07:27 AM ET 10.29 | In Ottawa, the operative word is, "frustrated." [The Senators] are in need of answers after a pair of weekend losses on home ice. Captain Jason Spezza hoped to find them by holding a players-only meeting on Monday. Frustration was setting in after 5-2 loss to San Jose on Sunday followed Friday's 2-1 defeat to Anaheim at the Canadian Tire Centre, and Spezza felt it was time to clear the air. "You can tell guys left the rink (Sunday) night frustrated, myself included," Spezza said. "When you get frustrated it's useless. Being frustrated and not talking about it can be a useless emotion so when you get frustrated as a group, and I sensed I was frustrated and the guys were frustrated, that it's important to talk about it so things don't just fester."

Thank God this is about hockey. When I first read the headline I thought Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin were planning a night on the town.

Cheer up. I didn't see the whole game but I'm sure you got a shot on goal last night.

Sure you're not talking 'bout the Caps? That rope-a-dope defense is really good ain't it? Apparently Oatsie thinks that if the other team gets 78 shots on goal (through 2) and are on the power play 5 times they'll be tired late in the game. If I was Holtby I'd demand a trade.

BTW - When sisters are controlling the puck would it be called a Menstrual Cycle?

"Senators hold players-only meeting"

I wish our Senators would hold a 'players-only meeting.' Maybe they'd fix Obamacare.

I hate when politicians get involved in professional sports.
