Both of Ottawa's goals were scored on the power play, which went 2-for-4 in the contest. Karlsson manned the point with Dion Phaneuf, who also concluded the contest with two helpers. The Senators captain has amassed 51 assists and 62 points in 56 games this campaign.

Dion Phaneuf pitched in two assists in his home debut for the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night, a 4-3 loss to Colorado.

Both of Phaneuf's assists came on the power play, as the former Leafs captain traded primary and secondary assists with Erik Karlsson on Mark Stone and Mike Hoffman goals. This could be a sign of a productive relationship on the blueline with the bona fide Swedish star Karlsson.

Chris Wideman will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Avalanche.

Feb 11 - 3:21 PM

Andrew Hammond will get the nod Thursday night.

Hammond is making his first appearance since allowing four goals on 18 shots on Feb. 4. He has a 3.10 GAA and .900 save percentage in 12 contests this season.
Feb 11 - 12:08 PM

Bobby Ryan wants to wear No. 9, but he'll have to wait until next season to change.

The number is available now after the Senators traded Milan Michalek to Toronto as part of the Dion Phaneuf deal. The Senators don't want to make mid-season changes because of the merchandising issues. Ryan intends to help fans with the number switch when it happens. He is having a great season in 2015-16, while wearing No. 6, with 19 goals and 45 points in 54 games.
Feb 11 - 8:30 AM

Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson made 25 saves in a 3-1 loss to the Red Wings in Detroit Wednesday night.

Anderson has been inconsistent this season. He didn't play badly against the Wings but his record is down to 22-18-4. He has three wins in his past eight outings. His goals-against average is 2.84. His save percentage is .914. Anderson has not been dependable enough this season to merit fantasy consideration.
Feb 10 - 10:13 PM

Former Toronto captain Dion Phaneuf, the key figure in a blockbuster trade with the Senators Tuesday, did nothing offensively in his Ottawa debut Wednesday.

The Sens lost 3-1 to the Red Wings in Detroit and Phaneuf finished the game with a minus -1. Wearing No. 2, Phaneuf had no points and no shots on net. He did, however, dish out two hits in his 20:55 of ice time.
Feb 10 - 10:01 PM

Zack Smith netted the only goal for the Ottawa Senators during a 3-1 loss to the Red Wings in Detroit Wednesday night.

Feb 10 - 7:10 PM

Senators rearguard Patrick Wiercioch will be a scratch Wednesday night when they visit Detroit.

The defender was the odd man out making a slot available for Dion Phaneuf. This is the first scratch since December 6, 2015 earning one point in the 27 games since then. Nick Paul will also join him as a scratch.
Feb 10 - 6:50 PM

Dion Phaneuf will make his Ottawa debut Wednesday night.

He will indeed be paired with Cody Ceci, while seeing time on the power play and penalty kill. He saw some time with Erik Karlsson on the man advantage during the morning skate. "I want to come and do whatever I can to help this team," said Phaneuf. "I'm an Ottawa Senator now and I'm proud to say that I'm excited to be an Ottawa Senator. I look forward to moving forward."
