Senators Call Up Filatov; Send Down Da Costa Nov 27

The day began with the Senators making a roster move that shouldn’t have surprised anybody.  Ottawa recalled forward Nikita Filatov from Binghamton of the AHL, while reassigning the struggling Stephane Da Costa.  Da Costa certainly didn’t have an easy task over the past couple of games, being matched up against some of the game’s elite.  However, his deficiencies in the faceoff circle, as well as the defensive zone, certainly were exposed and will be worked on down in the minors.  Filatov, on the other hand, has been red hot ever since the rumours of his unhappiness surfaced.  He now gets another chance to show Senators management that he belongs at the NHL level.
