OTTAWA - The only consistent for the Senators this season is their inconsistency.

After back-to-back visits to Detroit (4-2 win) Friday and Carolina (4-1 loss) Sunday, the Senators had Monday off to lick their wounds and get ready to face Washington Wednesday night.

Twenty-four games into the season, the Senators are on the outside looking in at the NHL’s playoff picture and they haven’t been able to find the right solution to winning regularly.

The Senators begin a tough stretch here with the Capitals Wednesday, the Canucks at home Thursday and the emotional return of captain Daniel Alfredsson to the Canadian Tire Centre Sunday night.
