Struggling Senators continue long road trip at Canucks

Ottawa (12-16-5) at Vancouver (19-14-3), 10:00 pm EST

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Ottawa Senators will

continue their eight-game road swing with another stop in

Western Canada on Sunday, visiting the Vancouver Canucks.

The Senators have not enjoyed their trip, dropping the first two

games - including Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Calgary Flames.

Ottawa will also visit the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.

In the midst of their worst season this decade, the Senators

have lost six of their last eight contests and sit at the bottom

of the Northeast Division standings. Ottawa has an NHL-worst 80

goals.

The Senators look to end their offensive woes against the

Canucks, who are still without superstar goaltender Roberto

Luongo.

Luongo has missed the last 17 games and Vancouver has struggled

over that stretch, posting an 8-8-1 record. The Canucks will

try to avoid their third straight loss in this one.

Mason Raymond and Kyle Wellwood scored Friday, but Vancouver

still suffered its ninth loss in 14 games with a 3-2 setback to

the Oilers.
