Intensity has been a problem for the team that many predict will be playing for the Stanley Cup in June.
A 5-3 victory at Atlanta on Tuesday night that ended a five-game winless streak was a good start for Ottawa's attempt to climb out of the Northeast Division cellar. At 6-4-2-1, the Senators are tied with Montreal for 10th in the Eastern Conference and hardly have looked like the team that dominated the 2002-03 regular season.
