After a 3-0 loss to the Florida Panthers on Saturday, the Senators find themselves mired in one of their worst slumps of the season and face a five-game roadtrip.
In addition the Senators lost two more players to injury.
"We can't feel sorry for ourselves, nobody's going to," said Senators coach Cory Clouston. "We've got to keep working hard and I thought our guys battled and obviously we're missing some offence, but we've got to somehow find it. It's not the way you want to go on a long road trip that's for sure."
