Senators look to cure road woes against Oilers

Ottawa (12-17-5) at Edmonton (17-14-3), 10:00 p.m. EST

EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The ongoing struggles of the

Ottawa Senators can be traced to their ineffectiveness on the

road.

Looking for their first victory away from home in two months,

the Senators visit the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.

The Senators, who will be on the road until mid-January while

the World Junior Championship is played in Ottawa, are coming

off a 3-0 setback against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday, the

third contest in their current eight-game road trip.

They have gone 0-10-2 on the road since a 2-1 victory at Florida

on October 30. Their three victories and eight points away from

the ScotiaBank Place are the fewest in the NHL.

Ottawa is currently trudging through its worst road losing

streak since dropping an league-record 38 straight in its

inaugural 1992-93 campaign, when the team went 10-70-4.

The club also ranks last in the NHL in total goals scored with

80.

Edmonton seeks its fourth straight triumph after toppling the

Nashville Predators, 5-2, on Saturday. The Oilers have seven

wins in December, their best month this season.
