Zach Smith, Mika Zibanejad, Bobby Ryan, and Curtis Lazar all scored, and Mark Stone had two goals. They had another high-scoring night on February 8 when they beat the Lightning 5-1, thanks to goals from Smith, Shane Prince, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, and another two from Stone. Smith scored against the Red Wings, but it was not enough to get the team to rally and take the game. You can still get tickets to the Senators' next game on the 13 against the Blue jackets for $37 and up.
2/4/16 - The Ottawa Senators were on the losing end of high-scoring game against the Edmonton Oilers on February 4. The Oilers took control from early in the game, ending the first period ahead 3-1. Mike Hoffman got a power play goal at 14 minutes of the period to keep the Senators in the game. Mark Stone added a goal six minutes into the second period to get the game within one. Then, the Oilers took off, scoring four more times while the Senators were unable to get another goal. The Senators will look to break their current three game losing streak when they host the Maple Leafs on the 6. You can still get tickets to catch the action in person for $63 and up.
1/28/16 - Erik Karlsson is proud to play for the Ottawa Senators, but some of his recent remarks may have ruffled a few feathers. He cited money issues as a reason the team plays the way it does, calling the Sens a “budget team.” Ottawa has one of the lowest payrolls in the league, and Karlsson, who is a captain for the team, commented that the lack of high-profile players means that victories are sometimes grinded out. Though you won’t see as many flashy goals or fancy footwork, sitting in for a Senators game is great fun. They’ll be at home this Thursday, Feb. 4, against the Edmonton Oilers. Get your seats today starting at $35.
1/21/16 - The Ottawa Senators are the last team in the Atlantic Division that is still competitive for the number one position, being number six overall. Despite their low ranking, they are just four wins behind the top team, the Florida Panthers. It is comforting to think that the Senators could be in the lead in as little as a week’s time, but they are going to have to straighten out their recent record first. They have two recent victories against the Los Angeles Kings and the San Jose Sharks, but they also lost against the New Jersey Devils with 3-6. Luckily, they have a three-game home series starting now, so get your tickets for the New York Rangers game on January 24th.
1/14/16 - For the majority of Wednesday’s game against Anaheim, the Ottawa Senators played consistently, maintaining a 1-0 lead. The third period was a different story, however, as they allowed their opponents to score three goals in the final minutes of an eventual 3-1 loss. The disappointment was made all the worse by the fact that they had been completely smashed by the Capitals 7-1 just a few days previously. The Atlantic Division is undergoing some major shifting as of late, and the No. 6 Sens have to figure out what’s going on before they lose their chance at a playoff spot. They’ll play a three-game road stretch before heading home on Friday, Jan. 22, to face the Islanders. Get tickets now for only $17 and up.
1/7/16 - A mere eight points separate the top five teams in the Atlantic Division, so the Ottawa Senators can’t be too worried about their current fifth-place position. The Sens stopped the three-game losing streak which wrapped up 2015, scoring a 3-2 OT decision over the St. Louis Blues. Bobby Ryan led the way for Ottawa with two goals and an assist, including the game-winning score in overtime. The Senators showed mettle in the victory, rallying on two separate occasions to finally bring home the W, which was particularly helpful on a night where three division rivals took losses and slipped in the standings. Next up is Bruins at Senators on Saturday night—get your seats from $19 and up!
12/31/15 - With all their recent matchups alternating between home and away games, the Ottawa Senators have not been able to start a winning streak. They have won two of their last five matches, against the San Jose Sharks and, most recently, against the Boston Bruins. When they took on the Bruins, the Senators managed to shut them out in the first and third periods, while scoring three times, bringing the final score to 1-3. From here, the Senators have several more away matches, but they will be playing two consecutive home games starting on January 7th. They will host the Florida Panthers and have a rematch with the Bruins. Get your tickets now.
