Dave Cameron doesn’t like the forecast for his Ottawa Senators.
“Right now I feel like the weatherman,” the coach told reporters today, per TSN’s Brent Wallace. “When you got something planned and you turn on the TV and the weatherman is all talking about how sunny it is, everybody is happy, they listen, they turn it up. When the weatherman forecasts there’s a storm on the horizon, they change the channel.
“Well, if we don’t fix our game, a storm is coming.”
That storm may actually have already arrived, based on the Sens’ four-game winless streak. On Saturday, they lost 4-1 at home to Arizona. They’ve allowed 11 goals in their last three games combined, all at home.
“It wears on you. Fans come and they pay their money and they want to see wins and not 4-1 losses,” forward Bobby Ryan told the Associated Press. “You can’t stay in the hunt losing points at home, especially when you’re on a homestand and you haven’t found a way to get anything out of it.”
The Sens (3-3-2) host Calgary Wednesday then travel to Detroit for a game Friday.
