The Voice of Sport at The Hockey Writers: Can The Christmas Break Cure Hurting Senators?
20-year-old Erik Karlsson is
second in team scoring
with 20 points
The Ottawa Senators head into the Christmas Break on a winning note, with a 2-1 victory in Nashville over the Predators. However, this far into the season, GM Bryan Murray did not expect the team he assembled to be 10th in the Eastern Conference. The Boston Bruins currently hold the 8th and final playoff position with a six point lead and three games in hand.
Murray thinks his squad is a playoff team but the numbers tell a different story.
