Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter and Facebook! -- I'm told that the late-night Thursday night affair between the Ottawa Senators and San Jose Sharks should be pretty captivating hockey. I'm also told that Ottawa Senators prospect Mark Borowiecki will be making his NHL debut tonight on the blue line. In short? At some point during tonight's game, Denis Potvin will have to pronounce Mark B...

The Shroud of Turris

Okay, so a sepia colored linen from the Medieval Ages that bears the image of Kyle Turris hasn't been found but since arriving from the Phoenix Coyotes, the play of the skilled center has been nothing short of a miracle. With another two point performance last night, the bane of Dave Tippett's existence now has 4 goals and and 13 points since joining the Senators; pushing...

One (?) singular sensation

Tonight the Sharks face the Ottawa Senators for the one and only time this season.  Ottawa’s team has been, yes, I know, this is bad… sensational.  But they have been.  Merriam Webster defines sensational as “exceedingly or unexpectedly excellent or great.”  With so many players who are either oft injured, old or very young, the team was not expected to do so well this...

Let the Countdown to January 24th Begin

  As much I looked forward to last night’s ‘meaningful’ installment in the Battle of Ontario, the one game on Ottawa’s six game road trip that I am most interested in is Kyle Turris’ return to the desert on January 24th. Despite having published a number of posts that conveyed the point that as a young player who had produced some promising offensive results proportionate...

An All-Senator Affair For All-Star Captains

When an a specific city gets to host an All-Star game, I wonder if the NHL offices try to find every single way to make it hosting team oriented. The league took another step to make the All-Star game extra friendly today by announcing the two captains that will lead the two teams against each other. Ottawa's Daniel Alfredsson and former Senator Zdeno Chara will be wearing the...

Dion Phaneuf Gets Punched in the Mouth

On Tuesday Ottawa Senators Nick Foligno did something most of the NHL wants to do on a nightly basis, punch Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf in the face. And he proceeded to do so several times before adding in a solid hockey-sweater-pull-over-the-head move too. All in all, a solid effort! [Hockey Fights]  

Mike Augello: What Are They Shopping For?

Last night's 3-2 loss to Ottawa was a fairly critical setback for the young Leafs, who dominated the Sens in the first 40 minutes of the contest, but had no lead to show for it. Matthew Lombardi and Joffrey Lupul scored to give Toronto a first period lead, but Leafs nemesis Daniel Alfredsson scored in the waning seconds to give Ottawa a boost going into the locker room. ...

Cam Gore: Sharks effort falls short against surging Senators

The Sharks came out and started the game they wanted to against the Ottawa Senators, but after they opened the scoring the Sens controlled the momentum and netted four unanswered goals. In a nutshell the Sharks special teams were subpar, and Craig Anderson out dueled Antti Niemi. The Sharks had some great scoring opportunities but couldn’t solve Ottawa’s goaltending...
