Former hockey executive and coach Bryan Murray passed away Saturday morning at the age of 74.
Murray was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer in 2014 that spread into his liver and lungs. "Bryan was one of the greatest men that the game of hockey has ever known and also a great father, mentor and teacher," said Senators owner Eugene Melnyk. "We extend our sincere condolences to his wife, Geri, daughters, Heide and Brittany and the entire Murray family on their loss." Murray coached for 18 seasons in the NHL, while amassing 620 victories, and worked as the GM for the Red Wings, Panthers, Mighty Ducks and Senators. Our condolences go out to his family and friends for their loss. Aug 12 - 1:55 PM

It was not surprising that Marc Methot was left unprotected by the Senators for the expansion draft.

That was pretty much expected once Dion Phaneuf declined to waive his no-movement clause. We expect the Vegas Golden Knights to draft Methot unless the Sens can make a side deal with them prior to the expansion draft. Ottawa chose to protect the following players: Derick Brassard, Ryan Dzingel, Mike Hoffman, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Zack Smith, Mark Stone, Kyle Turris, Cody Ceci, Erik Karlsson, Dion Phaneuf and Craig Anderson.

Ottawa has a 0-for-29 drought on the power play going into Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.

The Senators' last power-play goal was scored by Ryan Dzingel in Game 1 against the New York Rangers in Round 2. "It's trying to do things when it's not there," coach Guy Boucher said. "That's being under pressure. We need to be more poised. It's the same as breaking out (of the defensive zone). It's nothing different. If you don't have poise on your breakouts and your zone entries, you're not going to have it on the power play."

If past performance this playoffs means anything, the Senators should feel confident about their chances of winning Game 5 Sunday afternoon.

The Senators have played four afternoon games so far this postseason and won them all in overtime. If that isn't enough to boost their confidence, their starting goalie Craig Anderson, has some extra incentive to excel as Sunday is his 36th birthday. The last goalie to start a playoff game on his birthday was Martin Broduer, who defeated the Flyers in 2012.

Pierre Dorion has been nominated for the NHL's GM of the Year Award.

This was Dorion's first full season as the GM of the Senators, and they've made it to the Eastern Conference Final under his watch. Ottawa finished second in the Atlantic Division with a 44-28-10 record. His best move was acquiring goaltender Mike Condon from the Penguins in late October. Edmonton's Peter Chiarelli and Nashville's David Poile are the other two nominees.

Ottawa has played a patient style in the playoffs and they have made it work so far in the postseason, but in Game 2 against Pittsburgh they were guilty of sitting back too much.

The Senators went a span of 18:53 between the second and third period without recording a single shot on goal. Pittsburgh scored the only goal of the match during that stretch. Ottawa will have to play a more engaged game back at home in Game 3 on Wednesday night.

Sens head coach Guy Boucher says his team is having a hard time getting shots on goal because the Rangers block so many shots.

After scoring six goals in Game 2, the Sens have managed to find the back of the net just twice in the last two games. "They do block a lot of shots," Boucher said. "You’ve got to give those guys credit. It is tough to get those pucks to the net. Much tougher than I think any opponent we’ve had all year. They’re all very dedicated and very good technically at blocking shots. Probably, I would say right now, that’s our biggest obstacle." The best-of-seven series is tied 2-2. Game 5 will take place in Ottawa on Saturday afternoon.
May 6 - 10:50 AM

Guy Boucher has announced to the media that he will not make any changes to his lineup ahead of Game 2 against the New York Rangers.

Not much of a surprise after the Senators took Game 1 from New York by a score of 2-1 on Thursday. That leaves Tom Pyatt, Chris Kelly, Chris Wideman, Chris Neil, Colin White, Jyrki Jokipakka, and Chris DiDomenico as the scratches for the Sens this afternoon.

The Ottawa Senators and Colorado Avalanche will play two games at the Globen Arena in Stockholm, Sweden next season.

The two NHL squads will play back-to-back games on Nov. 10 and Nov. 11. "Like Canada, Sweden is a great hockey nation. The Ottawa Senators are proud of our rich history in drafting accomplished Swedish players including two of our hockey club's greatest captains, Erik Karlsson and Daniel Alfredsson," said owner Eugene Melnyk in a statement. "Our return to Stockholm, Sweden is a truly unique opportunity to showcase the Senators and NHL brands to a larger worldwide audience." It's believed that both teams will head overseas a couple of days early and will have a break when they return.

Before Erik Karlsson scored the Senators' second goal Saturday night, the previous three goals scored by Ottawa players were by trade deadline acquisitions.

In Ottawa's 2-1 win over Colordao on Thursday, Alex Burrows scored both the Sens' goals and Saturday night the Sens' first goal was scored by Viktor Stalberg. Both these players were acquired in deadline deals. Looks good on Ottawa GM Pierre Dorion.
Mar 5 - 10:23 AM

The Senators seem to be looking to acquire a forward before the trade deadline.

Rumors have it that the Sens have inquired about Stars forwards Jiri Hudler and Patrick Sharp, the Red Wings' Thomas Vanek, Jets' Drew Stafford, Coyotes pivot Martin Hanza and Devils' forward P.A. Parenteau. Although the Sens do not want to give up top prospects Thomas Chabot and Colin White, they might be willing to part with Curtis Lazar and/or Cody Ceci. Stay tuned.

The Ottawa Senators are hoping to find their legs quickly after going on their extended break.

Each team will have a bye week because of the players' participation in the World Cup of hockey last fall. Ottawa's break started on Jan. 2 and it ends tonight, as they'll take on the Washington Capitals. "We’re not going to be at our sharpest at the start of the game," head coach Guy Boucher said. "We’re going to have to be able to build it up … the only way to get the game legs back is being in the game."
Jan 7 - 11:32 AM

Ottawa's power play sits last overall in the NHL 15 games into the 2016-17 season.

The Senators have scored a league-low four times on 43 opportunities. Ottawa finished the 2015-16 campaign in the 26th overall spot and it was hoped that coach Guy Boucher would help correct the issue. Chris Neil served as a net-front presence during Monday's practice and Dion Phaneuf might be tried in that spot down the road.

Guy Boucher insists that revenge won't be on his mind when the Ottawa Senators take on his former team, the Tampa Bay Lightning, on Saturday night.

Boucher coached the Lightning from two and a half years starting in 2010, but was fired after a 13-17 start during the 2012-13 season. "That's why I'd love to say, 'Oh my goodness, it's a revenge day,' and the whole big story so you can get a great story," Boucher said. "But for me, I'm so grateful... Steve Yzerman and Mr. Vinik, Julien (BriseBois), I owe them a lot. As a family we had four years down there, a really good life. I was very fortunate he gave me the reins of an NHL team. The animosity I guess people would be looking for, there's none of it."

The Ottawa Senators have purchased AHL Binghamton for the purposes of moving it to Belleville, Ontario.

The relocation involves an eight-year deal with the City of Belleville, starting with the 2017-18 campaign. For Ottawa the obvious advantage to this is that it'll have an AHL squad closer to home. "Hockey is back in Belleville. The people of Belleville are a deeply passionate and proud hockey community," said Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk. "This community has truly earned the return of hockey and I am committed to making the Belleville Senators an integral part of the city. I want to personally thank the Mayor, Councillors and City staff for their hard work in helping bring the Senators to Belleville. This is the dawn of new era of hockey in Belleville and we are excited to be part of it."
