Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- Through twenty-three games, Ottawa's posted a respectable 12-7-4 record. Paul MacLean's kind of working a smoke-and-mirrors miracle led by incredible goaltending, and not much else. The trio of goaltenders -- Craig Anderson, Ben Bishop, and Robin Lehner -- are stopping pucks at a rate we haven't really seen in quite some time. At even-strength, the...

Harry Zolnierczyk destroys Mike Lundin, Suspended four games

My first question is, why are the refs immediately rescuing Harry Zolnierczyk after he destroys Mike Lundin with this dirty elbow? Zolnierczyk is the one that laid out Lundin with the dirty hit, he's the one that should be the one fighting Kaspars Daugavins or Senators tough guy Chris Neil for that matter. I guess Harry Zolnierczyk is going to have to wait because he has been...

Mark Stone Recalled

You cannot squeeze blood from a stone, but the Senators are about to try and squeeze some goals from one. This afternoon, the goal-starved Senators announced that Mark Stone has been recalled from the Binghamton Senators. In 38 games during this AHL season, he has 8 goals, 21 points, with a meager 1.37 shots per game rate. Now what has he done in his professional NHL career...

Staying Off The Scoreboard and Addressing Alfie Rumours

  When pretty much all of the Senators’ best players succumbed to injury, the natural reaction for many was to write off this shortened 2013 season and hop aboard the tank. And really, who could blame us? We expected the team to have a difficult time scoring without the likes of Milan Michalek, Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson - and they have dutifully lived up that astute...

Dee Karl: No Sequester Talk with these Senators Game Day

Evgeni Nabokov will be in net today when the Isles face the Ottawa Senators. But if you thought anyone else would have been, you're foolish. The troubling thought is that John Tavares may not be playing this afternoon as he has been feeling ill since Friday. My personal opinion is -- if he's sick, don't let the kid play. He has a better chance of getting hurt if...

Bryan Murray Speaks - Preparing for the NHL Trade Deadline

  When it comes to sports journalism in Ottawa, Le Droit’s hardworking Sylvain St-Laurent deserves more attention. I’m sure some of this is attributable to the language barrier that some non-bilingual Anglophones may experience, but if you’re not already, follow Sylvain on Twitter (@Syl_St_Laurent) and give his work a read. That being said, on his sports blog published...

The Way It Is

Today the NHL announced a four game suspension to Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczyk for a hit on Ottawa Senator Mike Lundin. The hit was borderline as Zolnierczyk slightly left his feet at the last second to nail Lundin, who left the game with a concussion. Some Flyers fans are surprised with the length of the [...]

Nine Year Anniversary Of The Flyers/Senators Brawl

from Wikipedia, The Flyers–Senators brawl was a line brawl that occurred during a National Hockey League game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Ottawa Senators on March 5, 2004. The two team's combined penalty minutes, 419, were the most in a single game in the history of the league.[1] The game was played at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S...

Travis Yost: A Tough Loss on Long Island

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The Ottawa Senators forced yet another game past sixty minutes of regulation courtesy of a late third-period equalizer from Patrick Wiercioch, but had no answer for a trio of skilled New York Islanders forwards in the shootout, dropping the game 3-2 in extra-time. Both Frans Nielsen and John Tavares beat Robin Leher in the skills competition...

When Harry Zolnierczyk Met Shanny

After having his hearing this morning, Brendan Shanahan, the NHL's Director of Player Safety, has suspended Harry Zolnierczyk four games for his illegal hit to the Senators' Mike Lundin.  Below is Shanahan's explanation of the four game suspension:   "As the video shows, as Lundin carries the puck through the neutral zone, Zolnierczyk comes onto the...
