Silver Nuggets: Senators lose again but with a fight; Leclaire still out

The Ottawa Senators offence made an appearance and exploded for five goals. Sadly, so did Johan Franzen. After a 7-5 loss, the Senators do have some positives to build on. Milan Michalek continued his strong play, Peter Regin got a point (three actually) for only the second time since November 15. Chris Campoli also got three points while Sergei Gonchar continued his resurgence and went +3. Still, it was a loss for the fourteenth time in fifteen games.
