Game Day: Senators
Hey, are these guys still in the NHL? The Ottawa Senators, currently performing an 82 game (and probably no longer) version of "Daniel Alfredsson's Swan Song."
The Sens roster consists of Jason Spezza who is constantly at the center of "I wanna trade" rumors, the soon-to-retire Alfredsson and Alexei "Remember that time I won the Stanley Cup? It was in 1994. I played with Mark Messier!" Kovalev, the still very good Sergei Gonchar, and some guy who is married to THIS:
Which is not to be confused with this:
Ottawa has been fighting a losing battle with the Goalie Gods in recent years. They have somewhat reliable minders between the pipes right now with 25 year old Brian Elliott and 28 year old Pascal Leclaire. Both are serviceable and capable of pitching a shutout or posting an open house sign on their net any given night.
The game isn't on local TV tonight and is listed in Ottawa on "SNET-E(HD)." No clue as to whether or not those with the Center Ice package will be able to watch the game, but I will try to update the Chronicle with a link to a live stream if I can find one.
