The Senators have fired Dave Cameron and three assistant coaches. Let the bloodletting begin.
It went from rumor to official real quickly: the Toronto Maple Leafs have sent captain Dion Phaneuf to the Ottawa Senators in a nine-player deal, and I’m about to hit a heretofore unprecedented sequence of keystrokes here, but the Leafs seem like they have a plan and they’re pulling it off real well.
Senators winger Bobby Ryan helped some kids totally own their dad last night.
Oh my god this is so fun and I have two balloons and I could just FLIP OUT right now
Chris Neil is somewhat of an Ottawa Senators lifer, having played 13 seasons-long career with the team and notching his 900th game on Thursday. The Senators lost 5-4, but Neil had himself a game, scoring, assisting, and wrasslin’, all in a mere 6:17 of ice time.
A statement issued today on the Ottawa Senators’ official web page announced that team owner Eugene Melnyk is in urgent need of a live liver donor, with links for fans to investigate if they might be a match. Melnyk had been conspicuously absent during the team’s run to the Stanley Cup playoffs, and the release today…
A couple months ago, I was dismissive of the Canadiens’ chances at a deep playoff run, disproportionately predicated as their success seemed to be upon a Hart-worthy performance from Carey Price. I take it all back. Price’s 43-save shutout to step on the Senators’ throats was an excellent reminder that it doesn’t take…
NHL discipline czar Stephane Quintal confirmed that Habs defenseman P.K. Subban will not face any further punishment for his slash to the hands of Mark Stone in Montreal’s Game 1 win last night. Meanwhile the Senators announced that Stone, who returned to the game later in the period but skated irregularly, suffered a…
You knew Montreal-Ottawa was bound to have bad blood. You maybe didn’t expect it to spill just 28 minutes into the series.
There is still plenty of room on the Senators bandwagon (which you should not board, because it will undoubtedly career off the road and burst into flames with impeccable comedic timing).
Andrew Hammond's story is the best in the NHL right now, and the Senators are pushing for a miracle. But I can't shake the sense that the headline here ought to be "Magic hamburger doesn't explode after being thrown onto the ice."
What's better than a clean hip check, like this one by Senators defenseman Marc Methot on Coyotes winger Lucas Lessio Saturday night? A man flips upside down, falls on his ass, and doesn't get hurt. No one even tried to fight Methot after his hip check, because they knew it was flawless.
Gustav Nyquist's overtime winner against the Senators last night can't fit into a GIF. You need to watch the full video to appreciate it. The Red Wing got the puck at 1:17, and scored with 48 seconds left.
Canucks forward Radim Vrbata waited, and waited, and waited. Then, he completely fooled Senators goalie Craig Anderson for his 12th goal of the season. Be sure to watch the replay at the end. So pretty.
This starts off just like any other fight between fans at a sporting event, with two guys puffing up their chests and talking some shit while the rest of the crowd waits for something to happen. It escalates quickly when a bystander decides to get things moving with a beer to the head, and then it really escalates…
This week's dual tragedies in Ottawa and Montreal have understandably driven both remembrance and national pride in Canada. On the heels of Pittsburgh's display earlier this week, a pre-game ceremony in Ottawa was simulcast to Toronto and Montreal, providing fans in those arenas the opportunity to participate in…
Ottawa Senators trade-deadline acquisition Ales Hemsky scored a beauty of a goal in tonight's game against the Lightning. The move is lovely, but the goal in its entirety is better.
Way back in November, Adnan, an editor at Sens blog Silver Seven, offered up a snarky tweet about Ottawa defenseman Marc Methot. It wasn't particularly mean, and it didn't include Methot's Twitter handle, but Methot, presumably searching for his name, noticed. He replied with the old "you've never played the game" bit…
