Me: So, is tonight the night? Milan Michalek: Yes. Me: I can go ahead and report it? Michalek: Yes. #Sens #LD — Sylvain St-Laurent (@Syl_St_Laurent) April 12, 2013   For the first time since March 8th, Milan Michalek will be back in the lineup for tonight’s pivotal matchup that will help determine the playoff fates for the Ottawa Senators and New Jersey Devils. Michalek, who has missed 25 of Ottawa’s last 27 games tried to rehabilitate and play through the pain and inflammation that some bone chips in his right knee had created, but eventually he elected to have arthroscopic surgery on March 19th. The timing of his return could not be better. Having only pushed 9 goals past goaltenders in their past six games (not including Alfie’s EN goal last night), the Senators whatever production Michalek can provide right now.

Zack Smith and The Myth of The Slump

When the Sens shocked the hockey world last season by making the playoffs in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year, Zack Smith was a big part of it.

His 2011-12 season gained him a ton of praise from the team and fans alike, and...

You Make The Call, Did Craig Anderson Butt-End Adam Henrique?

from Brian Stubits of Eye On Hockey, As part of a chaotic sequence around the Senators' net on Friday night, Anderson was peering into the corner following the puck while Henrique was skating right next to him. Slyly, Anderson stuck out his stick and, with the butt end, caught the face of Henrique. At the same time, David Clarkson and Zack Smith were having a fight...