12/22/15 - Sunday was a night that the Ottawa Senators would just like to forget. Not only did the team take a 5-2 beating from the Tampa Bay Lightning, but they also lost three players due to injury and misconduct. Mark Borowiecki was ejected just two minutes in after delivering an illegal hit, and both Bobby Ryan and Cody Ceci got hurt not long after that. Being down so many players meant that the rest of the team had to put in more minutes than they were used to, and exhaustion played a role in the loss. The Sens will be on the road to face the Panthers on Tuesday, Dec. 22 and will return to the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa on Sunday to welcome the Bruins.
12/17/15 - The Ottawa Senators had a fantastic game on Monday night. Not only were they able to take out the formidable Los Angeles Kings, ranked first place in the Pacific Division, they did it all with the support of the home crowd behind them. The Senators defeated the Kings 5 – 3 at Canadian Tire Centre, piling on a whopping four goals in the second period alone to send the reigning first place team packing. Catch Ottawa at their next home game on Friday against the San Jose Sharks and find out if they’ll be able to keep their playoff dreams alive. Tickets are currently on sale and available for $17 and up.
12/10/15 - Can the Ottawa Senators get any traction going? It’s hard to say after their performance in the last few games. While the Senators looked fantastic on Tuesday night, defeating the Florida Panthers 4 – 2 in a come-from-behind win, they had lost their previous game to the New York Rangers. Ottawa has been up and down ever since their epic winning streak came to an end last month. Come find out if they can regain control of their season this Thursday when they face the Tampa Bay Lightning on the road. The Senators’ next home game is Monday, December versus the Los Angeles Kings. Tickets are currently available for $11 and up.
12/3/15 - It feels like the four-game winning streak the Ottawa Senators is ancient history after their last two games. The Senators lost to the Arizona Coyotes on the road on Saturday, falling to their opponent 3 – 4. After that, they returned home to face the Philadelphia Flyers and lost again, this time 2 – 4. They have a tough schedule ahead of them, and it kicks off with the visiting Chicago Blackhawks tomorrow night at Canadian Tire Centre. Come find out if the Senators can break their losing streak or if they’ll slide to 0 – 3. Tickets to tomorrow night’s match against the Blackhawks currently start as low as $30. Don’t miss it!
11/26/15 - Can anyone score a goal against the Ottawa Senators? It sure doesn’t seem like it after the last two games. The Senators beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3 – 0 on Thursday night, and then proceeded to dominate the Philadelphia Flyers 4 – 0 on Saturday. Both wins have come at home, which has been a serious treat for fans. It’s only fair that they now hit the road, and they will do so for the next three games. Catch the Senators against the Dallas Stars tonight, followed by the Colorado Avalanche tomorrow night, and the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday. Tickets to the next home game against the Philadelphia Flyers start at $8.
11/19/15 - After losing by one goal in a shootout to New York on Saturday evening, the Ottawa Senators were looking for a better outcome as they hosted the Red Wings Monday night. This time the fate was decided in three-on-three overtime rather than in a shootout, but the ultimate outcome was the same. Detroit bested Ottawa by one goal, with a final score of 4-3. As the Sens head in to practice this week, puck possession will probably be a top priority. Hopefully they can work out some of the problems before facing the Blue Jackets on Thursday (Nov. 19). Get your tickets to watch the Senators play at the Canadian Tire Centre for only $14!
11/12/15 - It’s been a tough few days for the Ottawa Senators, but the news isn’t all bad. After coming close to taking down the Rangers, they lost to the New York team in a shootout. The 2-1 final score was disappointing, but even more so was the news that Andrew Hammond, goalie for the Sens, got injured in practice on Sunday. That’s hard news for a team who relied on Hammond to make 33 saves in a Thursday victory against the Canucks. For now, they will rely on backup Matthew O’Connor to step in. Ottawa is in the middle of a five-game home stretch and is set to take on the Red Wings on Nov. 16 and the Blue Jackets on Nov. 19 at the Canadian Tire Center.
11/5/15 - The Ottawa Senators don’t seem to mind being the visiting team at all. They have been quite successful on the road so far this season, the most recent being a visit to Montreal Tuesday evening. Beating the Canadiens 2-1 in overtime wasn’t easy, but they did it. It only took Kyle Turris 34 seconds to score the winning goal in the extra time. “We find ways to win games, especially on the road and that’s hard to do,” said goalie Craig Anderson, who had 36 stops overall. The Senators are in 2nd place in the Atlantic Division. They will play a couple more games on the road before returning home to face the Canucks on Nov. 12.
