Stephane’s turn

- February 4th, 2013

Stephane Da Costa is in town. He will suit up against the Buffalo Sabres. The Senators need scoring. They will turn to him for help.
He hasn’t gotten it done in the past.
Yes, he has played well in the minors.
It is worth a shot to give him a chance.
He might be able to help the power play.
Losing Jason Spezza has turned out to be a big task for the Senators. You don’t just lose the player, you lose his minutes and you lose the attention that he gets.
Spezza gets plenty of attention.
He is one of the top _ and most consistent _ forwards in the NHL.
Now, we will see what Da Costa can do.
This is a big week for the Senators. Three home games vs. Buffalo, Carolina and Winnipeg. These would all put in the category of games that they should and need to win.
They don’t need to clinch a playoff spot with Spezza out but they do need to hang onto one.
The Sabres are ripe. They are struggling and inconsistent.
