Found February 20, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
A series of injuries has hammered the Ottawa ranks, and corresponding expectations have been significantly reduced in the aftermath. What was once a team almost certain of contending for a playoff spot is now a roster in-flux, and it's tough to know where Ottawa's really headed in the short-term this season. The Senators have put together two quality wins in a row, besting the Devils on Monday...

Could the B's Make a Push For Daniel Alfredsson?

Would Alfredsson Accept a Trade to Boston? To add to my previous post about the possibility of Iginla or Ryder the new name being linked to the Bruins is Ottawa veteran, Daniel Alfredsson. Here's Pierre LeBurn's take on the situation: ESPN- But in the event the injury-riddled club can’t overcome its massive loss of talent, it certainly raises the the question: What lies...

Travis Yost: Craig Anderson Shuts the Door

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! --It's going to take a herculean effort from the likes of goaltender Craig Anderson if the Ottawa Senators are serious about staying afloat in the Eastern Conference.

Travis Yost: Craig Anderson Leaves Game With Gruesome Injury

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- Following in the footsteps of every single player to wear a Senators sweater this season, Ottawa netminder Craig Anderson was knocked out of Thursday night's game against the New York Rangers with a brutal lower-body injury.

Anderson's Play Can't Be Sustainable, Can It?

That black cloud hanging over the Ottawa Senators season has nothing to do with mounting injuries. Nor is it the possibility that this could be Daniel Alfredsson’s last with the Senators. No, the real cause for concern is the likelihood that Craig Anderson's numbers should regress. Of the NHL goalies who have more than one game appearance, only two goalies have even-strength...

Travis Yost: GAMEDAY: Senators Host Rangers; Injury Updates Galore

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- Paul MacLean's team has been beaten senseless with injuries this season.

Michalek Kneeds a Second Opinion

After tweaking his knee during the February 13th pregame skate in Pittsburgh, Milan Michalek is allegedly going to get a second opinion to determine whether or not surgery is needed. The winger has already missed three games because of the injury, but for what it’s worth, the Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch writes that the Senators do not expect Michalek to be out for long, should...

Will Neil Catch Del Zotto With His Head Down Tonight?

Last spring, the Rangers and Senators played a grueling seven game series that at times got pretty nasty with Carl Hagelin injuring Daniel Alfredsson with a hit from behind and Chris Neil concussing Brian Boyle with a hit to the head. Another hit that may still have repercussions is when Michael Del Zotto caught Neil with his head down behind the net in Game 4 and dropped him...
