Sens captain Jason Spezza scratched from last nights game

Last night, the Ottawa Senators were without Jason Spezza when they took on the L.A. Kings at the Staples Center due to an injured groin. The team had announced earlier in the afternoon that Spezza would be held out mainly for precautionary reasons, much to the dismay of the captain. Spezza did take a morning skate and following that he had a long talk with his head coach Paul...

Senators captain Jason Spezza aims to return from injury Saturday in San Jose

Jason Spezza isn’t resting his injury. He’s pushing it to make sure he can return. While most of his teammates did an off-ice workout at the club’s hotel Thursday the Senators’ captain was on the ice with Jared Cowen Eric Gryba Matt Kassian and Robin Lehner at a suburban arena. After sitting out the club’s 4-3 OT loss to the Los Angeles Kings Wednesday night because...

Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean looking for improvement

Paul MacLean stopped some drills Friday and raised his voice a couple of times. If practice makes perfect he's still searching for that in the way the Senators are playing as they prepare to face the San Jose Sharks at the SAP Center Saturday night. MacLean isn't complaining his club has four of a six possible points through its first three games but he'd like to see...

Senators Jason Spezza expected to play Saturday

Jason Spezza looked good Friday. The better news is he skated without pain for the fourth straight day. All signs point to his return to the Senators lineup Saturday night against the San Jose Sharks at the SAP Center but he and coach Paul MacLean were both being cautious in giving a final thumbs up after a 45-minute skate. After sitting Wednesday against the Los Angeles Kings...

Travis Yost: Front Office Changes Ahead?

The Ottawa Senators front office will be undergoing changes in the coming days and weeks. Sources indicate that at least one prominent executive in the team's front office has been or will be removed shortly, and that other moves may follow. At present time, it's not yet confirmed specific individual that's parting ways with the team, but those familiar with the...

Sens spending too much time shorthanded

Thankfully for the Ottawa Senators they’ve somehow managed to survive the bad math equation to start the season. Before Thursday’s games the Senators had been short-handed more per game than any other NHL team forced to try and kill off 16 minor penalties in only three games. They’ve done a lousy job of dealing with those short-handed situations too yielding four goals a...

Sens tough guy Chris Neil wearing battle scars on Western swing

If there was any doubt the 4-3 OT loss to the Los Angeles Kings was a tough one Chris Neil was still wearing the battle scars Thursday morning to prove it. The Senators' rugged winger had stitches in his nose and a black eye after taking a puck in the face and was going to need X-rays to see if it was broken. Not that it would make any difference and it wouldn't be the first...

Senators Bobby Ryan returns to Anaheim

It will be homecoming weekend for Bobby Ryan. While the Senators will play the San Jose Sharks Saturday night a lot of eyes will be on Ryan's Sunday return to Anaheim where he played the first six years of his career before being dealt to Ottawa in July. "I looked up this date when the schedule came out in the summer" said Ryan Friday. "Probably for the reasons...

Travis Yost: Quality Comeback Thwarted in Overtime

On Wednesday night, Ottawa effectively managed to erase an early three-goal deficit to force the game beyond regulation, but Jeff Carter's overtime marker on the power-play effectively thwarted the Senators comeback. It was, undoubtedly, a tale of two games at Staples Center tonight. The first: a brutal opening twenty minutes, where a parade of Ottawa Senators headed to the...
