    GDT: Senators @ Blue Jackets - Nov 24, 2017, 7:00pm

    Post by wprager on Fri Nov 24, 2017 12:20 pm

    The Senators finish their 3-game road trip with tonight's game in Columbus. The Jackets are on a 5-game winning streak while the Senators have lost 4 straight. If they lose tonight, then the first game home could make it 6 straight losses. Already out of a playoff position (with 4 teams between them and the 2nd wildcard spot) the Senators can ill-afford extending this losing streak. This year's draft is not one that gets you excited about tanking (odds of getting Dahlin won't be great).

    DiDomenico has been waived and sent to Belleville, so Dumont will draw. Both Chabot and Harpur will play, which means Oduya sits. While that's a move I can't disagree with, that's a pretty significant shake-up to an already shaky defensive corps. Three regulars out (Oduya joining Wideman and Boro) means pretty much everyone is getting used to a new partner.

    Duchene is still looking for his first point as a Senator. I have not see any "www.hasduchenescoredyet.com" websites yet, but this is getting a little worrisome. Maybe he should use Paul MacLean's ageless advice and get into a scrap to get out of a slump.

    Go Sens!

    P.S. Bruins (one of the teams we're chasing) are playing the Penguins at 1pm. We'll know, soon-enough, if we can catch them (currently same point total, same games, more ROWs). The Redwings hold down the 3rd place in the Atlantic, 1 points up on the Sens/Bruins having played 2 more games. If they lose (7PM versus Rangers) it will only take 1 points to pass them in the standings.

    Good for him, since he gets to keep his NHL salary. He's not part of our future and it's clear he wasn't wanted league wide.

    I’m not sure grabriel Dumon is not a downgrade from DiDo. I think DiDo had probably a better nose for the net than Dumont.

    Columbus and specifically Bobrovsky have been red hot lately. This is a tough one for sure. Interesting to see Claesson getting scratched, but Boucher likes his vets (and Harpur apparently).

    I have a feeling Duchene will get his first point as a Senator in a loss tonight.

    I’m not. Sens will win tomorrow. This team is good, it’s all about confidence and goaltending.

    This will define their season right here. Can they bounce out of this and put together a long stretch of great play or do they fall further out.

    They're a good team, this might help later in the year and help them really gell.

    Really surprised he sat out Claesson. He hasn't been great but he hasn't been worse than Oduya or Harpur or Phaneuf. I understand but sitting Phaneuf, but Oduya is little more than PTO kind of player and Harpur needs more time learning to be aggressive (they said he'd been playing with more of an edge in Belleville, but he hasn't tried to do that yet in the NHL).

    Very odd decision making.

    That said, Oduya and Harpur were 0, as was the regular shipping boy, Ceci. The other 3Dv were all varrying shades of minus (-3 for EK, -3 for Chabot and -1 for Dion).

    Of course Freddy Boom-Boom Claesson would have been +4.

    This PP is not ticking. It looked a lot more fast and effective at the start of the year. Maybe there’s too much on karlsson be ping the productive guy on the PP
