Paul MacLean could become the next head coach of the New Jersey Devils.

MacLean's name is being bandied about in reports as the Devils fired Peter De Boer on Friday and MacLean just became available a few weeks ago as the Senators canned him on December 8. It appears that players on the Devils seem to think he will be named on Saturday morning as their coach. Stay tuned.

The Ottawa Senators have fired head coach Paul MacLean.

A replacement has not been announced yet. MacLean was nominated for the Jack Adams Award in 2011-12 and he won the award in 2012-13. The Senators have a 11-11-5 record this season and the club ended a five-game winless skid on Sunday.

Paul MacLean said he is "scared to death" of any team the Senators play.

"All I know is I'm scared to death no matter who we're playing," MacLean said before Saturday's game when TSN's Chris Cuthbert asked if he'd be more worried facing a hot or cold Sidney Crosby. "Whether it's Sidney Crosby or John Tavares or the Sedins, I go day-by-day and I'm just scared to death every day of who we're playing." It's an interesting choice of words for MacLean to use. The fans in Ottawa probably won't take too kindly to this kind of comment. The Senators have lost five games in a row and seven of their last eight.

The Ottawa Senators lost Saturday's game against New Jersey on a power play goal in overtime.

Both teams have struggled on special teams this season. New Jersey's power play was struggling coming into this game, while Ottawa's penalty killing hasn't been very good. The Senators have the 22nd ranked penalty kill in the league at 77.3 percent.

The Ottawa Senators are expecting to have an energized crowd for Saturday's home game against New Jersey.

"Hopefully, anything we can do to help with the spirits (of the city) and try to take (people's) minds off things is something we'll be happy to do," said center Kyle Turris. "Hopefully, we'll have a good atmosphere here Saturday and I feel like 'O Canada' before the game will have special meaning to it." It's been a difficult week for Ottawa and for Canada after the tragic death of a Canadian soldier at the War Memorial and an attack on Parliament Hill.

It looks as if the Senators top two lines are pretty much settled.

Ottawa's first line will feature Kyle Turis between Clarke MacArthur and Bobby Ryan. The second unit will have Mika Zibanejad flanked by Milan Michalek (provided he is healthy) and Alex Chiasson. Ottawa is not expected to be a high-scoring team in 2014-15 but you can find 50-60 point value amongst this group of forwards.

The Ottawa Senators have agreed to extend their affiliation with AHL Binghamton through 2018-19.

"We've been very pleased with the development of our young players who have progressed through Binghamton over the last number of seasons," said Senators GM Bryan Murray. "Having a strong affiliate that gives our players the opportunity to learn how to be a professional and the chance to compete to win each and every night is a tremendous asset to future of our organization. We’re very pleased to know they will be our affiliate for five more seasons." Binghamton is coming off of a season where it won its division with a 44-24-3-5 record, but was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.

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.
