With the Senators having yet another Saturday night off, Ottawa fans are forced to scoreboard watch with less that 15 games to go in the NHL’s season.
Coming into tonight’s action, the Senators sit 29th in the NHL, four points clear of the last place Oilers.
A few games of notes tonight including the Panthers, Avalanche and Islanders all in action. The Islanders paid the Devils a visit and dropped a 3-2 decision but did pick up a single point.
The Panthers scored a big overtime win over the Tampa Bay Lightning and moved to 65 points on the season, six clear of the Sens. Unfortunately for Ottawa fans, the Colorado Avalanche continue to play absolutely terrible hockey. They lost to the Predators 4-2 and are in an ugly tailspin right now.
Ottawa is back in action tomorrow evening when they visit the Sabres for a 5:00 PM start.
Here is how the bottom five look after tonight’s action.
