A southern road trip is just what the senators need to get their season started. Get away from the scrutiny here in Ottawa.
A shaky start is something they have already experienced. Remember reaching the Stanley Cup Finals. I'm not too worried yet. YET!
This team will come together and their grit will wear down other more skilled teams.
I hate that too many people want to distribute scoring on this team. Keep the top line together. No matter who any other team puts out there against them, they keep producing.
Now demand more from the others that are on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th lines.
Keep them together and they will produce more as well. These lines will wear down opposition throughout the game. Give them the chance to!
