Paul MacLean is sticking with the hot hand.
Backup goalie Robin Lehner will make his second straight start against the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center as the Senators try to string together a couple of victories in a row.
Coming 30-save performance in a 3-2 victory over the Blues Monday, the Senators' coach doesn't feel a need to make a change because of Lehner's solid effort which means Craig Anderson will have to wait.
That being said, MacLean won't determine who will start against the Florida Panthers Thursday at home until after this game.
"We always go game-by-game no matter what," said MacLean. "After the game, we'll make a determination for Thursday."
The victory was Lehner's first in five starts. He hadn't won since Nov. 23 against the Detroit Red Wings and felt good about the fact the club was able to win.
"We've got to replicate that effort. It was a much-needed win," said Lehner. "We playe...
BEST OF MAXIM

Ottawa native Cody Ceci turns 20-years-old this weekend, and just three games into his NHL career he is making the most of his final days as a teenager.
The Senator’s rookie-defenseman helped the Ottawa Senators edge the St. Louis Blues in Monday night’s tilt with just over a minute to go in overtime, blasting a shot from the point past...
Two quick notes to tee up Wednesday night's game against New Jersey.
(1) Obviously, another big game tonight for the Ottawa Senators as they look to get back to .500 on the year in New Jersey. Ottawa, thanks largely due to the terribleness of the Eastern Conference, is still alive and kicking in the playoff race. There's still a ton of work to be done, and mathematically...
One season ago, the Ottawa Senators were absolutely decimated by player-injury. It's true that some players get injured more than others, but it's also true that there's a lot of luck in how these things turn out. A split-second too late, a half-an-inch to the left -- there's a lot of variable stuff at the root of player-injury, and as a team executive, coach, or...
Our Ottawa Senators Alumni recently held its annual Christmas party. As you could imagine, we all had a lot of fun. There were plenty of stories, thoughts, opinions and commentary about all sorts of things.
I always joke that, by the following morning after these get-togethers, the world will be a better place. That's because we solved all of the worldâs problem the...
Coming off one of the most emotional wins of the season, the Senators are in Newark, New Jersey tonight to take on another Eastern Conference opponent who is vying for a wild card position.
The importance of getting on a roll and going on a few winning streaks is reaching the critical stage, so you can understand the fan base collectively losing its head when news from this morning’s...
It's been a few weeks since the Ottawa Senators really had a bad game from start-to-finish, so perhaps tonight's blowout loss in New Jersey shouldn't have been a complete surprise.
On the other hand, everything's trended upwards of late -- and their performance on Monday night against St. Louis was truly as good as it gets. So, to see Ottawa just totally out-classed...
Big hits, big kills, a big defensive play and a big goal.
The Senators rose to the occasion and had one of their best opening 20 minutes of the season against the St. Louis Blues Monday. Had they played even half of their previous first periods the same way, they’d have 5-7 more wins.
Zack Smith set the tone physically and with a couple of penalties, and surviving his back-to...
The Ottawa Senators have gone 18 games without consecutive wins. They'll try to change that Wednesday night in New Jersey against a Devils team they've beaten in all four matchups this calendar year.
The Senators (14-15-6) defeated St. Louis 3-2 in overtime Monday to complete a 2-1-0 homestand with an especially local flavor. Ottawa native Cody Ceci scored his first NHL...
For the seventh time since going on a three-game win streak in the second week of November, the Senators lost after winning their previous game.
As Ian Mendes would be happy to point out, the Senators have historically been a streaky team under Paul MacLean, but for whatever reason, their inability to string together wins is putting the team in a position in which the margin...
Ottawa's decent skating performance against Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon went for naught, with Ottawa's goaltending posting one of their worst efforts of the season. Craig Anderson yielded two goals on the first four attempts; Robin Lehner saw Los Angeles slip three goals past on the twenty-two shots he saw in relief.
It's got to be a bit of a frustrating time...
New Jersey Devils forward Damien Brunner scores a beautiful goal against the Ottawa Senators, but the refs should have called the play dead and called a penalty. I would have been upset if I was the coach of the Senators as well. This is a blown call in my opinion.

Welcome to the morning after! A recap of the games from the night before and quick hit hockey news.
In Case You Missed It
Ottawa Senators are New Jersey Devils
It wouldn’t take long for the Senators to get a power play as just over a minute into the game Devils are Zidlicky would get called for hooking Erik Karlsson. The Senators power play would lead to a short-handed goal...
The Devils Damien Brunner, looking like an 80s muscleman, takes it away from Senators defenceman Jared Cowen before deking Robin Lehner for the gorgeous goal and a 4-1 NJ lead.**Follow us on Twitter, Subscribe by Email, View via Our Mobile Site, or Return Home
