When trying to figure out what went wrong with a Senators team that had Stanley Cup aspirations, look no further than a defense that is last in the NHL in goals against.
Seven points out of four games doesn't revive any playoff hopes but all of a sudden the Senators are nearing Toronto in the standings and, well, that would be a moral victory.
In the past six games the Senators have been outscored 28-17. That's a lot of offense, but 4.67 goals against per game stinks out loud. PS: They lost all six. They're out.
Few losses are as symbolic as the Senators' loss to the Canadiens where they gave up three goals in five minutes. With that went their season.
Dear Craig Anderson: If you could find it in yourself to go all lights out like last season that would be great. Being 28th in goals against is a drag. Signed, the Senators.
The Senators got romped in their first game back and then go into Vancouver and TOTALLY redeem themselves. Or, you know, just get a win to keep pace with the team that romped them.
The Senators were probably feeling pretty good nearing the break after winning in St. Louis and dropping one in OT at Pittsburgh, but a 7-2 stomping from the Bruins is a buzzkill.
It's so tight in the East that with one loss on Saturday in Toronto and then after Sunday's games, the Senators fell to 12th in the conference. The difference is razor thin.
Since clawing back into the playoff picture the Senators have lost four of five. The blame can go squarely on the D, which has yielded 18 goals in those losses.
Will Craig Anderson remain the Senators' starter? His .902 save percentage isn't helping a team that's 27th in goals against, especially when Robin Lehner is at .926.

The Battle of Ontario looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. After last season, guess Craig Anderson was due for a game like that.
