Senators News: April 6th; Ottawa 2, Buffalo 4

-Ottawa lost 4-2 to Buffalo last night in a sloppy game they let slip away.  Robin Lehner made 26 saves in the loss, while Marc Methot and Eric Gryba scored the goals.  The Sens were unable to do capitalise on their powerplay, hold on to their brief 2-1 lead in the third, and had some subpar performances (Mike Lundin stood out in that regard).  Here’s the boxscore; Scott had the scoring chances 15/14.  Amelia thought Cory Conacher was one of Ottawa’s better players, and while he was okay I think his linemates (Mika Zibanejad and Jakob Silfverberg) carried him–something to be expected in his first game with new teammates.  Paul MacLean called the next Sens game a “must win”, which seems a little hyperbolic, but if it works I can’t complain.

Scott talked to Tampa Bay Lightning blogger John Fontana about Cory Conacher who talks about how shocked he was to see him traded and compares him to Martin St. Louis.

Scott also takes a look at the Sens statistical trends which above anything else show how much Zibanejad and Silfverberg are improving.

-Binghamton lost 2-1 to Norfolk last night; Nathan Lawson made 29 saves in the loss and Cole Schneider scored the only goal.  Here’s the boxscore.  The B-Sens play the Admirals again tonight and I’d guess Marc Cheverie will get the start.
