From the official release:

Throughout the ups and downs of this season with a resilient team that has battled through a lot of adversity, the veteran leadership of the Sens has been praised throughout the year. Now, with the team in the midst of a five game losing streak, the veterans are answering the bell again and addressing what needs to be done to right the ship.

As part of the long-standing core in Ottawa, Chris Neil has frequently worn the rotating 'A' that goes to whoever is deserving in the lineup. He acknowledged that the team has positives to take away from their play, they simply need to get their "swagger back."

Given the Sens' insistence on playing 65 or more minutes a night this season, it's no surprise that the topic of the shootout came up this morning after the skate. Even less surprising is the focus surrounding former Sens netminder and 2013 shootout king Ben Bishop.

There's no getting around it — Bishop was a rock for the Sens in the shootout. He's a very patient netminder with an enormous frame who challenged shooters to essentially tuck everything just inside a bar or leave empty handed. Not many shots went past him as a result.

So, with puck drop nearing and the teams currently tied at nil-nil before the game, what is to be expected if they are still deadlocked after regulation time?

It's game day in Tampa Bay which means you need to get caught up on the action ahead of the Sens' tilt tonight with the Lightning. The Sens are looking to curb this slump while they can and tonight's game against the Lightning should be another good chance to earn a victory.

Let's begin.

The Sens will get a rematch they weren't necessarily expecting a week ago but will welcome when they take on Ben Bishop's Tampa Bay Lightning tonight at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Craig Anderson will get the start in goal for the Sens as they look to get back in the win column after dropping four straight.

No changes to the lineup from Sunday's loss to Florida, which was, all told, a decent game played by the Sens. The process was there but it didn't translate to the scoresheet as they ran into a hot Panthers goalie in Scott Clemmensen who was very much up to the task.

Coach MacLean is obviously happy enough with his team's performance to keep the roster intact. Here's what they'll look like to start...

It wasn't the result they were looking for but the good news is Craig Anderson appears to be fully back in the swing of things. He'll be making the start tomorrow night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

More below the jump.

Having a rough Monday? This should help. CBC Ottawa got video of Erik Karlsson (Yes, that one) skating at the Bell Sensplex today.

Regardless of what this means, it is a very good omen for the Sens.
