More Questions Than Answers
The losing streak continues for the Ottawa Senators. Brandon Piller and Ross Levitan try to make sense of this 5 game skid. The Canucks were one of the worst teams in the league so an opportunity for the Sens to turn things around, but they couldn't get it done. Matt Murray has not been good lately and that has been a major issue, was benching Timmy in the middle of the game the right decision and what roster changes should we expect to change? We give our SensCentral Standout awards to Austin Watson and you (yes YOU) the fans for staying up to watch that game. Our Locked On players are Thomas Chabot and the next tendy to start.
