Every time you play, especially against Ottawa, you know they are going to be tough games and tough battles. I think the schedule is made that way around the league and other teams are in the same situation we are in having to play back-to-back games against the same opponent.

But that might not be a bad thing.

 If you look at us, last night we lose a game, and the good thing about it you’re right back against them again and can redeem yourself right away.

We know who we are going up against. We’ve seen enough video on them and know what to expect.

Obviously playing them in the playoffs for two years, their team hasn’t changed that much. We are familiar with a lot of guys on the Senators and regardless of when you play them, you both go in every game with the same attitude.

Tomorrow will be a good test with the home-and-home series.

You play 82 games, there are so many teams and it seems like we’ve had quite a bit of home-and-home games but it’s part of the schedule. But I don't think it's a problem.

We have to take the positives out of last night's game and I think we played well for 50 minutes, and just kind of had a few collapses in the last 10 minutes unfortunately. We weren’t able to close the deal when we needed to. We got caught in a few situations where we shouldn’t have against a good team and it cost us a game.

The good thing is we still have another chance.
