Four out of the seven players that were involved in the Uber video, combined to score ten points in their first game since the video was leaked.
In Tuesday night's game against the New Jersey Devils, the Ottawa Senators played their first game since the video featuring seven of their players were seen bashing assistant coach, Martin Raymond.
Matt Duchene, Thomas Chabot, Colin White, and Chris Tierney all combined to score ten points in their first game since the video featuring them and three other teammates was leaked.
Chabot scored one goal and had two assists to go along with that on the night. White produced two goals while Duchene had three assists, and Tierney assisted with two goals as well.
After the game, Duchene and White apologized to the media about the remarks they made about Raymond.
“He’s a heck of a person and a coach and he did not deserve what we said...I sincerely mean that on behalf of myself and my teammates.”#Senators Matt Duchene and Colin White apologize for video comments directed at assistant coach Martin Raymond.— TSN Hockey (@TSNHockey) November 7, 2018

While White expressed that he couldn't and didn't want to talk about the situation any further other than expressing his apologies to coach Raymond. Duchene on the other hand, went into greater detail than White did about the situation.
Duchene spoke about how things in the dressing room were now squashed between Raymond and the individuals on the video. He also spoke about how important it was for the team to play very well in their first game since the video was dropped.
Duchene also said he didn't want to go into complete details about the video because it's a very emotional situation to him. He lastly spoke about how all the players involved are better than this and that's not how they fully feel about Raymond.
This latest scandal in the Senators organization is just another example of how shattered this franchise is. The Senators dressing room was already shaken up before this season began when they traded away former captain, Erik Karlsson.
Or you can go back before even the Karlsson trade to see how dysfunctional this organization is. The team was forced to trade Mike Hoffman after his fiancee was accused of cyber-bullying against Karlsson's wife.
Yet another example is this past summer, when former assistant general manager, Randy Lee, was forced to step down amid harassment charges were filed against him.
If the Senators can be successful in the remainder of their season, then hopefully the entire organization will be able to move past yet another organizational mishap.
