Ottawa returns to Anaheim

As the Senators emerged from their dressing room yesterday at the Honda Center, all they had to do was look up to the rafters for a reminder of what could have been.

"You come to the rink, you see the (2007) Stanley Cup banner hanging there and there's obviously a little bit more to this game," Senators centre Jason Spezza said following a 45-minute skate.
Eric Duhatschek had a good piece on the Ducks and Senators on the weekend, and how they've been headed in different directions since Scott Niedermayer returned to Anaheim in mid-December.

Ottawa's 16-16-3 since that point, while Anaheim's 22-8-3.

Marty Gerber gets the start tonight in a game that should really be on television across Canada and the U.S.

UPDATE Thanks to reader Alex for pointing out that Yahoo! will be streaming the game online. I didn't realize that was an option, but there you go.

Its on Sportsnet East as well. Regional blackouts apply I would assume.

Darn blackouts... slapping long-distance fans in the face since the dawn of time.

Thanks Sopcast, for helping to bridge the gap!!

Oh, and 3-2 Ottawa.

Goals:

Selanne
Stillman
Fisher
Moen - trademark Gerber softie
Volchenkov - a bold prediction

scoring in that order.

Local blackout restrictions still apply to the online streaming. So unless you could be watching it on TV, no luck.

Well, I'll be watching the Sharks-Habs contest instead, even if I had the option of watching the cup rematch on TV (which I don't). But hopefully the Ducks don't give the Sens an inch... this seems like a game that the Sens could use to get their game back together if they were to win.

By the way, anyone expect any nastiness by the Ducks that they couldn't react to after the Alfie shooting the puck at Niedermeyer incident? There was talk that there'd be reaction in the first regular season game between the two.
