The Ottawa Senators are back in action tonight, kicking off a 4 game road trip against the Colorado Avalanche. The team was off the ice all of last week due to a COVID-19 outbreak. Ottawa made it through the week without any positive tests and returned to practice on Saturday. 8 players have been removed from the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol.
