The Senators are riding the quick bus to NHL hell right now. They have lost 9 straight. They have won only 1 game since Boxing Day. Serious. 1-11-4 since. Did you know that Jason Spezza was injured in that December 26th game? He just returned to the Senators' lineup on Saturday..a 5-3 loss to the Islanders. The Senators were 9-6-2 heading into their game against the Canucks on November 11. They lost that game 6-2 and went 7-10-3 up to December 26.
The goaltending situation in Ottawa is not so stellar. See the links section below.
Life is so much better in Canuckland. Winners of 5 straight. Leading the NHL by 2 points over the Flyers. Leading the Western Conference over the Red Wings by an astounding 9 points. Leading the Northwest Division over the Minnesota Wild by a whopping 18 points. Does complacency set in with these guys? Well it kind of did against Chicago last game but a monster game by Roberto Luongo and their special teams put the pesky Hawks away. So how about against a mentally wrecked Senators team? We'll soon find out.
The last time the Senators played in Vancouver was March 13, 2010...a 5-1 drubbing at the hands of the Nucks.

-In 1977, Scotty Bowman turned down a job as Canucks GM. (Vancouver Sun). Can't imagine why. He was right in the middle of winning a shitload of Stanley Cups.
