Scouting the Senators

This is the only meeting of the season between the Kings and the Ottawa Senators. The Senators are in the middle of their West Coast road swing, after stops in San Jose and Anaheim and with a game in Phoenix tomorrow night. After that, the Senators play only one game outside the Eastern time zone, and that’s to Winnipeg. Eastern Conference travel… Regardless of where the Senators have played of late, though, they’ve played well. They had a five-game road winning streak snapped Saturday by red-hot Anaheim, but overall the Senators have allowed only 10 goals in their last seven games. Jason Spezza leads the way on offense, with 20 goals and 30 assists in 50 games. For the latest on the Senators, check out the coverage from the Ottawa Citizen and the Ottawa Sun, followed by tonight’s probable lineups for the Kings and the Senators…
