The Ottawa Senators start a tough week with a game against Captain Douchebag and the Penguins in Pittsburgh tonight. The Penguins are a very impressive 22-4-0 at home and 15-1-0 in the last 16 at home. The Senators did rout them 5-0 in their meeting in Ottawa in December, so there is that at least.
What Happened Last Time: December 23, 2013 – Pens lost 5-0 [Our Recap]
Basically the Sens gave the Pens the business and didn't even have the courtesy to spread their cheeks.
– Crosby got abused all game long. We usually have to wait until playoff time for Crosby to start getting physical attention, so this is probably a good thing; let him get used to it.
– No one died for the Pens in this one, so that was good. Dupuis may be out for a while, though.
Penguins Player(s) to Watch: Marc-Andre Fleury.
Senators Player(s) to Watch: Clarke MacArthur. He likes to score against the Pens.
