|SCU Season 2 - Episode 9: Everything Looks Great Until You Get Kicked in the Pills -- SensUnderground Blog : Nov-14-13 9:05 AM|
The first two games in the past week were great, but then all happiness gets torn away:
Habs 1 @ Sens 4
Panthers 2 @ Sens 3
Flyers 5 @ Sens 0
Lots of goalie talk, more line up stuff and discussion on attendance. We’re joined by Jade Fair from the Ottawa Senators to talk about the Sens Student Union deals. You can follow them on twitter at @SensUnion or on their site at:
Kardinal and Pan argue (again) about free a...(more)

|Senators Could Use A Little Shakeup At The Quarter Pole -- Black Aces : Nov-13-13 11:02 AM|
I like to think that Black Aces is occasionally a calm oasis amongst the raging inferno of opinion out there on the Ottawa Senators. A place where Jason Spezza can put his feet up and not get hit in the head from flying beer cans. A place of sober second thought, like the Senate on Parliament Hill, without Mike Duffy throwing those very beer cans (most of them already empty).That?s not the case today. Today is a day where I think it might be fun to see a little hell break loose around this te...(more)

|Lehnsanity Breaks Loose, But Anderson Still The Rock Of This Senators Team.. And Other Notes -- Black Aces : Nov-8-13 10:56 AM|
Robin Lehner played a hell of a game last night against the Montreal Canadiens, and in the process has seemingly converted the entire city of Ottawa into believers. He?s getting closer and closer to being ready as a guy who can be a number-one goalie in this league, and his legions of fans on Twitter have already proclaimed him to be so after a couple of wins.Just don?t forget, Sens fans, that you?re lucky enough to have an established, in-his-prime elite goaltender in Craig Anderson. Rememb...(more)
|SCU Season 2 - Episode 8: Shawn McKenzie Calls Up! -- SensUnderground Blog : Nov-7-13 9:12 AM|
This week was better in results for the Sens:
Islanders 5 @ Sens 4 (SO)
Stars 4 @ Sens 3 (SO)
Sens 4 @ BJs 1
Kardinal and Pan disagree as always and rehash Alfie (again), look at lines and lots of talk on Chris Neil. We also get into it so much that we call upon an expert, Shawn McKenzie from SportsNet to talk about recent Sens news.
Lots of talk from around the league and looking ahead, we also have the pleasure of speaking with Paige Lewis of Panther Parkway - you can follow he...(more)
|Cowen Just Needs Time And Patience... Wiercioch More Of An Unknown -- Black Aces : Nov-5-13 11:09 AM|
Jared Cowen is feeling the heat in this early, miserable, god forsaken Senators season that?s spanned a month but feels like two thanks to a marathon exhibition schedule and crowded training camp that may or may not have contributed to a sloppy disorganized start when the real games began.In Cowen?s case, it?s starting to look like he hurt himself by missing most of camp sitting in Saskatchewan waiting for his agent to make a deal with GM Bryan Murray on a new contract, and that?s on top of m...(more)
|News Release: Senators recall goaltender Nathan Lawson from Binghamton (AHL) -- Official Ottawa Senators News : Nov-5-13 12:14 AM|

|Chris Neil A Pariah on Twitter, Loved In The Stands -- Black Aces : Nov-1-13 10:41 AM|
I can?t seem to understand it. During a Senators game I?ll occasionally scroll down my Twitter feed to see what everyone is saying, maybe catch a few good one-liners from Bonk?s Mullet or the handful of other people worth following. The majority is just Sens fans reacting to whatever play just happened, like an Erik Karlsson rush or a Joe Corvo ?uh oh? moment. There?s fans throwing in the towel after one goal and fans pleading for the team to trade the last player who touched the puck. You kn...(more)
|Vintage Black Aces: Pierre McGuire Gets Canned In Hartford -- Black Aces : Nov-1-13 8:58 AM|
This is a pretty wild read on Pierre McGuire (tweeted by Gare Joyce today), from all the way back in 1994 when he was fired as head coach of the Hartford Whalers. I remember some of the drama that was going on at the time but forgot how heated it really was. If you think McGuire is an intense, polarizing character now, read the article. ?When the hallway curtain opened after a loss in Boston, McGuire was found by the media wildly smashing sticks against the wall. When the door opened after a ...(more)

|SCU Season 2 - Episode 7: Grady Whittenberg Calls Up -- SensUnderground Blog : Oct-31-13 8:09 AM|
This has been an abysmal week on the ice with very poor efforts. The lack of effort flows through our game recaps.
Ducks 2 @ Sens 1
Sharks 5 @ Sens 2
Sens 5 @ Blackhawks 6
After trying to find some answers on the team and roster, we speak with Grady Whittenberg, the voice of the Binghampton Senators. We have lots of rants this week and talk about Pan’s best friend right now - Chris Neil
Another quick spin around the league as we stop at Buffalo to point and laugh. We read a...(more)
|Senators Playing Small In A Big League -- Black Aces : Oct-28-13 10:53 AM|
?What?s our identity??When your head coach says that in public, maybe it?s time to start worrying. Just a little.Those were Senators coach Paul MacLean?s words after Sunday?s loss to arguably the league?s best team, the San Jose Sharks. It?s been a hellish October schedule for Ottawa but that can?t account for everything that?s going wrong. Where?s the intensity from Erik Karlsson? He played one of his strongest games of the season against San Jose but there were still times where he looked t...(more)

|Spezza Steps Over Alfredsson In Biggest Test Of His Captaincy So Far -- Black Aces : Oct-24-13 10:09 AM|
Watching last night?s game in Detroit, you got the feeling Jason Spezza was a little sick of talking about Daniel Alfredsson. After two goals and one much needed trouncing of a division rival, we?re now talking about the new captain, not the departed one.From the day he was given the captain?s ?C?, Spezza probably hasn?t gone 48 hours without answering a question about Alfredsson and how he plans to fill those shoes. Then there was the Olympic summer camp snub, which would have been painful f...(more)
|SCU Season 2 - Episode 6: Mika is Freed! -- SensUnderground Blog : Oct-24-13 8:41 AM|
The big news of the week is seeing a familiar face on the ice. That’s right, Mika Zibanejad has been called up to rejoin the Sens! We get a couple of games at home this week of which some was bad, and some was good.
Devils 2 @ Sens 5
Oilers 3 @ Sens 1
Sens 6 @ Red Wings 1
Oh - and we play against Alfie for the first time.
After the road trip, we discuss some different in game experience at Canadian Tire Center from the games that we’ve been to up to now.
Around the L...(more)