10/29/15 - Get out your Spartacat costumes or your favorite hockey jerseys! The Ottawa Senators are hosting a Halloween night game this Saturday, Oct. 31, against Detroit. They are hoping to redeem themselves after Wednesday evening, when they played a sloppy game against the Flames. Despite ultimately coming out with a win, Coach Dave Cameron was not happy. “My biggest concern is the lack of energy. I’m not sure what it is,” he remarked after the game. Hopefully, the Senators can find a little more oomph this weekend as they are hoping to scare away the competition. Purchase your tickets for Saturday evening’s game at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa today for just $14!
10/22/15 - It’s been a week of ups, downs and in-betweens for the Ottawa Senators. They got a nice win against the Blue Jackets, lost to the Penguins in a shut out, and, most recently, were beat by the Predators after a tie forced a shootout. Mike Hoffman finally scored his first goal of the season against the Jackets and also played well versus the Predators, getting one assist and two goals. The Senators will be without defenseman Marc Method and forward Clarke MacArthur this Thursday when they take on the Devils at home, as both have concussions. Get your tickets for the Oct. 22 game at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa from us today!
10/13/15 - The Ottawa Senators are likely still recovering from Saturday’s brutal 3 – 1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens. They had just won their previous game against the Toronto Maple Leafs in an exhilarating 5 – 4 finish, and did so on the road. The game was tied 4 – 4 going into overtime, with neither team able to score. A shootout followed, where the Senators were able to beat the Maple Leafs 5 – 4. It was a hard earned victory, which is what makes Saturday’s loss so disheartening. The Senators will now hit the road to face the Columbus Blue Jackets before returning home to play the Nashville Predators on Saturday, October 17.
10/8/15 - The Ottawa Senators beat the Buffalo Sabres in their season opener on October 8. Kyle Turniss had two goals, one in the first minute of play and another in the second period. Mike Hoffman and Mark Stone assisted in both goals. Late in the third period, Curtis Lazar scored an empty net goal with just over a minute left in the game. Mika Zibanejad and Bobby Ryan assisted on his goal. The Senators will look to maintain the momentum as they continue their season. They next play the Toronto Maple Leafs on October 10 in Toronto. Fans can still get tickets to see that game, as well as all the rest in the 2015-16 NHL season. Ticket prices start at $83.
9/17/15 - They surprised many around the league when they pushed their way into the postseason last year, but the Ottawa Senators know they’re no fluke. After taking the Montreal Canadiens to six games in the first round, the Senators were sent packing, doomed to another summer of watching the final rounds from home. It was announced on Thursday that Sens owner Eugene Melnyk has placed Daniel Alfredsson in the role of senior advisor of hockey operations, a move which figures to have ripple effects throughout the organization for 2015 and beyond. Will the impact be positive, or will Ottawa once again find themselves scrapping for a Wild Card berth? Pick up preseason tickets now and get your first look at this year’s Senators! They’ll host Toronto on Monday evening and you can get seats from $17!
4/14/15 - They were forced to battle tooth and nail, but the Ottawa Senators finally eked into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, finishing just points ahead of the Boston Bruins for the final wild card spot. They will enter into the first round of postseason play versus the powerful Montreal Canadiens, who finished second place overall in the regular season. However, the Senators took the series 3-1 including both games on their home ice. Can they steal a game in Montreal to earn the advantage in the playoff opener? They’ll have to get a few goals past Carey Price if they wish to succeed, and will count on Erik Karlsson’s outstanding two-way play to help guide them to a win. NHL playoff action comes to the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa on April 19th, and tickets are on sale now starting at $178!
4/9/15 - With two games remaining in the regular season, the Ottawa Senators will likely have to win out if they hope to sneak into the postseason over Boston, who hold key tiebreakers over the Sens.

