After another disappointing week of Ottawa Senators hockey, there are lots of things to break down. The Sens are now 1-6-1 on the season and have lost seven in a row. Today, Spencer Blake joins Alex as the two discuss what went wrong this week. They start by looking over each of the three games and what needs to improve. However, what all went right or is encouraging too. Players like Nick Paul, Drake Batherson, and even Nikita Zaitsev continue to impress.
From there, they take a look at the Ottawa Senators lineup decisions and if DJ Smith is on the hot seat. Spencer and Alex highlight reasons why he maybe should be, or why he isn't. As well, they discuss Pierre Dorion in the same light and the Sens use of analytics. Alex has worries it may not be the most ideal way they're being used. They quickly preview a busy week or so for Ottawa coming up and what needs to change for them to jump back into the win column. Tune in for all of that and more, with the Last Word on Sens podcast.
