Silver Nuggets: The Age of Lehner is Upon us

What is better than golden nuggets? Silver Nuggets of course! Tonight, the Ottawa Senators take their alleged talents to Long Island to face the New York Islanders. All the focus from a Senators perspective is on rookie goaltender making his first NHL start in front of a national audience in both languages (TSN and RDS). Here are some of the Sens headlines today:

  • Robin Lehner does not seem too concerned at the prospect of making his first NHL start for a team on a six-game losing streak. (Sun)
  • Daniel Alfredsson has not yet given up on the playoffs. Bless his heart. (Sun)
  • Chris Neil is angry and Chris Campoli paid the price. (Sun and Citizen)
  • Corey Locke, the AHL's leading scorer, plays his fifth career NHL game and first with the Senators. He is expected to be on a line with Shannon and Foligno. (Ian Mendes)
  • Game preview. (Sens Extra)
  • Things are going bad when the prediction panel is split in a game against the Islanders, with four predicting a win, and three losses. (Sens Extra)
  • A look into the struggles of Peter Regin, he of the being-outscored-by-Chris-Neil variety. (Sens Town)
  • The Cory Clouston Fashion Review (possibly soon to be renamed), looks at possible draft targets for the Senators. (Cory Clouston Fashion Review)
