Mark Borowiekci picked up 10 PIMs and seven hits during Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Kings.

He fought Matt Greene a bit after picking up a boarding major to kick off the first period. He skated just 12:33 in all. Borowiecki has but 54 PIMs in 28 games.
Dec 10 - 9:29 PM

Chris Neil fought Jordan Nolan during the first period of his 1,00th career game on Saturday, as the Senators fell to the Kings 4-1.

Well that's one way to set off the fireworks. The veteran forward skated just under eight minutes of play for the game and contributed nothing else. But hey, he gave the fans what they wants and that's what true champions (of the people) do.
Dec 10 - 9:26 PM

Zack Smith scored his fourth goal of the season during Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Kings.

It's been a disappointing season for the pivot, who has just eight points in 28 games this season. Can he turn it around? Well, he's done it before at least.
Dec 10 - 9:22 PM

Tom Pyatt collected his seventh point of the season during Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Kings.

Pyatt now has 61 points in 273 career NHL games, so we wouldn't expect much more from him.
Dec 10 - 9:20 PM

Kyle Turris picked up his eighth helper of the season during Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Kings.

Ottawa's top pivot now has points in three of his last five games, totaling a goal and five points in that span. For the season Turris is now up to 19 points through 28 games.
Dec 10 - 9:19 PM

Mike Condon served up four goals to the Kings on Saturday during Ottawa's 4-1 loss to LA.

He made just 15 of 19 saves, including three of six on the penalty kill. It's easily his worst start of the season, let alone with the Senators. As it is, Condon's record drops to 4-2-1 with 16 goals against since joining Canada's capital.
Dec 10 - 9:17 PM

Marc Methot will tag in for Andreas Englund against the Kings on Saturday.

With three points, 29 blocks, and 46 hits to his credit, the veteran defender unfortunately doesn't offer much fantasy value.
Dec 10 - 1:56 PM

Andreas Englund will be scratched against the Kings on Saturday.

Englund is still looking for his first point in the bigs through three games. However he does have five points in 18 games for AHL Binghamton.
Dec 10 - 1:52 PM

Chris Neil will suit up in his 1000th NHL game on Saturday night.

The 37-year-old has 112 goals, 136 assists and 2492 penalty minutes in his career (all with the Senators). "Anyone getting to 1,000 games is impressive, but doing it the way he has is even more so," said teammate Mark Borowiecki. "Compared to everybody else, that guy has got 2,000 games on his body."

Andreas Englund is expected to be the odd-man out in Saturday's game against Los Angeles.

With Marc Methot probably returning to the lineup, Englund will be the one to sit. The 20-year-old has a plus-1 rating and two penalty minutes in three games this season.
Dec 10 - 12:31 PM

Curtis Lazar (concussion) might return to the lineup on Wednesday.

Lazar was injured last Monday, when he took a cross-check to the head from Pens defenseman Brian Dumoulin. The Sens forward is expected to skate at some point on Saturday, and he's expected to be back for next Wednesday's game against San Jose.
Dec 10 - 12:27 PM

Marc Methot (hip) is expected to return to Ottawa's blue line on Saturday against the Kings.

Through 23 games this season Erik Karlsson's preferred partner has but three points with 29 blocks and 46 hits to his credit.
Dec 9 - 8:30 PM

The Senators will go with Mike Condon in net on Saturday against the Kings.

Through seven games and six starts for Ottawa, the understudy has posted a 4-1-1 record with a .943 save percentage and just 11 goals against. Not too shabby at all.
Dec 9 - 8:29 PM

Phil Varone served as a healthy scratch on Wednesday night.

He was brought up from the minors late on Monday, but didn't get to play because of Bobby Ryan's return to the lineup. However, coach Guy Boucher said that Varone could play either Saturday or Sunday this week.
Dec 8 - 8:44 AM

Mark Stone tallied his ninth goal of the year Wednesday night versus San Jose.

He opened the scoring with a power-play marker in Ottawa's eventual 4-2 victory. Stone has amassed 15 points in the last 14 games.
