Ottawa Senators Results

Alex is back with another edition of the Last Word on Sens Podcast. Today, he takes a look at the recent Ottawa Senators results. Unlike the last podcast, where it was almost all positive to discuss, today isn’t quite the same tone. Since the last recording, Ottawa has dropped five in a row and six of their last seven games.

To help him break down everything that has taken place since the trade deadline, Alex is joined by Nick Dumoulin! To start, they discuss some tough blowouts to frankly bad teams and what the team needed to take away from those games. They also touch on multiple aspects of the team which seem to come back to one thing, coaching. Is it time for DJ Smith to exit as coach of the Senators? Alex and Nick discuss the pros and cons of making a coaching change after this season is over, and whether injuries should be enough to save Smith’s job. They also take a look ahead to what can be described as the toughest schedule remaining in the NHL.
