Silver Nuggets: Erik Karlsson edition

Erik Karlsson returns to his Ottawa Senator teammates after a weekend away with better players. He returns to a team in the middle of twelve losses in thirteen games (a pair of six game losing streaks sandwiches by a win against the Islanders). The Senators play the New Jersey Devils Tuesday night, trying to extend their seven point lead over the Devils. Save us Erik!
