The Ottawa Senators allowed five goals to the Philadelphia Flyers for the second time in the past seven days Tuesday.

After their game at the Wells Fargo Centre, the team is now 4-4-1 against teams who are below .500., and 4-5-3 against teams above .500. This would suggest they are about average, and this is reflected in their overall record of 8-9-4. What’s interesting is the fact that some fans think the team is playing horrible hockey, yet, they have not lost by more than 3 goals to a team above .500. Their two worst losses of the season to above .500 teams were not by more than 3 goals, 4-1 to the Ducks, and 5-2 to the Sharks, respectively. In another 6 games against teams who have won more than 50 per cent of their games, the team has lost by only one goal.

In addition, they have beat  Boston, who currently leads the Atlantic, and Detroit, scoring a total of 10 goals and allowing only 3 in those two games.  The rest of the games have been solid wins, or straight up ugly for the Senators.
