GDT: 7pm Flyers VS. Senators

THis is from the senators thread


Ottawa Senators
Current streak: Lost 2
Starting goaltender: Hasek
Summary: Are .500 since Havlat's injury ... have not beaten an opponent other than the Penguins for the month of February ... 2-4-1 in last 7 games ... have not lost three games in regulation consecutively this season ... 3 pts back of Carolina with 1 game in hand for lead in the conference.
At home: 21-8-1
Focus: The Senators have yet to win against the Flyers this season. They are coming off consecutive losses, one to a division leader and one to a team struggling to make the playoffs, and have had trouble producing offensively. They've recently snapped the bad habit of giving up the first goal in the game, but if the Flyers can do it again tonight, they will force the Senators to show resiliency and effort that we haven't seen in the last little while.

Philadelphia Flyers
Current streak: Won 2
Starting goaltender: Nittymaki (? Esche started last night)
Summary: With the loss of Forsberg, Primeau, Nedved, Johnssonn, Rathje, Therien, and Radivojevic, the Flyers are 3-3-1 in the last 7 games ... 5 for 14 with the power-play ... 1 pt back of Rangers for lead in Atlantic (equal GP) ... can take lead of Atlantic if they win and the Rangers lose tonight ... Nittymaki gave up 5 goals to Montreal in his last start.
On the road: 17-7-3
Focus: With the loss of their major offensive producers, the Flyers are limping along nicely, with role players stepping up to perform, such as Brashear and Kapanen last night against Washington. The Flyers have a ridiculous amount of games lost to injury, but seem to still find a way to cope, and are expected to come out hard as they always are against the Senators.
