(SportsNetwork.com) - The Ottawa Senators will try to record consecutive wins for the first time since early February when they welcome the sliding Nashville Predators for tonights clash at Canadian Tire Centre. Watch the Senators vs. Predators live on TSN starting at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The Senators ended a two-game slide by capping a four-game road trip with Saturdays 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets. It was only the second win in the last six games for Ottawa, which last posted consecutive victories when it beat St. Louis and Buffalo on Feb. 4 and 6, respectively. Ottawa has made the playoffs in each of the past two seasons and is trying desperately to get into the Eastern Conference postseason picture for 2014. The Sens are currently four points out of a playoff spot in the East. Eric Gryba, Kyle Turris and Mike Hoffman tallied in the second period for Ottawa, which was able to hold on for Saturdays win despite a ferocious attack by the Jets over the closing 20 minutes. Milan Michalek added a goal and two assists for the Senators, who managed a split of their four-game Canadian road swing after dropping the previous two. Ales Hemsky picked up three helpers and Jared Cowen also tallied to back a 46- save effort from Craig Anderson. The Senators goaltender stopped all 22 shots he faced in the third period when the Jets outshot Ottawa by a 22-7 margin. "No lead is safe until the game is over and that was the case tonight," said Ottawa head coach Paul MacLean. "Our goaltender really held the fort for us there at the end." The Senators are playing four of their next five games at home, but the club is just 13-12-5 in Canadas capital city this season. Ottawa has won three straight over the Predators and has won four of the last five meetings in this series. Nashville also has dropped four of its past six road games in this matchup and the club enters Monday with an 11-12-6 away record this season. Nashville recently went 1-5-0 on a six-game homestand and lost the final four tests of that residency. The Predators have scored a total of three goals during the current four-game slide and they were shut out 1-0 by Columbus on Saturday. The Predators fired 28 shots at Sergei Bobrovsky on Saturday, but the Blue Jackets netminder turned aside every one. Artem Anisimov tallied the games lone goal with 6:25 left in the third period. Anisimov entered the neutral zone on the rush and dropped a pass back to James Wisniewski. The defenseman quickly pushed the puck back up to Anisimov, who rushed in on net with a power move and backhanded a shot past Nashville netminder Pekka Rinne. Rinne turned aside 35 shots, but received no offensive support as the Predators lost for the seventh time in their last eight contests. "We played strong as a team, we never quit," said Rinne. "Its a good sign, but obviously right now the only thing we care about is getting points." Nashville is kicking off a three-game road trip tonight and will play seven of its next eight tilts away from Music City. The Predators are 10 points out of a postseason spot in the West and could be headed for a second straight season out of the playoffs. Prior to last season, Nashville had made the postseason tournament in three straight and six of the previous seven years. cheap nfl jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. cheap jerseys from china .

That obstacle in the divisional round of the postseason was of course, eventual Super Bowl champion Green Bay. The field-stretching Packers had the opposite game plan than Atlanta, which primarily opted to run first before letting quarterback Matt Ryan do his thing in the pocket last season.Each week, we will run down the top waiver wire pickups with a focus on the coming week and rest of the season. QUARTERBACKS Nick Foles (vs. Dallas)Last week: 22/31, 296 yards, 3 TDs; 1 rushing TDFoles is owned by less than 20% of teams heading into Week 7 meaning a lot of fantasy teams – and surely some in need of QB help – missed out on a Top 3 performance at the position last week. If Mike Vicks hamstring isnt ready to go come Sunday Foles is a must-own. Even if Vick is ready to go Foles performance may have been enough to spark a QB controversy in Philadelphia and owning the sophomore third-rounder could pay off before the season is out. Josh Freeman (at New York Giants)Last week: -If you saw the Vikings last week, you know they need a new QB. Freeman may not be the answer, and its likely hell struggle for a bit as he continues to learn Minnesotas playbook, but hes the teams best option and gives fantasy teams a working bye week replacement as soon as he starts, which could be as early as this week. Brandon Weeden (at Green Bay)Last week: 26/43, 292 yards, 2 TDs, 2 INTsThe Browns QB play regressed last week with Weeden taking over for an injured Brian Hoyer, but it was felt more in real football than in fantasy football. Weeden was a Top 10 QB last week, throwing for 292 yards and two touchdowns. Dont expect that to continue into next week, especially with the Browns traveling to Lambeau Field taking on the Packers, but the now 30-year-old could put up QB2 numbers. Thad Lewis (at Miami)Last week: 19/32, 216 yards, 2 TDsLewis performance was a very pleasant surprise for the Bills in Week 6, throwing for more than 200 yards and scoring three combined TDs in almost leading the team to an OT win over the Bengals. There are reasons for pessimism with Lewis moving forward – hes questionable for Week 7 with a foot sprain; hes still Thad Lewis – but if he gets another start for Buffalo he could be worth a flyer. Others: Chad Henne (vs. San Diego), Mike Glennon (at Atlanta) RUNNING BACKS Joseph Randle (at Philadelphia) Last week: 11 carries, 17 yards, 1 TDRandle is nothing more than an injury fill-in for DeMarco Murray but what makes him enticing is he joins a strong offence in Dallas and has five straight games against defences that struggle some against the run. If Murray is out for a while, this could be a really good pickup. Brandon Jacobs (vs. Minnesota)Last week: 22 carries, 106 yards, 2 TDsJacobs turned back the clock for at least one week last Thursday in rushing for 106 yards and two TDs against the Bears. David Wilson could need season-ending back surgery so the Giants backfield should be Jacobs, at least until DaRel Scott returns from injury in a few weeks. Jacobs is a shell of his former self and last weeks performance is unlikely to be repeated. But he is still a big body capable of plunging into the end zone should the Giants get him close enough.dddddddddddd Chris Ogbonnaya (at Green Bay)Last week: 5 carries, 24 yards; 7 catches, 61 yards, 1 TDOgbonnaya wont receive more carries than Willis McGahee in Cleveland but his worth comes in the passing game, especially for teams in PPR leagues. The 27-year-old rushed for just 24 yards last week, and hasnt yet rushed for more than 30 yards in a game this season, but he added seven catches for 61 yards and a touchdown, making for a decent performance last Sunday. Moving forward Ogbonnaya should expect five or more targets to supplement his weak ground totals. Others: Mike Tolbert (vs. St. Louis), Brandon Bolden (at New York Jets) WIDE RECEIVERS Emmanuel Sanders (vs. Baltimore)Last week: 3 catches, 70 yards, 1 TDThere are a number of serviceable receivers that can be found on the waiver wire each week; after Pittsburgh finally got into the win column last weekend against the Jets, Sanders could be one worth a look. Hes not receiving the targets he did prior to Heath Millers return to the lineup (averaging 11 the first two weeks, seven the past three) but is still putting up more than 60 yards receiving per week on average. If he can find the end zone like he did last week, teams are looking at a double-digit scorer in Sanders. Terrance Williams (at Philadelphia)Last week: 2 catches, 27 yards, 1 TDWilliams saw a drastic reduction in targets last week coinciding with the return of a healthy Miles Austin, but still managed a decent fantasy line by scoring a touchdown on one of his just two catches. The rookie has looked good early in the season and while there are a number of options Tony Romo will look to first in Dallas, the Cowboys offence is explosive and should provide opportunity for Williams. Others: Rueben Randle (vs. Minnesota), Keenan Allen (at Jacksonville), Stephen Hill (vs. New England) TIGHT ENDS Kyle Rudolph (at New York Giants)Last week: 9 catches, 97 yards, 1 TDThanks in large part to garbage yards, Rudolph had his best game of the year, racking up nine catches for 97 yards and a touchdown. There is reason to believe last week was Rudolphs coming out party and not just a one week aberration. The Vikings should continue to be terrible, having to lean more heavily on the pass in attempts to cut opposing leads, lending to more opportunities for Rudolph. Dont expect the TD every week, but the TE should keep his receiving yards totals fairly high. Jordan Reed (vs. Chicago) Last week: 4 catches, 58 yardsReed is the less-owned Redskins TE with Fred Davis, he shouldnt be. The rookie third-rounder is clearly the top passing game option at TE for Washington, averaging six targets his past two games while Davis wasnt targeted once last week. Reed is taking advantage of his opportunities too, recording 58 receiving yards against Dallas on Sunday. Others: Tyler Eifert (at Detroit), Delanie Walker (vs. San Francisco) ' ' '
