Players from both the Senators and Canadiens braved frigid temperatures of -13 Celsius (8F) in the third period as did the 33,900 fans […]
Earning a huge assist in the shutout was Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson, who blocked eight shots in 32:55 of ice time. The temperature at the start of the game at Lansdowne Park was 12 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 11 Celsius) for the league's first outdoor game of the season.

If you’re looking for someone to spoil an upcoming function, you may want to give Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk a call. On the eve of the Senators’ outdoor game against the Montreal Canadiens at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa, and on the night when Ottawa’s greats from yesteryear took the ice with Parliament Hill as […]
Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk threatened relocation on the eve of the franchise’s outdoor game. Nothing – not the unforgivably cold weather or the similarly frigid reality that faces a franchise with the second-worst record in the conference – could take from this weekend for the Ottawa Senators, who finally have an outdoor game to […]
Players of the Night: Bobby Ryan, Ottawa Senators: It’s been a struggle for Ryan this season. He came into the game with just as single goal in 21 games but left with two in 22 while also adding an assist to help the Senators avoid a six-game losing
• Eugene Melnyk denied rumors that he was selling the Ottawa Senators. • The KHL initially announced they would be allowing its players to participate in the PyeongChang Olympics, then retracted it. “There’s a discussion around the [Russia] uniform,” said Roman Rotenberg, the Russian federation’s senior vice president.
Chris Neil announced his retirement from the NHL on Thursday after 1,206 games, all with the Ottawa Senators franchise. “Chris Neil exemplifies the best qualities of both our city and the Senators franchise,” said Senators owner Eugene Melnyk.

The Ottawa Senators finished Saturday night seven points back of the Bruins, and three other teams are between them in a division where it certainly seems like there won’t be a wild card team come April.

Drew Doughty and the Los Angeles Kings are a veteran team on a roll. Overtime against the struggling Ottawa Senators certainly wasn't going to faze them. Doughty scored 32 seconds into overtime and the Kings beat the Senators 4-3 for their seventh consecutive victory.
The good news is that they got a point, the bad news is that the Ottawa Senators ultimately lost yet again. Los Angeles handed Ottawa its 10th loss in the span of 11 games. At this point, Ottawa has the second worst record in the Eastern Conference at 9-11-7. It’s been quite the descent for […]
