The Senators once again try to end their losing streak, facing off against the Calgary Flames. The two clubs met on January 14th and the Senators went into the game one point behind the Flames. Since then, the Senators have gone 0-8-2 while the Flames have gone 9-1-2. For the record, if the Senators had gone 9-1 in the last 10 games, they would be one point behind the Carolina Hurricanes for the last playoff spot.
