Pro Sports Daily:
Erik Karlsson had quite an eventful day.
He spent time in coach Paul MacLean's doghouse, he set up the winning goal and he invented a new word.
"I bobble(bleeped) the puck and it wound up in the back of our net," the Senators defenceman said of his part in a first period goal by Florida's Nick Bjugstad, who accepted Karlsson's gift then cut out in front of him to jam a shot by Robin Lehner.
But wait ... bobble(bleeped)? Is that all one word or two?
"I don't even know if it's a word," said Karlsson. "Bobble(bleeped). Ah well, (crap) happens."
Karlsson also made a wrong choice to go for a hit at the Panthers blue line, creating an odd man rush for the visitors that didn't wind up costing the Senators.
BEST OF MAXIM
Just as Ottawa Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson began to look like he was back to perfect form after last season’s Achilles injury, the Swedish star was benched by head coach Paul MacLean today. Karlsson was glued to the pine for…Read more →The post Ottawa Senators: Erik Karlsson benched against the Florida Panthers appeared first on The Hockey Daily.
There’s a lot of diplomacy floating around the Ottawa Senators locker room these days.
On a few occasions last week, coach Paul MacLean made it abundantly clear that Craig Anderson is still his No. 1 goaltender — the latest declaration coming after backup Robin Lehner turned aside 26 shots in a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers Saturday afternoon for his third straight win....
Jason Spezza is determined to be a complete captain.
The biggest part of the job: To lead by example.
As the Senators prepare to contine this five-game homestand Tuesday night against the Philadelphia Flyers at the Canadian Tire Centre, the Senators captain revealed to the Sun he’s determined to be better at both ends of the ice.
No longer is winning the Art Ross Trophy as the...
The Ottawa Senators have been one of the most impressive teams to watch in the last three years. GM, Bryan Murray said three years ago, that he wanted to implement a “three-year rebuild plan” in which they would acquire assets to help this team make a run by the end of the three-year plan. Ottawa let go of former head coach, Cory Clouston and brought in Paul MacLean from Detroit...
Watching a replay of Real Time with Bill Maher on Saturday, the last thing I expected to see was Chris Neil appearing during 'New Rules' - the segment used to wrap up each show.
Neil shows up at around the 0:56 second mark of the video below:
It wasn't exactly the most glamourous photo used of Neil, but Neil's never really been the most photogenic guy...
Kyle Turris had a goal and an assist to help the Ottawa Senators beat Florida 3-2 on Saturday, spoiling Peter Horachek's debut as the Panthers' coach.
Horachek was promoted from the team's American Hockey League affiliate in San Antonio on Friday after the club fired Kevin Dineen and assistant coaches Gord Murphy and Craig Ramsay. The Panthers have lost eight in a row...
The net belongs to Robin Lehner.
But for how long?
Senators starting goaltender Craig Anderson, who suffered a stiff neck in a collision with Dallas Stars forward Valeri Nichushkin last Sunday, is back practicing with the team and says he’s ready to start as early as Saturday against the beleaguered Florida Panthers.
Anderson won’t be starting, however.
Robin Lehner has led the Ottawa Senators on their best stretch of the season and is the NHL's reigning first star of the week.
Apparently that's not enough to keep him on the ice.
Lehner will be back on the bench while Craig Anderson returns to Ottawa's net Tuesday night for a home game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
As Anderson sat out the last three games with...
There’s a new player in the Senators dressing room: Confidence.
What a difference a week makes.
Battling to get out of the doldrums in the midst of a five-game winless skid only a week ago, the Senators were all smiles as they spent Sunday relaxing after a 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday, the club’s third straight win.
Not only have the Senators moved themselves...
Tim Thomas arrived in Ottawa as an almost mythical figure – The Goalie the Senators Couldn’t Solve.
By the end of his team’s 3-2 loss at the Canadian Tire Centre, he probably wished he’d spent the afternoon at the hotel watching Duck Dynasty.
Thomas probably played well enough to win, but Florida’s punchless power play (0-for-5) and haphazard defensive play was too much...
