Senate defections could solidify Trudeau's upper house reforms

  Senate defections could solidify Trudeau's upper house reforms The announcement Monday that 11 senators were breaking away from their respective groups to create a new entity — the blandly named Canadian Senators Group (CSG) — is a welcome development for those looking to hasten the demise of an explicitly partisan upper house. What was once a place strictly organized along party lines has been fundamentally changed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's reforms.

Bagnall: Can Senators break early pattern of historically low attendance?

  Bagnall: Can Senators break early pattern of historically low attendance? This can’t be the start Eugene Melnyk envisioned for his Ottawa Senators. Fourteen games into this young NHL season, the Senators are near the bottom in league standings and their fans appear to be slipping away. The team closed out a three-game home stand Oct. 27 by drubbing the San Jose Sharks 5-2. But just 9,740 spectators were on hand to witness it. During the seven home matches to date, attendance at the Canadian Tire Centre averaged 11,260, according to official game reports. That’s less than 60 per cent of capacity. Whether it’s spectators or percentage of seats filled, the Senators rank 31st in a league of 31 teams. The next home game — on Thursday against the L.A.

Ottawa Senators left wing Anthony Duclair (10) scores on Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jonathan Bernier (45) during the first period of an NHL DETROIT (AP) — Anthony Duclair had two goals and an assist, and the Ottawa Senators held on to beat the Detroit Red Wings 4 - 3 Tuesday night.

The Senators scored three goals in a 5:22 span in the second period to take a 4-2 lead.

Duclair got his second goal of the game and ninth of the season five minutes into the middle period to tie it at 2. Pageau scored on a breakaway 57 seconds later for his 12th goal, and Tkachuk scored off a feed from Duclair at 10:22 to make it 4-2.

Duclair gave the Senators a 1-0 lead 3:08 into the game with his first goal of the night.

Fabbri tied it at 9:57 of the first when his shot from the right circle trickled through Nilsson and was accidentally kicked in by Ottawa’s Logan Brown. It was Fabbri’s fourth goal. Filppula’s short-handed goal with 1:28 remaining in the opening period gave the Red Wings a 2-1 lead. It was his third.

Hronek appeared to tie it 34 seconds after Duclair’s goal, but the Senators challenged the play was offside. Replays showed that Tyler Bertuzzi was offside along the right boards.

NOTE: Ottawa RW Max Veronneau made his season debut after being recalled from AHL Belleville on Monday. ... Hronek returned after missing two games with a leg injury. ... Red Wings D Mike Green left the game with an upper-body injury. ... Hockey Hall of Fame member and former Red Wings and Senators goaltender Dominik Hasek was at the game. He won two Stanley Cups with Detroit. He was saluted on the jumbotron during a play stoppage in the first period
