Last game

More Sens and general hockey news after the jump.

General Sens News

  • Bruce Garrioch wants Cory Clouston gone. (Sun)
  • Wayne Scanlan wonders about the whereabouts of Eugene Melnyk. (Citizen)
  • The tables have turned between Montreal and Ottawa from a year ago. Ottawa was in a playoff spot and Montreal was a bubble team. Now, Montreal is still a bubble team but Ottawa has fallen off. (Citizen)

General Hockey News

  • Bruce Boudreau thinks that David Steckel's hit on Sidney Crosby is still a topic of discussion only because it was on Sidney Crosby. What Bruce, Crosby gets special treatment!? (Globe and Mail)
  • Evgeni Nabokov has been claimed on waivers by the New York Islanders. However, it is rumoured that Nabokov will not report, meaning he will either be suspended or placed back on waivers. In any case, if he won't report to the Islanders, he won't report to the Senators. (TSN)
  • Speaking of the Islanders, they won last night. The New Jersey Devils won this afternoon. They sit four and eight points behind the Senators with three and two games in hand respectively. Oh my. (Devils beat Flyers)
