Silver Nuggets: Thirty-six games to go!

The Ottawa Senators lost for the eighth time in nine games, this time in a 3-1 decision to the Washington Capitals. The Senators now are eleven points out of a playoff spot, as well as thirteen points ahead of the last place Devils. Here are some gloomy links for you to depress over on a cold Ontario morning (-21 in Ottawa and -13 here in the Centre of the Universe):
