The Canadian is just going through his first fall of the season and now he’s found the team that started against the fall.

Hubs will compete against senators from Ottawa in the suburbs of the Canadian capital on Sunday.
The 3-2 defeat at the Bell Center was the beginning of a more difficult series for CH, this time for the team 2: 4-0.
For Brady Takachuk, what he does best is an opportunity that hurts the opponent. In the past we’ve seen him fight Shia Weber. And to show that he wasn’t intimidating his ancestors, he attacked Corey Perry when Senators visited the Bell Center.
“From a young age, I was never intimidated,” Takachuk replied via video conference on Sunday afternoon. I have a lot of respect for these guys, but we’re fighting for success. I play with my vision and my skills. Yes, they are difficult to deal with, but I like to play with passion and emotions and let the example guide me. ”
The 21-year-old Takachuk has pushed the NHL (78) this season. Take that offensive talent and determination, give him some leadership, and lead his head coach to refer to him as the “engine” of his team.
“It leads through emotions. He wants to win every time, explained DJ Smith. He gets better with every game. For a tall man like him, preseason games can help. Nevertheless, he leads our team in points. He is the engine for our team. ”
Tim Statzel, who scored three points in a 3-2 win over the Senators in Montreal on February 4, was another one who got CH in trouble. The 19-year-old German then experienced a goalless series of five games with a rating of -7. However, he regained his offensive traits by collecting three points in his last three games.
“She’s okay. The Senators’ head coach, DJ Smith, said he’d be even more noticeable if he were on our trip against other teams at the same time. But every two games he does a very special job or two.”
Murray Right now, Chabot is unsure
The existence of Thomas Chabot in this double battle against the Canadians is uncertain. Buceron missed his team’s last game due to an assault.
According to media at the Ottawa compound, Chabot attended his family’s morning training session. “I am fine. The decision will likely be made later today. I’m happy to be back on the ice and things are moving in the right direction, ”said the dynamic defender.
Matt Murray will defend the Senatorial Network. Murray got off to a terrible start to the season (2-9-1 record, 3.82 average, 0.878 capacity) but gave two good performances against CH two weeks ago, conceding just 4 goals in 70 shots.
The Canadian took a training leave on Sunday morning for this second game in 24 hours. Claude Julian meets with the media in the late afternoon.
