Fresh off getting crushed by the Bruins, the Senators head to the capital of the country that won the World Junior Championship. On paper, it doesn't look pretty for Ottawa: They are 6-10-1 on the road, while the Capitals are 13-3-3 at home. The Sens are also missing Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson, while the Capitals are healthy, a big reversal from Ottawa's 4-3 OT win in the first meeting this year. Fans may remember the team being manhandled to a 3-1 deficit after two periods before Neil and Picard scored early in the third to take the game to overtime. The team will need that kind of effort through all 60 minutes tonight if they want to win this game -- and Ottawa can win this game. Pascal Leclaire gets the start after looking good in relief on Tuesday.

No players to watch tonight, as the Senators will either win this as a team or lose.

Let's pump up in the comments thread and cheer on the team to perform better than what we saw on Tuesday. GO SENS GO!
