These are the type of games the Sens lost regularly last season.
But with Paul MacLean behind the bench there is a completely different attitude. This team believes in the system and when things aren't going their way, they stick with it. That persistence paid off tonight as the Ottawa Senators scored a gutsy 6-4 road win over the Winnipeg Jets.
A little late on the draw today. Have been away from my computer and was not able to update the site until now.
Thankfully, Paul MacLean set the stage for tonight's line up at practice yesterday so we know there won't be any changes. David Rundblad stays in the mix on the back end and Craig Anderson makes the start in goal.

The Sens practiced in Winnipeg this afternoon.
After six straight on the road, the Ottawa Senators returned to Scotiabank Place and picked up a solid, hardworking 4-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

It's Tuesday and the Ottawa Senators don't play till Friday match up with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
It certainly had the makings of a quiet day in terms of Sens news but there were a few stories that broke today that should certainly be of interest to fans of the Ottawa Senators.
The Senators are off today and will return to the practice ice in Ottawa tomorrow morning.
Light schedule for the Sens this week as they don’t play again until Friday night when they visit Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. Crosby makes his much anticipated return tonight against the Islanders.
