Slumping Senators look to snap four-game skid

Nov 29, 2007 - 2:43 PM Nashville (11-9-2) at Ottawa (16-5-2) 7:30 pm EST

OTTAWA (Ticker) - It was just a few weeks ago that the Ottawa Senators seemingly couldn't be beaten. Not it seems that Ottawa can't buy a win.

The once red-hot Senators, who began the season with 15 victories in 17 games, will face the Nashville Predators on Thursday looking to stop a four-game losing streak.

Ottawa hasn't lost four consecutive games since dropping five straight from October 28-November 8, 2006.

The Senators are 1-3-2 in their last six games, including a 3-2 shootout loss to the New York Islanders on Wednesday. New York hadn't beaten the defending Eastern Conference champions since January 19, 2004, and was 0-8 against Ottawa over two seasons since the NHL lockout.

Nashville hasn't played since a 4-3 loss to Minnesota on Saturday, but the last-place team in the Central Division is 6-2-2 in its last 10 games.

Thursday's game will mark the only time the teams will face each other this year. The Predators defeated the Senators, 6-0, in the only matchup of the 2006-07 season.
