The Ottawa Senators lost again. They do that a lot. Eleven in a row in fact.
The NHL record for most consecutive losses is seventeen, shared by the expansion 1974-1975 Washington Capitals and the second year San Jose Sharks in 1992-1993. The longest losing streak in Senators franchise history is fourteen from their expansion season. Where would the franchise record be broken you ask? If the Senators lose their next three games, they will get a chance to break the franchise record on Hockey Night in Canada at the friendly confines of the Air Canada Centre against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
With that history lesson, here are today's links.
