|Sens Call-ups - Episode 19: The Trade Deadline Edition: Murray Makes a (Little) Move! -- SensUnderground Blog : Apr-4-13 7:59 AM|

Douches 4 @ Sens 0 – thanks CBInc!

We round out the show with some e-mails and set up the SCU Get Together at Big Rig for April 11th ...(more)

|Murray-Yzerman Friendship May Have Paved The Way For Bishop-Conacher Deal -- Black Aces : Apr-3-13 3:18 PM|
Interesting move by the Senators today, trading big Ben Bishop to Tampa Bay for small rookie-of-the-year candidate Cory Conacher and a 4th round pick. You might remember that Conacher was the subject of pre-game segment on Hockey Night In Canada a few weeks back detailing his battle with Type 1 diabetes and going undrafted before catching on with the Lightning?s AHL affiliate in Norfolk last season and winning the Calder Cup. It?s a surprise that Lightning GM Steve Yzerman would trade a Calde...(more)
|Sens Call-ups - Episode 18: Two Wins Means Let?s Go CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZY! -- SensUnderground Blog : Mar-28-13 7:16 AM|
There really wasn’t much to talk about this week – until today! We only have two games to look at, but they were successful:
Bolts 3 @ Sens 5
Devils 2 @ Golden Gawds 3
A couple of guys come back from injury and K-Dawg leaves town. The owner sounds off on Matt Cooke and the injury to Karlsson at a VERY odd time. Speaking of odd – the supplemental discipline inconsistencies continue to baffle everyone.
Around the league, Pittsburgh is grabbing every free ag...(more)

|This Only Happens In The Movies -- Black Aces : Mar-20-13 12:15 PM|
Smarter writers than myself have already run out of things to say about this Ottawa Senators team. After another comeback victory, another injury to a key player, and another two points towards a likely playoff spot that nobody believed they could grasp, this story has so much momentum that words of context can?t really capture it.And that?s probably because there is no context for it. At least in recent NHL memory. You can relate more to the 2013 Sens by watching a Sam Peckinpah movie than a...(more)

|Sens Call-ups - Episode 16: Shields Up! -- SensUnderground Blog : Mar-15-13 7:18 AM|
After a pretty positive week (unless you’re Lehner in the shoot out) the Sens put up 4 out of 6 possible points. Of course the week doesn’t go on without controversy with the Daugavins shootout attempt and the inconsistency and ridiculousness of the instigating with a visor penalties.
Sens 3 @ Rangers 2
Bruins 3 @ Sens 2 SO
Sens 3 @ Habs 4 SO
We look at potential players on the move at the trade deadline, the potential best time to move a goalie and get some ve...(more)

|The Backhander ? Wild Night In Kanata Has Everyone Arguing -- Black Aces : Mar-12-13 9:35 AM|
Let?s not call it a gong-show, but Monday night?s Sens-Bruins game was a pretty wild affair and a lot of issues came up that had people arguing into the morning. Here?s a stab at 3 of the big ones:On Daugavins shootout attempt: Loved it. I?ve been a fan of the shootout since it was introduced in 2005 (in fact, I?d love to see it extended to 5 shooters per side) and every so often you get a memorable moment like this. It was a ridiculous save by Tuukka Rask, one of the best of the year. That p...(more)
|The Backhander - Grim Scene In Sens Loss Sets Off Another Dead-End Fighting Debate -- Black Aces : Mar-7-13 11:29 AM|
It?s somewhat rare to see someone actually get knocked out in an NHL hockey fight, but that danger is always there when 200 pound men start punching each other in the face. Just ask Nick Kypreos. And last night we all saw 6?5, 230 pound Leaf enforcer Frazer McLaren drop 6?3, 204 pound David Dziurzynski with a vicious blow to the chin, resulting in the Senator lying face down on the ice with trainers rushing to his side. It was ugly. No question about that. Makes you wonder what Dziurzynski wa...(more)
|Sens Call-ups - Episode 15: brought to you by Canuck, Pan, and the Ghost of Kardinal -- SensUnderground Blog : Mar-7-13 8:54 AM|
We get together and try out a new audio setup. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work out to the level of quality that we were hoping for, but hey – we’re new at this.
Speaking of new, this whole team being made of young players and it seems that some of the spark may be fading a little in the win column.
Ottawa 1 @ Boston 2 OT
Ottawa 1 @ Philadelphia 2
Ottawa 2 @ NY Islanders 3 OT
Ottawa 4 @ Toronto 5
