Game #22 - at Ottawa Senators

Game 22
Penguins (14-7-0, 28 pts) at Senators (9-6-3, 21 pts)

Scotiabank Place

Why does it matter?
The Sens would have to be considered one of the surprises of the season so far. The Pens want to continue to build on their recent success.

Questions to be answered
  • Can either team generate some consistent offense? Both teams have struggled for shots. The Pens have had a rough go of that lately, while the Sens haven't been able to get it going consistently all year.
  • Will Sarge be able to get back and help the power play right out of the gate?
  • The Sens do not draw many penalties. Can the Pens stay out of the box?
Keys to the game
  • Hope Spezza continues to struggle. He's a Penguin killer.
  • Leclaire has been inconsistent. Much of the Sens success will be tied to his performance.
  • Ignore Ruutu.
