HABS 5, SEN­A­TORS 2

Penticton Herald - - SCOREBOARD -

OT­TAWA — The losses are ac­cu­mu­lat­ing on and off the ice for the Ot­tawa Sen­a­tors this week.

Thanks to a two-goal ef­fort from Paul Byron, the Mon­treal Cana­di­ens beat the Sen­a­tors 5-2 on Thurs­day for the sec­ond time this week.

The two teams played the first of a home-and-home Tues­day that Mon­treal also won by the same score.

The losses are dis­ap­point­ing for the Sen­a­tors, but things could get worse as Ot­tawa was forced to play much of the game with­out Bobby Ryan (up­per-body) and Matt Duch­ene (lower-body), who both left in the sec­ond pe­riod and did not re­turn. Sen­a­tors coach Guy Boucher didn’t sound op­ti­mistic re­gard­ing the prog­no­sis, say­ing they could be out long term.

Duch­ene leads the Sen­a­tors in points (34).
