Pathetic Home Loss To Oilers Puts Ottawa Senators’ Postseason Hopes on Thin Ice

A 4-1 loss against one of the worst teams in the NHL? At home?


25 games in, and the Sens sit two games below the .500 mark, and based on their loose play tonight, they’re just fine with that.

Tonight the team showed absolutely no urgency or sense of opportunity. In fact, based on the casual demeanor of the players both on and off the ice, one would think they already had this one in the bag. 

It was in the bag alright…and it left a lot of fans sucking wind.

The fact is, the Sens are making clear,  emphatic statements that they do not have the drive to get the job done, and if they should come to discover it, it may be too late.

The only sliver of good news on the night came in the way of losses to two of the teams the Sens hope to catch in making the post season.

Dallas dropped the ‘Canes, and the Blueshirts fell to the Pens.

It’s all I can do to keep from calling this team's postseason ambitions dead.

It’s not over yet, but if things don’t change, now, and in spectacular fashion, it will be over soon.
