The Ottawa Senators returned home on Monday to face-off with the Winnipeg Jets, after a 3 game road trip which saw them pick up wins in Pittsburgh, New York and Montreal. The Sens were flat last night and ended up on the loosing end, being shutout for the 1st time this season and ending there unbeaten streak.
The Sens now hit the road for a 5 game road trip out west with a quick stop in Toronto tonight, as the battle of Ontario heats up with both team battling for points and are in the playoff picture as of today. The Sens are tied with the Flyers for 4th in the east with 56 pts and the Leafs sit in 9th. The Sens have a tough test coming on as they travel to San Jose, Los Angeles, Anaheim, Phoenix and finished off in Boston. This could make of break the Senators playoff push, all depending on the outcome of the 6 game trip. If all goes well this could determine if the Sens become buyers or seller or stay put with the re-tooling process.
The Sens have recalled Defenceman Mark Borowecki and Forward Andre Petterson who has 11pts in the last 6 games from AHL affiliate Binghamton. Another good chance for younger player to showcase what they got and for the Sens organization to determine what needs to addressed as the they move forward
