4. Stat Corner
We once again turn to our pals at @Media_Sens for today's stats. A fairly impressive ended with the Sens 2-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday...
That loss in Pittsburgh was also the team's first regular season road loss in regulation since falling to the New Jersey Devils 2-1 way back on February 3rd of last year. A streak of away games that saw the Sens earn at least a point in 17 consecutive games.

Tonight's game will be available on Sportsnet 1 as well as on the radio at TSN 1200. Puck drop is set for 7:00 p.m.
