Senators returning home for big holiday stretch

Their long and winding road has nearly reached its end.

And just in time for the holiday season, the Ottawa Senators are about to get the chance to enjoy the comforts of home for an extended period.

When the Senators face off against the Capitals on Saturday night at the Verizon Center (7 p.m., CBC, Team 1200), it'll close out a stretch in which Ottawa played nine of 10 games on the road. Last Sunday's 4-3 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes marked the Sens' only appearance at Scotiabank Place in the last three weeks.

But Sens Army faithful, no doubt starved for a chance to see their team in action, will get plenty of chance to feed that hunger in the weeks to come. Heading into the Christmas break, the Senators are slated to play seven of 10 games at Scotiabank Place, starting with Monday's visit by Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning (7:30 p.m., Sportsnet East, Team 1200).

Next week also brings the first Ottawa appearance of the season by Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals, who arrive at Scotiabank Place on Wednesday (7 p.m., TSN, Team 1200). Closing out the week, the Vancouver Canucks — last year's Western Conference champions — play their lone visit of the season to the capital on Dec. 10 (7 p.m., TSN, Team 1200).

Senators fans can also look forward to checking out the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins on Dec. 14 and, two nights after that, a visit from Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. After Christmas, the Montreal Canadiens and Calgary Flames make stops at Scotiabank Place on Dec. 27 and 30, respectively.

Fewer than 1,500 tickets are available for the Tampa and Vancouver games next week, while 3,500 remain for the matchup with the Capitals. For the first two games, you'll also find a limited selection of Coke Zero Zone tickets available for only $15.
