Marc Methot bit his tongue and chose his words carefully. The Senators' defenceman wasn't happy with sitting out Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Washington Capitals and had a hard time hiding his anger Wednesday at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Coach Paul MacLean told reporters Tuesday Methot was out because of a minor injury he suffered in practice Monday. Methot didn't think the injury was serious enough to keep him from playing. "Yeah, I thought, there was an injury in practice. It turned out to be nothing really," said Methot. "I felt really good (Tuesday) and I felt really good (Wednesday)." Asked if he was good to go vs. the Bolts Thursday, Methot responded: "Yup." Methot said not playing against the Caps was a surprise. "A little bit. I was a little caught off. I felt really good in the morning. It's their decision and I have to deal with it," said Methot. Methot left the ice early at the Verizon Center Tuesday mornin...

The Sens won the game 2-0."Marc Methot left practice yesterday with a bo bo and we're going to keep him out of the game...

Methot Voices Frustration

Marc Methot made waves this afternoon in a post-practice interview in which he expressed obvious frustration with being paired with Joe Corvo during practice – a clear indication that he could be scratched from tomorrow night’s game versus the Lightning. Via Ken Warren’s article on SenatorsExtra.com: “I was a little bit caught off (guard),” he said, rather tersely...

Senators goalie Anderson: Get rid of shootouts, flip a coin instead

NHL goalies don’t tend to like the shootout in general, but they really can’t stand the game-deciding event when they come up on the losing end. Ottawa Senators netminder Craig Anderson was the loser Thursday night against Ben Bishop and the Tampa Bay Lightning. The loss put Anderson on tilt a little bit after the game, especially when he started to comment on the shootout itself...

WATCH: Mikhail Grabovski claws Zack Smith in the face during scrum

Washington Capitals Mikhail Grabovski clawed Ottawa Senators Zack Smith in the face during a scrum in the third period of Tuesday night's game at the Verizon Center.Grabovski earned himself two minutes for roughing for starting the scrum (by knocking Smith to the ice), and a 10-minute misconduct penalty (presumably for clawing Smith's face).We understand that a certain amount...

Travis Yost: On Erik Condra and Bargain Shopping

I've written in the past about Erik Condra in the past, namely because I think he's one of a sub-group of players that are still providing way more value than they're paid. For as long as the National Hockey League's been in existence, players are mostly paid on their point-production. And, to a large extent, it makes intuitive sense. Better players tend to score...

Erik Karlsson And Mike Green Share A Tender Embrace During A Heated Scrum

During Tuesday’s Senators-Capitals game, a scrum broke out in which Caps forward Mikhail Grabovski attempted to claw the face off of Zack Smith. The highlight was pretty amusing: However, it was no where near as amusing as what happened between defensemen Erik Karlsson and Mike Green behind the scrum just a few seconds prior:   Fighting? Face-clawing? Naw man, let’s just hug...

Craig Anderson Loses Again, Blames Shootouts For His Mediocrity

Craig Anderson (3 GA, 35 SV, L) lost again last night and does that surprise anyone? He helped the Sens stay with it through the shootout but came out on the losing end with the Bolts’ Ben Bishop standing tall for another win. During the post game interviews Anderson was a bit cranky about his recent performance and who wouldn’t be? I mean, if I was Craig Anderson, I’d feel...

Senators Interested in Matt Moulson?

Even before Mark Stone injured himself at practice on Monday, the Senators were reportedly in the market for a top six forward who could complement their current group and give the Senators a chance to compete during this ballyhooed two-year window that ownership, perhaps unrealistically, thinks the team can contend for a Cup in. In an article for ESPN, Pierre Lebrun indicated...

'NHL Revealed' isn't perfect, but distinguishes itself quite well

My favorite moment in the first episode of NBCSN's NHL Revealed (which is a really a league production, in conjunction with executive producers Ross Greenburg, Julie Bristow and Steve Mayer) is kind of a tragic joke about hockey and the United States. Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson visits a cowboy-wear store in Nashville prior to a game against the Predators. Karlsson...

Bolts give up late lead but beat Senators in shootout

Late game heartache struck the Lightning once again. Tampa Bay lost the lead late in the third, failed to convert on an overtime power play chance before pulling out a 4-3 shootout victory over the Ottawa Senators. The win snaps a five-game winless streak at home for Tampa Bay and pulls them back into a tie with Boston for the lead in the Atlantic Division. Nikita Kucherov had...

When A Patch Piece Is Anything But.

I recently added another piece to my Ryan Getzlaf SuperCollection. From 2011-2012 Panini Limited comes this sweet Limited Trios Triple Patch featuring Getzy flanked by Corey Perry and former Duck Bobby Ryan.It's serial-numbered 25/25 and features two sweet patch pieces and one "patch" piece. I'm going to assume the Bobby Ryan sweater swatch is actually the inside...

The Most Forgettable Game of the Year

No ticket stub for Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators will be laminated and placed in a scrapbook.

Senators defeat Capitals 2-0

Canadian winter descended upon the American capital Tuesday. And, the Senators gave the Washington Capitals a lesson how to deal with icy conditions. No Alex Ovechkin. No problem. Without the NHL’s leading goal scorer in the lineup, goaltender Craig Anderson closed the door to make 34 stops for his 25th career shutout and third of the season as the Senators halted a two-game...

Senators-Hurricanes Preview

The Carolina Hurricanes and Ottawa Senators have managed to stay in the Eastern Conference playoff race behind impressive 11-game stretches. Both hope to see their success carry over into Saturday's matinee showdown at PNC Arena, where the Senators have struggled mightily over the years. One day after pulling out a 3-2 win at Philadelphia, Carolina (22-19-9) swept a two-game...
