When the Winnipeg Jets and Ottawa Senators clashed on Thursday night at Scotiabank, I was convinced of two things: One, that a team had to actually win this game. Two, that if Ottawa won, I'd be able to write about their victory without using the word 'grounded'.
The 4-1 victory over the Jets should give a young clubhouse some optimism as they drive f...

The Ottawa Senators held a players-only meeting on Wednesday, one day removed from being blasted by the Philadelphia Flyers.
Under new coach Paul MacLean, Ottawa has limped out to a 1-5-0 mark and yielded seven goals in two of its last three games.

Ottawa Senators center Peter Regin will miss Saturday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets due to an ailing shoulder.
Regin aggravated the surgically repaired shoulder in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets. He is expected to see a second medical opinion.

Milan Michalek and Jason Spezza each had a goal and an assist in the second period to give Ottawa its first lead at the end of a period this season, and the Senators went on to beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-1 on Thursday night. Daniel Alfredsson scored in the third and Michalek scored his second of the game into an empty net as Spezza also finished with three points with his second assist.
