Trying to put on a good show with prospective owner Ryan Reynolds in the house, the Senators dropped their sixth straight with a 6-4 loss to the Vancouver Canucks in front of 13,351 Tuesday night at the Canadian Tire Centre.
In a season the Senators are expected to compete for a playoff spot, the club had a good start in the first two periods of this game, but couldn’t finish on Vancouver goalie Spencer Martin as the search for answers to find success continues for Ottawa.
Claude Giroux, Tim Stutzle, Travis Hamonic and Drake Batherson did the scoring as the Senators continued to be plagued by costly defensive errors that ended up behind goaltender Cam Talbot.
Captain Brady Tkachuk vowed this team will find a way out of this.
He said in past years it “was a little more hopeless because we were just getting dominated and losing. And we were losing by more than a couple of goals a game.
“There’s a recipe here and we just need to find a way, and once that happens we’re confident in our group,” Tkachuk added. “We’re going to be positive in here. There’s no negativity and we’re going to find a way. It’s going to be fun when we get out of this and kind prove everybody wrong.”
