8:30 AM: The Ottawa Senators host the Calgary Flames at Canadian Tire Centre tonight. Puck drop is set for 7:00 p.m.
The Sens have been on a roll lately (8-1-1 in their last 10 games) and are coming off of 3-2 home win against the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night. Three unanswered goals from Erik Karlsson, Mika Zibanejad and Mark Stone combined with 24 saves from Andrew Hammond were enough to overcome a 2-0 Sabres lead. The Senators now have a record of 29-23-11 and currently sit 10th in the Eastern Conference.
The Flames travel to Ottawa after a 5-2 win over the Red Wings in Detroit on Friday night. Sean Monahan, Matt Stajan, Jiri Hudler (x2) and Mason Raymond scored for the Flames while Jonas Hiller made 33 saves to earn the decision. Calgary currently sits in 7th place in the Western Conference with a record of 36-25-4 and is in the midst of a 3-game winning streak.
This is the second meeting between these teams this season with the Flames earning a 4-2 victory against the Sens in Calgary back on November 16th. You can watch the full highlights from that game here...
The Sens will hit the ice for their morning skate shortly and I'll have plenty of updates to follow including, but not limited to, lineup changes, players' thoughts, Sens TV videos, Instagram goodness and more.
