WHY WATCH

Who is your dad?

Hard to fathom, but the Oilers swept the Senators last season in the All-Canadian Division. We’re not talking about beating them, say, four times. We’re talking nine of nine, and no game went to overtime or a shootout. At Rogers Place they beat them 8-5, 7-1, 6-2 with the results closer 3-2 and 4-2. They beat them 28-12 at home. The four games in the nation’s capital were closer with a 13-6 advantage.

THREE THINGS ABOUT SENATORS

1. We have the NHL’s two workhorses, two young left-handed defensemen, who never seem to get tired. The Sens Thomas Chabot, fresh out of COVID protocol, lead the NHL in ice time at 27:06 and the Oilers Darnell Nurse, who were in the same protocol a few weeks ago, are second at 26:34. Zach Werenski of Columbus is third at 26:27. Both Chabot and Nurse were in the running for spots on the Canadian Olympic team before the NHL halted participation.

2. Oilers winger Jesse Puljujarvi has 23 points and 10 goals but went cold last month. The Bison King have scored one even strength goal in their last 12 games. He has two on the power play. Puljujarvi, who has been with Connor McDavid most of the year, had 37 shots in those twelve games, but other than a two-goal (both PP) and eight-shot night against Columbus, he was too quiet.

3. Edmonton-born winger Tyler Ennis has hopscotched between the Senators and Oilers for the past three seasons. He was with Ottawa, was traded to the Oilers for a fifth-round draft pick at the 2020 deadline, spent 39 games with the hometown team, turned around and returned to the Sens as a as a free agent. signatory.
