Another month has gone by this season and with it went another batch of moments. The shelf life of some will obviously be longer than others, but hey, they all count the same at the time.

Recapping the best of the best of these moments is Gord Wilson with another edition of "The Goodies"

In this latest batch you'll find appearances from Matt Kassian, Eric Gryba, Ben Bishop and Robin Lehner, and a beauty goal from Guillaume Latendresse.

With the Sens hitting the road for an extended period of time, the top women's national teams in the world will be converging at Scotiabank Place to play for the IIHF Women's World Hockey Championship. The usual suspects will be there as hockey powers all over the world will be sending their best squads to play for gold.

Being one of the world's top hockey nations, Sweden is represented at the tourney and got a special visit yesterday when Sens captain and national legend Daniel Alfredsson popped by the team's hotel to talk to them ahead of their tournament opening game against the Czech Republic on Tuesday.

Anyone who follows the Ottawa Senators is sure to be thrilled with only 13 (lucky?) games left in the season as we are inching closer to putting the 2013 season and its incorrigible injury bug squarely in the rearview mirror.

With that end date approaching, the Sens are also seeing the return of several key cogs to the roster equation. Craig Anderson has been actively practicing with the team and Jared Cowen has skated on a handful of occasions. Milan Michalek also started skating earlier today.

The most recent updates from Coach MacLean suggest that there is no rush to have these players back — and really, with the success of the team in spite of their absence it's hard to argue patience — but it's an exciting thought to wonder what this team could do with a few big names back in the lineup.

Given that we were all children once, we can all vouch for what it was like to be enamoured with a particular mascot. Seeing them walk around for the first time was an enchanting experience as you had the chance to interact with your hero and friend.

Even though YouTube is shut down for the next 10 years — good one, you guys! — I managed to procure this video of a young Sens fan seeing Sparty during a Sens game a week ago. It is adorable.

Take a look.

There was a very special guest at Scotiabank Place on Saturday as Antigonish, N.S., native Scott MacGillivray made his first ever trip to catch a Sens game. Scott is an Ottawa Senators superfan in the Maritimes who has been cheering for the team since day one. Needless to say, it was the experience of a lifetime for him.

Scott was able to make the trip as a result of an outpouring of generosity from his community. Local nurses and a men's hockey league covered his trip and stay in Ottawa so he could finally have the chance to see his team live.

"To come here and experience stuff live, it's just unreal," said Scott. "I'm speechless."

This will go down as a 'flush-it-away' game for the Sens as they simply couldn't get anything to go in on the offensive end and weren't tight enough on the defensive end. As a result, they fell to the Maple Leafs by a 4-0 score.

The Sens just didn't seem to have their legs under them tonight and couldn't make up the difference with any puck luck. A couple posts here and shots trickling wide there prevented any momentum from getting going. Costly turnovers came back to bite them in the end and proved to be the difference.

Here's what Coach MacLean had to say...

With six different stops over eight years, it has been a long and winding road to the NHL for Andre Benoit, but it appears that the 28 year old St-Albert native is finding his game at the NHL level.

Benoit played a season high 22 minutes on Thursday against the New York Rangers and blasted home his second goal of the season on a Sens power play, a goal which ultimately held up as the game winner. Incidentally, Benoit's first goal of the season -- and his NHL career -- held up as a game winner as well. You can't fault his sense of timing.
