Senators snap skid

OTTAWA—The Ottawa Senators are happy to be home.

Coming off a disastrous seven-game, 15-day road trip, the Senators made the most of home ice as they snapped a five-game losing streak last night with a 3-2 win over the N.Y. Rangers.

The victory was just Ottawa's second in regulation time since Nov. 11. And there was no denying the sense of relief when the final horn sounded.

Redblacks have sights on East title

OTTAWA—The Ottawa Redblacks have a playoff spot locked up but there's still plenty to play for in the last game of the regular season.

The Redblacks (7-9-1) host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (5-11) tonight at TD Place with a chance for its third division title on the line.

An Ottawa win would move them into first place in the East—one point ahead of the Toronto Argonauts (8-9-0).

Lindley faces big test against Roughriders

OTTAWA—Things already were hard enough for Ottawa quarterback Ryan Lindley without another giant hole opening up in the Redblacks' offensive line.

With starting quarterback Trevor Harris and back-up Drew Tate sidelined by injuries, the pressure lies on third-string pivot Lindley to find a way to beat the Saskatchewan Roughriders tonight at TD Place.

Eskimos victorious

OTTAWA—Quarterback Mike Reilly and receiver Chris Getzlaf showed why the Edmonton Eskimos are the only undefeated team in the CFL this season with a pair of plays in the fourth quarter.

Reilly found Getzlaf in the end zone for an eight-yard touchdown pass and then ran in the two-point conversion himself for the final score in a 27-20 victory over the Ottawa Redblacks yesterday.

Penguins need to do better in Game 4

OTTAWA—Matt Cullen could hardly find the words to describe the Pittsburgh Penguins' performance last night in a 5-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

With the win the Senators took a 2-1 series lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Final. Game 4 is tomorrow in Ottawa.

“Bottom line is there's no excuses here, we all know it, we didn't play well,” said Cullen.
