    GAME DAY #48: Islanders @ Devils - 7:30 pm - Friday, Jan 22 2016

    (rest vs. rust)




    No time to lick their wounds as the Sens finally return home to face the Islanders.  Last night they had a chance to take over the last playoff spot from the Devils, and they showed how much they wanted it by giving up 5 goals in the first.  It's easy to say Anderson could have been better (he gave up the first four and was pulled before the period was over) but in reality is that they played poorly and the goalie wasn't up to the task of making up for the mistakes.  

    I haven't seen any updates but I'd think that now the streak is over Turris will take more than one night off to rest that knee.  And given past history, I don't expect Methot to be back this quickly, either.  It's not going to be pretty. Isles have been of four four days, so here's hoping for a little rust on their blades.

    GO SENS GO!!!

    ISLANDERS (24-15-6) at SENATORS (22-19-6)

    TV: MSG+, RDS, TSN5

    Season series: The Ottawa Senators rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period to defeat the New York Islanders 3-2 in overtime at Canadian Tire Centre on Dec. 5. Mike Hoffman's goal with 37 seconds remaining in the third tied the game, and Erik Karlsson scored 3:34 into overtime for the win.

    Islanders team scope: Defenseman Travis Hamonic is expected to return to the lineup after missing four games with a lower-body injury. He is likely to be paired with Calvin de Haan, coach Jack Capuano told Newsday on Thursday. The Islanders have had four days off since a 2-1 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday. Capuano said they have to come out strong after the lengthy layoff, something they failed to do in two such instances earlier this season, when they turned in poor efforts after breaks of three or more days. "We had a good hard skate [Wednesday], we worked on some power play and we had a little easier skate [Thursday],'' Capuano told Newsday. "Hopefully we come out [Friday] right out of the gate and play fast." New York begins a stretch of three games in four days before the Jan. 28-Feb. 1 All-Star break.

    Senators team scope: Goalie Craig Anderson could get his second start in as many nights; he was relieved by Andrew Hammond after allowing four goals on seven shots in the first 13:56 of Ottawa's 6-3 loss at the New Jersey Devils on Thursday. The Senators trailed 5-0 after one period and never recovered in the finale of a five-game road trip. "I think we have to flush this one down the toilet," defenseman Erik Karlsson told the Senators website. "We play the Islanders [Friday], and they're going to be a good team. They're going to come in and play NHL hockey, and if we don't do the same, we'll get beat again." The Senators hope center Kyle Turris (lower body), a late scratch on Thursday, might be able to return. Defenseman Marc Methot (lower body) has missed the past two games.

    Let's give up less than 5 goals in the first period please. I'd go back to Anderson, but maybe we'll see Hammond....

    Deadlock detected!

    Hammond "won" his part of the game 3-2.

    Sorry, correction. Last goal was an empty netter so technically Hammer only gave up the 1 goal (when coming in cold).

    Gave the game away. Stone should have had 2 goals, would have made it a different game.
