Tanking not on Sens' agenda as season winds down

Having traded away their first-round pick in this year's draft in the deal that brought the now-departed Matt Duchene to them early in the 2017-18 campaign, the Ottawa Senators get no benefit from finishing last in the league.

Combine that with the pride factor and the desire to climb out of the NHL's basement is very high these days.

"I look at (the standings) all the time," defenseman Mark Borowiecki recently told Postmedia. "For me, personally, that's my goal, I want to catch L.A. or Detroit (to avoid finishing with the NHL's worst record). One hundred percent you don't want to finish in last place. It sucks. It's even more of a shot to the ego, even though the whole year has been one, but if we sneak out of that last place spot it's small goal to kind of set and strive for."
