The Anaheim Ducks wind up their long road trip with a stop in the Canadian capital on Thursday night.
The sens are rolling with a three game winning streak but the Ducks have had their number of late.
The Ducks are finally at the tail end of a six game, 12-day long road trip that has taken them from Dallas through the Atlantic Division’s northeastern teams.
Consistency has been hard to come by for the Ducks on this trip as they’ve won two and lost three in the first five games, but haven’t strung together a streak on either side.
Anaheim has struggled mightily on the defensive side of the puck for much of this trip, surrendering 22 goals in five games, including blowout losses of 6-2 to the Stars and 5-1 to the Canadiens.
What can be said, is that this team has bounced back from losses quite well on this trip, grinding out hard fought 4-3 and 3-2 wins over the Bruins and Leafs respectively.
This team has to be feeling good about themselves right now, as they’ve won three straight games and are quietly sitting in second place in the Atlantic Division, just five points back of the Montreal Canadiens.
The Sens might be the most overlooked team in the league at the moment, perhaps in part due to the fact that they reside in a division that features the Leafs and Habs and most of the attention is paid to those two.
Meanwhile, the Senators are just going about their business and getting wins. The Sens’ current three game streak isn’t overly eye catching, with wins over the Devils and Islanders, but they did get a road win over the Western Conference leading Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.
What’s more impressive perhaps, is that the Sens are getting it done with their number one goalie Craig Anderson in and out of the lineup.
Ottawa is a sneaky talented team with a lot of balance up and down their lineup and are a tough out any night.
