Preview: Lightning at Senators

?We definitely needed that,? Ottawa captain Erik Karlsson, who notched four assists, told reporters. ?For us, it was about trying to hit that reset button a little bit and step out of our shell a bit and just not think too much.? The Senators will have to be better against the Lightning, who have beaten them twice this season and own an 11-2-0 record since the start of the calendar year. Nikita Kucherov leads the way with 45 points, registering at least one in 18 of his last 20 contests. Tampa Bay has recorded 41 goals during their strong 13-game run, prompting center Tyler Johnson to tell reporters, ?I think our offense has arrived.?<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 7:30 p.m. ET, Sun Sports (Tampa Bay), TSN5, RDS (Ottawa)