4/2/15 - The Ottawa Senators have a game in hand on Boston in the race for the final wild-card position in the Eastern Conference, but the Ottawa Senators don’t have much time to make it up. The Sens are three points back of the Bruins with six games remaining in the regular season.

3/18/15 - With a three-game winning streak and 11 victories in their last 13 games, the Ottawa Senators are threatening the Boston Bruins for the final wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. Boston currently holds a five-point advantage in the standings, and has gone 7-2-1 in their last 10 games, keeping Ottawa’s playoff aspirations in check. The Senators are hoping for the same type of net protection that Andrew Hammond has provided for them over the past month, allowing multiple goals only four times in regulation over the span of 11 games. Ottawa pays a visit to Carolina to take on the Hurricanes on Tuesday evening, and you can get great seats at PNC Arena starting at just $8! Come out and enjoy the kind of excitement only late-season NHL hockey can provide!
3/5/15 - Could the Ottawa Senators still sneak into the Stanley Cup playoffs?

2/26/15 - Now that provincial rival Toronto has apparently bottomed out, the Ottawa Senators have pushed into sixth place in the Atlantic Division, seven points ahead of the Maple Leafs.

2/20/15 - Despite spending most of the month of February at home, the Ottawa Senators have failed to take advantage of home ice, winning just twice at home against four losses. Overall the Senators have dropped five of eight in the month of February and six of their last 10 overall.
2/12/15 - It took a trip to Buffalo, but the Ottawa Senators snapped a three-game losing streak earlier in the week with that 2-1 win over the Sabres. The Sens are currently in sixth place in the Atlantic Division, eight points back of Florida and just a point clear of provincial rival Toronto.

1/29/15 - One of the few teams who has yet to play after the All-Star break, the Ottawa Senators are looking to string together back to back wins for the first time since the beginning of the year. The Sens closed out December with a win over Buffalo, followed a few days later with an overtime victory over Boston.
1/15/15 - After starting off the year with a big win over Boston, the Ottawa Senators have dropped four of their last five games. The only win during this time was a road victory over a struggling Arizona squad; however, the Sens are a full 11 points ahead of last place Buffalo.
1/8/15 - It’s getting tough for the Ottawa Senators, who’ve dropped their last two and have fallen into seventh place in the Atlantic Division. After opening 2015 with a win, the Sens took a tough home loss to division leading Tampa Bay, followed by a shootout loss to Philadelphia.

12/4/14 - After a long career with the Ottawa Senators, former top-line forward Daniel Alfredsson announced his retirement from the league on Thursday.

11/20/14 - The NHL held its general managers’ meeting this week in Toronto, and Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray is insisting there will be trades made to get the Sens into the playoffs.

11/13/14 - Among the teams in the Atlantic Division who are remaining competitive, the Ottawa Senators find themselves at the back of that lead pack. The Sens are currently sixth out of the eight teams in the division; their 18 points puts them six back of division leaders Tampa Bay.

Score Ottawa Senators tickets and see if Erik Karlsson, Bobby Ryan and Co. can steal a playoff seed in the Eastern Conference!

The Ottawa Senators have just eight regular-season games remaining at Canadian Tire Centre.

2/4/14 – The Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Senators last night in overtime 2-1 at CONSOL Energy Center. It was a memorable night for Pens goalie Marc-Andrew Fleury who robbed defenseman Erik Karlsson of a goal with an insane glove save. Ottawa will look for an energy surge as they prepare for a game in St. Louis tonight. The last time the two met, Senators’ Cody Ceci scored unassisted in overtime to give Ottawa the win.

One more Original Six franchise has joined the Ottawa Senators in the Atlantic Division, the Detroit Red Wings. What does that mean for the Senators? For one, they’ll play Detroit and former teammate Daniel Alfredsson more frequently which should spark old rivalries to re-emerge. Following the loss of longtime captain Alfredsson, the Senators acquired star forward Bobby Ryan from the Anaheim Ducks, forward Clarke MacArthur, and defenceman Joe Corvo.
Last season, the Senators knocked out the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 6-1 victory in Game 5. They would advance to play the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round but would eventually be sent home. With frequent visits to the postseason, it is no surprise that attendance numbers are one of the highest in the League and Ottawa Senators tickets prices keep increasing. In the past three years prices have steadily increased 22% each season – averaging $73 (2011), $89 (2012), and $109 (2013). It’ll cost you almost double to see the Ottawa Senators on the road (avg. $198).
The most expensive game at Canadian Tire Centre this season is against the Montreal Canadiens (4/14). The next, Battle of Ontario Ottawa Senators vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (4/12) averaging $197. Games against rival Buffalo Sabres are much cheaper. Fans will spend an average of $88 (2/6) or $78 (12/12) on Ottawa hockey tickets. One must-see road game is the final of six NHL outdoor games which will involve the Senators and Vancouver Canucks in the Heritage Classic (3/2 at BC Place).
