  • Now is time for Ottawa Senators to trade Andy

    Ottawa Sun "The list of teams looking for a No. 1 goalie this summer will be short, but if the Senators can somehow find the right match they really should deal Craig Anderson.

  • Senators close out season with win over Pens

    Ottawa Sun "Three hundred and 11 days after coach Paul MacLean admitted they were “schooled” by the Penguins in the second round of the 2013 playoffs, another Senators season came to an end at Consol Energy Center.

  • Senators goalie Robin Lehner stole the show in 2-1 win over New Jersey Devils

Robin..." April 11

  • Senators eliminated from playoffs despite win over Islanders

    Ottawa Sun "The Senators’ playoff hopes are no longer on life support. The plug was pulled Tuesday night.

  • Sens captain Jason Spezza knows he could have played better

    Ottawa Sun "Jason Spezza is finally starting to feel good about himself and his game. Unfortunately, it's not soon enough.

  • Sens take bite out of Big Apple

    Ottawa Sun "What a difference a day makes. The Senators took a bite out of the Big Apple Saturday night.

April 06

  • Senators numb coach MacLean with their ‘brutal’ collapse

    Pro Hockey Talk "For about a tenth of Friday’s contest, the Ottawa Senators were spectacular. However, a fast 3-0 lead proved insufficient in their eventual 7-4 collapse against Montreal.

  • Habs roar back after spotting Sens a field goal

    Montreal Gazette "The Canadiens were outshot 15-4 in the second period, but they scored on two of those shots to break a 3-3 tie and they went on to beat the Ottawa Senators 7-4 Friday night at the Canadian Tire Centre.

  • Bobby Ryan loves Ottawa, could see long-term future with Senators "Bobby Ryan could have had a better first season in Ottawa with the Senators.

Still, Ryan seems to..." April 03

  • Ottawa Senators' Spezza still out

  • Playing spoilers, red-hot Islanders stop Senators

    New York Post "The Islanders are enjoying their role as spoilers. The Isles made Ottawa’s drive toward the postseason harder on Wednesday night with a 2-1 victory.

  • Senators still in it, but will need some help

    Ottawa Sun "The Senators spent Tuesday night scoreboard watching.

Defenceman Jared Cowen scored the third period winner as..." March 31

  • Ottawa Senators coach MacLean on hot seat?

    Calgary Sun "Paul MacLean didn't exactly get a vote of confidence from Bryan Murray Friday.

March 30

  • Ottawa Senators down Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks 5-3

  • Hockey shot-protection gear struggles to secure acceptance among NHL players

    Edmonton Journal "Matt Hendricks pointed to the interior of his right foot, where he had once been struck by a puck that left him with a broken bone, and declared: “two screws.” There have been other cracks caused by unyielding pucks, continued the Edmonton Oilers gritty winger during a discussion about exterior..." March 28

  • Senators goalie Robin Lehner battled through struggles like a No. 1

    Ottawa Sun "If there was any good to come out of the injury to Craig Anderson during a critical stretch for the Senators, it's that his backup was able to be himself again. And for Robin Lehner, being himself means not being a backup. Lehner has never played second fiddle to another goalie on the same..." March 27

  • Bobby Ryan done for season, will have sports hernia surgery

    Pro Hockey Talk "Bobby Ryan‘s first campaign with the Ottawa Senators has been something of a disappointment, but as it turns out he wasn’t playing at 100 percent.

  • Senators' Karlsson setting offensive standard

    Ottawa Sun "Erik Karlsson, it seems, is good for at least a point every night.

That only makes his totals more remarkable. Karlsson extended..." March 26

  • Florida Panthers defeat Ottawa Senators, fire assistant GM Mike Santos

    Miami Herald "The Panthers front office was shook up a little Tuesday as assistant general manager Mike Santos was told he wouldn’t be returning next season.

  • Do the Ottawa Sens want to continue with Jason Spezza at helm?

    Ottawa Sun "Jason Spezza's first year as the Senators captain has turned into a nightmare. Will there even be a second?

  • Stars return to win column vs. Sens

    Fox Sports "In its purest form, Saturday's game between the Ottawa Senators and Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center might not have been a true must-win for the Stars, but it was definitely close.

  • Not-so-perfect Lightning prevail against Ottawa

    Tampa Tribune "The Lightning are not putting together picture perfect efforts, but the perfect results are coming at the perfect time of the season.

  • Senators lead in staying healthy

    Ottawa Sun "Another reason the Senators have to be disappointed in their season - they are blowing an opportunity presented by fate.

  • Rangers sink Senators; Henrik wins milestone 302nd game

  • Avalanche runs away from Senators in Andre Benoit's return to Ottawa

    Denver Post ""Benoit from Bordeleau" — that probably wasn't the offensive combination most thought would be the big story line to a potential Avalanche win Sunday. That was the case, though, in Colorado's 3-1 victory over Ottawa. Andre Benoit, a former Senators player, converted Patrick Bordeleau's saucy..." March 17

  • Senators’ MacArthur: ‘Some of the calls were obviously questionable’

    Pro Hockey Talk "Was it an epic comeback by the Montreal Canadiens, or did the Ottawa Senators get robbed of two points? Controversy.

  • Senators' aching Andy still not ready

    Ottawa Sun "Recovering from a shoulder issue, Craig Anderson could have stayed home Wednesday night.

That, however, could be as close as Anderson gets to the ice for..." March 14

  • Senators hope to have their walking wounded back

    Ottawa Sun "After five games against Western Conference teams that damaged their playoff chances as well as their overall health, the Senators are hopeful of having all their walking wounded back for their return to the East, where winning is the only acceptable option.

  • Nashville Predators edge Ottawa Senators in overtime

    Tennessean "The Predators headed into Monday’s game against Ottawa desperate for just one goal. Three in one period seemed unfathomable for this offensively challenged team.

  • Senators F MacArthur to miss Monday's game with hand injury "Ottawa Senators forward Clarke MacArthur is not expected to play in Monday's game against the Nashville Predators with a hand injury but could return for Saturday's matchup with the Montreal Canadiens.

The victory -..." March 09

  • Ottawa Sens forward Clarke MacArthur won't need surgery to fix injured hand

  • Youth takes centre stage and doesn't disappoint in Flames' 4-1 win over Senators

    Calgary Herald "Certainly, there had been a low-wattage feel to trade-deadline day in Calgary. No matter. The Flames’ in-place prospects did a swell job of igniting hope — at least on Wednesday against the Ottawa Senators. The young goalie, in his second-ever appearance, bagged a shutout. That would be..." March 06
