Each Friday throughout the season, Kevin Weekes will be bringing you his Friday Four. He will be blogging about four players, teams, plays, or trends that have caught his eye.
The Senators haven't taken a step back after finishing strong last season. They are getting great goaltending from Craig Anderson, who is 4-0-2 in his past six starts, and there hasn't been a letdown from any of their young players like Mike Hoffman, Mark Stone or Mika Zibanejad.
They scored seven goals against the Dallas Stars on Wednesday, and the next night they go into Denver against the Colorado Avalanche and score five. That's 12 goals on the road against the Western Conference in two games.
General manager Bryan Murray has done a great job assembling this team. I think coach Dave Cameron has done a great job as well in taking over after Paul MacLean was fired as coach in the middle of last season.
