GAME DAY 5: Senators vs. Flames, Feb. 27

by Matt Tidcombe @matttidcombe

The Ottawa Senators and Calgary Flames meet again this afternoon in the middle game of their three-game series.

The Set-up

Ottawa (7-14-1) has won a season-high three straight games after their 6-1 win over Calgary Thursday. 

Calgary (9-10-2) has lost two straight but still remain just one spot out of the playoffs. Calgary has five points more than Ottawa while playing one less game. 

All three of the Senators' wins on this streak have come at Canadian Tire Centre, moving their overall home record this season to 4-5-1. The Flames are 5-6-1 on the road.

Roster notes

No lineup changes for the Senators are expected this afternoon, head coach D.J. Smith confirmed this morning. 

That means Artem Anisimov and Matthew Peca will remain in the lineup after playing Thursday. 

Previous history

With its win Thursday, the Sens improved to 12-6-2 (three ties) all-time at home against Calgary. 

The two teams will complete this three-game series Monday evening.  

Who to watch

Sens forward Drake Batherson has the hot hand right now as he's scored in four straight games, and in five of his last six, for the Senators 

Batherson's 13 points are the second most on the Sens while his six power play points leads the team. He's averaging 15:50 a night over the course of 22 games this season.
