The Ottawa Senators will try to win three games in a row for the first time in three and a half months as they take on the Buffalo Sabres tonight. The Senators won four in a row from November 2 to Novermber 9. This will also be the first game for newly acquired Marek Svatos, best known for being really fast in NHL video games of years gone by.

On a side note, the Nashville Predators are currently sitting in ninth place in the Western Conference (albeit on a tiebreaker), so we currently have the 2nd and 14th pick in the 1st round.

Lastly, I spilled hot tea all over my leg today, in case anyone cares. :(
