For the seventh time in this unique season, the Sens were beaten by the Edmonton Oilers tonight in a 6-2 defeat, Connor McDavid led by one goal and two assists, while Leon Draisaitl had two points of his own from the dynamic Edmonton duo has collected a staggering 31 points against Ottawa this season

On the net, Joey Daccord was still looking for his first NHL win, giving up six goals in 37 shots. On the other end, Mike Smith suppressed most of the minor insult the Senators had made while he was on the Way to his ninth win of the season 23 of 25 stopped

Things didn’t look good for Ottawa until the puck hit Artem Anisimov was disfellowshipped for a last-minute upper body injury. DJ Smith picked eleven forwards and seven defenders, and Josh Brown returned for the first time since Aug. February back to the lineup

The game was preceded by the Oilers’ annual Hockey Fights Cancer ceremony, where players from both teams wore the words “I Fight for _______” with the names of loved ones affected by the disease during the national anthem. Brady Tkachuk paid tribute to his respective grandmothers, but also our dear friend Brian Fraser, who recently passed away after a long battle with leukemia

In what can perhaps best be described as “Senators-esque”, the Oilers opened the scoring in just 10 seconds. McDavid shot a quick shot off the boards below the hash mark and the puck somehow creaked behind Daccord for his 50th (!) Point of the season

Ottawa replied a little less than three minutes later Thomas Chabot caught Edmonton on a bad line change, grazed the center line and threw a pass over the crease, the puck bounced off Tyson Barrie’s skate and got past Smith to play the game bind

Barrie would put one in the right net after a failed clearing attempt by Chris Tierney at 1:45 p.m. He had all the time in the world to shoot a high blocker past Daccord and restore the lead in Edmonton

Although the Senators, as so often this year, missed a goal in the second half, they remained undeterred. In a power play almost halfway down the field, Tim Stützle fed Tkachuk with a beautiful cross-crease pass, and his 10th of the year brought the game by two apiece

Unfortunately, the Oilers would regain the lead after their own powerplay. In another bad clearing attempt, Darnell Nurse uncorked a high shot that had handcuffed Daccord and the Senators found themselves 3-2 again

Nick Paul had a runaway opportunity from Smith not long after, and Austin Watson couldn’t switch to a sweet Stützle pass from a duel as the Sens saw a golden opportunity to change course the game fell by the wayside

A late Stützle penalty gave the Oilers a power play, and – you guessed it – McDavid fed Draisaitl, who had all day to beat Daccord and send Ottawa 4-2 to third place

Stützle’s rough second half of the night continued into the final frame when a bad giveaway resulted in a goal from Tyler Ennis and increased Edmonton’s lead to three

Gaetan Hass made it 6-2 in a game dangling around Nikita Zaitsev, and Tkachuk threw him against Daccord, who stayed in the game after being on the ice and checked out by the coach

Ultimately, that would be our bottom line as the Sens fall to 7-0 against the Oilers this season

Next up: The Sens are back in action on Sunday evening in Ottawa and will face the Toronto Maple Leafs with a home game in six games at Puck Drop is scheduled for 7 p.m. CEST
