Hoffman, who missed a penalty shot early in the first, made up for it by backhanding home the third period winner...

Senators focus on D

Now it's the Senators' Achilles' heel that is showing signs of improvement. But apparently, it's still not good enough. Both during and after Wednesday's practice, coach Paul MacLean held more "discussions" than you might expect from a team that has won two of its first three games and allowed just five goals going into its home opener.

Jared Cowen – The Poster Child For a Mediocre Blue Line?

If you were to tell me that Jared Cowen was confused these days, I’d believe it from his on-ice play. A lot of eyebrows yesterday when Ottawa’s media collectively tweeted from practice writing, “Jared Cowen was surprised to have been a healthy scratch so early in the season.” For anyone who watched the first two games of the season, you’re probably thinking that Cowen...

Sens’ Karlsson will accept captaincy if offered

It’s pretty clear Erik Karlsson is the best player the Ottawa Senators currently have. He led the team in points last season and he won the Norris Trophy in 2012 as the league’s best defenseman at the age of 21. Now that he’s a regular veteran at 24 years old and the Senators are in need of a new captain with Jason Spezza now in Dallas, many think it’s time for Karlsson...
