So all good things must come to an end; today Ottawa finally notches a regulation win, a win against one of the best teams in the East. That this win comes partially thanks to an uninspired Ranger team perhaps diminishes some of the relief that the win gives us, but at the end of the day two points is two points.

(It might have been nicer if these two points had accompanied a Toronto regulation loss, but we can't have everything.)

The last three games have shown more promise than those before. More offense, more discipline, and getting some breaks are putting the team in a position where if the opposition isn't on their game, the Senators can win.

Have they turned the corner? It is far, far too soon to say either way -- although they are still too close to the bottom of the standings for there to be much more time to wait.
