OTTAWA (AP) - The Senators have been one of the best kept secrets in the NHL the last two seasons. They qualified for the postseason both times, they advanced to the second round last season, and they won 65 regular-season games over that span.
But the word's out on this team now. And in a tough division - the newly redefined Atlantic - equaling that success is going to be a chore.
Indeed, among others, Toronto, Boston, Montreal and Detroit are division mates with the Senators this season. All of those clubs made the postseason, and the Bruins even advanced to the Stanley Cup finals.
|LOS ANGELES: |
LOS ANGELES (AP) - After the most successful two-year stretch in franchise history, the Los Angeles Kings just want to keep it going.
That's because the Kings historically aren't used to good times. The 2012 Stanley Cup champions returned to the Western Conference finals last summer, winning six total playoff rounds - twice as many as this long-struggling team had ever managed in any two-year stretch.
To stay on top, Los Angeles plans to rely on the same unflashy, workmanlike style that allowed coach Darryl Sutter's club to raise the Cup for the first time.

(EDITS fourth graf)
*Senators-Kings Preview* ========================
By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer
Ottawa (1-0-1) at Los Angeles (1-2-0), 10:30 p.m. EDT
Jonathan Quick should get a chance to redeem himself.
The Los Angeles Kings would just like to avoid a three-game slide.
Quick will try to bounce back from an embarrassing gaffe and help the Kings continue their home dominance of the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night.
Quick started this season in strong fashion, stopping 27 of 29 shots before turning aside both shootout attempts in Thursday's 3-2 win over Minnesota. He hasn't been nearly that effective over the last two games, giving up seven goals on 55 shots.
His latest performance, however, included his worst moment of the young season. The All-Star goaltender left the net to play a dump-in off the boards early in the third period, but lost his stick before the puck deflected off his blocker and trickled in for a short-handed goal - and the final tally - in a 3-1 defeat to the New York Rangers on Monday.
"You play 60 minutes and you try to stop the puck for your teammates, that's the thought process," said Quick, the 2012 Conn Smythe Award winner during the Kings' run to their first Stanley Cup. "Everyone gives up that goal, and it's part of the game."
Facing Ottawa (1-0-1) - especially at home - could be just what Quick and the Kings need.
Los Angeles has won seven of the last nine meetings with the Senators, and owns an 11-1-0 record with one tie in 13 all-time at home.
Quick is 3-1-0 with a 1.76 GAA and one shutout in four career starts versus Ottawa, winning both at home while making 27 saves in a 4-1 victory in the latest matchup Jan. 23, 2012.
While Quick is looking to continue that success and show some improvement, so are the rest of the Kings. They've scored half of their six goals on the power play, but are looking for more intensity at even strength.
"Our five-on-five play needs to improve," right wing Justin Williams said. "It's non-existent right now. Certainly we need to get dirty. We need to become whole, put our work before skill, and get dirty and greasy, bang some in and rebound."
The Senators are on a season-opening six-game road trip and trying to end a five-game losing streak and six-game winless skid in Los Angeles since their lone victory there on Jan. 11, 2000.
So far, coach Paul MacLean is encouraged after opening the season with a 1-0 win at Buffalo on Friday before squandering a two-goal lead to fall 5-4 in a shootout at Toronto the following day.
"We come on the road and get three of a possible four points, had the lead at 4-2 halfway through the game so, yeah, we can take that out of the game," MacLean said. "The way we played over the course of the 60 minutes, much like (Friday), we can take the good, throw out the bad and get on with our season."
Jason Spezza, who missed all but five games last season due to back surgery, got his first goal of 2013-14 on Saturday after coming up empty on seven shots in the opener. The center has no points and is a minus-3 in four games at Los Angeles.
Kyle Turris leads the Senators with four points through two games.
