Senators News: March 30th

-Ottawa faces Toronto (19-12-4) tonight; the Leafs are lead by Nazem Kadri (35 points) and backstopped by James Reimer (12-4-4 2.65 .916).  Ben Bishop will get the start.

Bryan Murray continues to emphasize he’ll do little or nothing at the trade deadline:

I know that we’re not doing much … if anything. I keep watching the team and I’m fairly happy with our young people with the way they’ve played. If something comes up that is of interest, we’ll certainly explore it.


I’m not saying I won’t (make a move), but our kids have played well and we hope they’re going to get one or two guys back. Based on that, our depth will be better, and we’ve got a whole bunch of guys now that have shown they can play games in the NHL.

Scott had the scoring chances in the Rangers game 14-12.

-Binghamton defeated Adirondack 5-2 last night; Nathan Lawson made 37 saves to earn the win, while Cole Schneider (2), Pat Cannone, Mark Borowiecki, and Derek Grant scored the goals.  Here’s the boxscore and here are the highlights.

-The B-Sens play Wilkes-Barre (35-28-4) tonight; the Penguins are lead by Chad Kolarik (55 points) and backstopped by Jeff Zatkoff (21-9-0 2.00 .919).

Ben Blood picked up an assist in Elmira’s 4-1 win over Trenton; the assist is Blood‘s first of his professional career.

Tom Schreier (apparently taking over from Riley Forsythe at Hockey’s Future in covering the Sens–Forsythe hadn’t written anything since early January) interviewed Sens prospect Robbie Baillargeon, who talked about his decision to make the jump from prep school to the USHL:

 I would say pretty much after my second year of prep school I talked to [former Ice Head Coach and General Manager Kyle] Wallack, who was our coach last year and he just told me I had a really good year at prep school and it’s time to move on and challenge myself. I talked to a couple other people as well and they said it’s a great move and I agree with them. The league is unbelievable and it definitely prepares you for college at the highest level.

Mika Zibanejad is the highest ranked Senators prospect (#8) in Hockey’s Future‘s top-50 list of prospects.

-Rumours that NCAA free agent Danny DeKeyser would sign with Detroit have come true, removing him from the potential pool of Sens signees.

Allan Muir looks at what teams need to do to make the playoffs and concludes the Sens need to go 3-9-2.
