Ottawa Senators goalie coach Rick Wamsley will be living out of a hotel and then rental home for a little while after his neighbors house caught on fire and his place sustained severe smoke and water damage.

"They have to gut our place to fix everything," said Wamsley. "We have very little fire damage. It's more smoke and water from the fighting the fire. They basically had to go through our place to fight the fire next door." The fire reportedly began when a burning cigarette butt was tossed into a planter box. Wamsley's family wasn't hurt.

Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray has been diagnosed with cancer.

Murray will start undergoing treatment immediately and his battle might require that he periodically spends some time away from the Senators. The Senators have tapped his assistant general managers, Pierre Dorion and Randy Lee, to temporarily fill the void in the event that it's ever necessary. We wish Murray the best of luck.

Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean will return for the 2014-15 campaign.

Not much of a surprise, but there was some speculation that he might get fired after the Senators' disappointing showing this season. That would have been quite the reversal after he won the Jack Adams Award in 2013.

Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean said he was "numb" after Ottawa coughed up a 3-0 lead against the Montreal Canadiens on Friday.

The Senators went onto lose 7-4. This has been a hard year on the Senators and MacLean, especially following his Jack Adams Award-winning campaign. Ottawa has failed to live up to expectations and won't even come close to making the playoffs. Although MacLean's job is probably safe for now, this campaign has likely tarnished his standing with the organization.

The Ottawa Senators need to bounce back quickly after being outscored 13-3 in their first two contests after the Olympic break.

Ottawa is now five points back in the battle for the second Wild Card spot with 22 games left in its schedule. The Senators will face Vancouver on Sunday for the Heritage Classic. It should be a fun game for the Senators and Canucks, but it's also a critical two points.

When the Olympic break ends, the Ottawa Senators will have to hit the ground running with a game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Ottawa is just one point behind Detroit in the battle for the second Wild Card spot. This will be an interesting game because the Red Wings sent 10 players to the Olympics - nine if you don't want to count Henrik Zetterberg, who's out with a back injury - which is both a good and bad thing for them. It means that Detroit will have fewer players that have to shake off the rust, but they will also be adjusting after playing across the world in Sochi.

The Ottawa Senators have inked a 12-year agreement with TSN and RDS.

The two will hold the regional broadcasting rights for the Senators. TSN will cover at least 52 Senators contests per campaign while RDS will host at least 40 games. Meanwhile, Sportsnet and TVA Sports will air Senators games nationally in Canada.

Ottawa has announced the signing of GM Bryan Murray to a two-year contract extension.

He was also named him president of hockey operations for the Senators. "I am very pleased to have Bryan remain here in Ottawa for the next four years," owner Eugene Melnyk said in a statement. "Without question Bryan stands among the best general managers in the National Hockey League. Our drafting success and the emergence of so many young, dynamic players within our organization is a testament to Bryan's leadership and wealth of hockey knowledge."

Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray is close to signing a contract extension.

Murray isn't looking to slow down at the age of 71. "It's a great business to be in," he said. "We think we have a real growing franchise here, with a lot of kids in the program and on the way up, so it would be hard (to leave). There's no question there's a time (for retirement), but hopefully this isn't my time." As he alluded to, it helps that the Senators are a franchise on the upswing that could be serious Cup contenders in a couple years.

The Ottawa Senators will host an outdoor game...eventually.

"Ottawa is going to get one," NHL COO John Collins said. "It's a great market. We had a great all-star experience (in 2012). It's just a matter of picking a date to commit to it." It might occur during the 25th anniversary of the Ottawa Senators in 2017. The event will likely be that year's Heritage Classic and

Ottawa bench boss Paul MacLean ripped into his players following Wednesday's 5-2 loss to New Jersey.

"There's a lack of focus, there's a lack of leadership, there's a lack of preparation, just a lack of wanting to play in the National Hockey League and be a team that is willing to do what it takes to be elite," MacLean said. "We're a long, long way from being an elite team in the league." The Senators have a 4-4-2 record in their last 10 outings. Ottawa returns to action Thursday night when they host the Florida Panthers.

The Ottawa Senators own a dismal 4-8-2 record on home ice so far this season.

The Sens own a great power play on the road (second in the league), but at home they have struggled with the man advantage and rank 26th overall. The team is feeling the pressure of playing in front of their own crowd and every mistake compounds the issue.

The Ottawa Senators have named Paul Beirne as their new executive vice-president of ticketing.

Beirne previously worked for Toronto Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment as the vice-president of business operations for Toronto FC. The Senators have dealt with both attendance and financial issues in recent years, which is probably part of the reason why the team lost captain Daniel Alfredsson.

Ottawa was 0-for-5 with the man advantage in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Ottawa now has a 12.5% power-play conversion rate, which is just 23rd in the NHL. The Senators were also lackluster with the man advantage last season, but they were missing Erik Karlsson, Jason Spezza, and Milan Michalek for significant chunks of the season. With those three healthy and the addition of Bobby Ryan, the Senators should be a solid power-play team in 2013-14 despite their sluggish start.
