most part, a complete disaster for Paul MacLean's team. T...

Travis Yost: Kyle Turris, Line One?

Ottawa's picked up four points in just five games to start the year, and although the team knew that the early-season west coast swing would be one of the toughest scheduling runs of the year, they can't be thrilled with their collective play right now. I think getting back to home-ice will do this team wonders. Remember, just one year ago, Ottawa posted gravely disparate...

Travis Yost: G5: Senators @ Ducks

Robin Lehner's heroics on Saturday night weren't enough against a superior San Jose Sharks team at HP Pavilion. The Senators were again plagued by their propensity for penalties and a lackluster penalty kill, and Brent Burns' go-ahead goal at 7:58 was enough to hand Todd McLellan's team a regulation victory. The loss was Ottawa's first in regulation this season...

Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean looking for improvement

Paul MacLean stopped some drills Friday and raised his voice a couple of times. If practice makes perfect he's still searching for that in the way the Senators are playing as they prepare to face the San Jose Sharks at the SAP Center Saturday night. MacLean isn't complaining his club has four of a six possible points through its first three games but he'd like to see...

Senators Jason Spezza expected to play Saturday

Jason Spezza looked good Friday. The better news is he skated without pain for the fourth straight day. All signs point to his return to the Senators lineup Saturday night against the San Jose Sharks at the SAP Center but he and coach Paul MacLean were both being cautious in giving a final thumbs up after a 45-minute skate. After sitting Wednesday against the Los Angeles Kings...

Senators Bobby Ryan returns to Anaheim

It will be homecoming weekend for Bobby Ryan. While the Senators will play the San Jose Sharks Saturday night a lot of eyes will be on Ryan's Sunday return to Anaheim where he played the first six years of his career before being dealt to Ottawa in July. "I looked up this date when the schedule came out in the summer" said Ryan Friday. "Probably for the reasons...

Ducks’ Barrage Downs Senators

Craig Anderson of the Senators makes a save in this picture from the OC Register. The Anaheim Ducks used a franchise-record 56-shot barrage to down the Ottawa Senators 4-1. Corey Perry scored twice for the Ducks to give them all the offense they need.  Nick Bonino and Ryan Getzlaf also scored for Anaheim while Bobby Ryan picked up the lone Ottawa goal. Hampus Lindholm had two assists...

Mighty Ducks Down Ottawa on Throwback Night

Too bad it can't be throwback night every night.  On Sunday evening, the Ducks lived up to their original Mighty name and defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-1. From honoring fifteen players from the original Ducks team that took the ice on October 8, 1993, to the retro uniforms, to the $0.93 sodas, popcorn and cupcakes, everything felt fun and festive.  Watching the Ducks manhandle...

Senators-Ducks Preview

In one of this summer's biggest offseason trades, the Anaheim Ducks sent four-time 30-goal scorer Bobby Ryan to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for a package centered around up-and-coming forward Jakob Silfverberg. While Ryan has played well for the Senators in the early going, Silfverberg has shined a bit brighter. Silfverberg looks to lead the Ducks to a fourth consecutive...

Elliotte Friedman's Three Thoughts on the Senators

When hockey’s best columnist devotes three of his thirty thoughts to the Ottawa Senators, it’s second nature to examine what he wrote and break it down further. Let’s take a look: 1.Obviously, the biggest debate in Edmonton is what goalie the Oilers should chase. They are at 49 contracts, so signing a free agent or trading a draft pick for a player  completely eliminates...
