A day off

- February 10th, 2013

The Senators don’t look the same without Jason Spezza.
They haven’t got a threat up front. That’s the issue.
Kyle Turris is a nice player. He is not a first-line centre.
He is not used to the attention. He thrives from being able to play a secondary role behind Spezza. That is why he has had success.
Look, Turris might develop into a first line role, he just isn’t there yet. He has gone eight games without a goal. The Senators can’t have that. Milan Michalek has gone six.
The Senators have lost four of their last five.
The Senators have lost six of their last nine.
Yes, this slide has to stop with the Buffalo Sabres coming to town. The teams behind them are gettting better. Don’t look now but the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers are both coming.
It’s going to be an interesting week.
The scoring has to start.
The effort has to be better than the stinker on Saturday.
Buffalo Tuesday.
Pittsburgh Wednesday.
Toronto Saturday.
That’s the schedule ahead.
It’s a tough one. The Leafs believe under Randy Carlyle. They are much better. The Senators are slipping. They need to get back on their feet now.
