The Senators have suffered a power outage.

If the Senators are going to win this first-round series against the Montreal Canadiens, they must find a way to get their power play on track. Through two games and six opportunities, they have zero goals.

While they were able to get away with it by scoring a 4-2 victory over the Habs in Game 1 Thursday, if they'd been able to cash in on one of their four chances Friday in Game 2 -- including three in the first -- it could have made a difference.

"There's no secrets: We're going to try to get shots and bodies in front," said captain Daniel Alfredsson Saturday. "We've had a couple of good looks on and off, but it hasn't been consistent enough for us. I believe, especially on the road, it's even more important to have the power play give you spark.

"(Friday) we had our chances in the second, right before they score, and if we score there it could have been the difference in the game."
