Senators News: January 20th

-The Sens have recalled Stephane Da Costa

Colin Greening talked about last night’s win, “We’re very confident right now. This shows that we’re a very good road team. You’ve got to be able to get points on the road, especially when we’re coming on the west coast and we have a three hour time change … I’ve never experienced it before, but talking to the veteran guys this is a very tough place to play. Coming in here and being able to win, especially 4-1, is a testament to how resilient we are.”  One of the things I like about Greening is his willingness to shoot–something many of Ottawa’s veteran players are reluctant to do consistently.

Mark Borowiecki wasn’t nervous in his first game, getting the nerves out in warmup (Ottawa “I’m definitely very excited.

Joy Lindsay reports that Robin Lehner will get the start tonight against Hershey, looking for his first win since December 4th (he’s on a five-game losing streak).



  1. […] Murray has remarked that he thinks Andre Petersson is Jason Spezza‘s winger of the future (link)–I’ve seen that echoed nowhere in the prospect assessments that I’ve read.  If […]

  2. […] the top three lines.  This reminds me of a some of the Andre Petersson talk I’ve heard–Bryan Murray told Denis Potvin that he expects Petersson to be Jason Spezza‘s future right winger and […]
