The 1994–95 Ottawa Senators season, the third season of the National Hockey League (NHL) club, was cut short due to the NHL lockout, which postponed the start of the season until late January, and teams only played 48 games that season.

Regular season[edit]

Alexei Yashin would once again prove to be the Senators leader on the ice, scoring 21 goals, along with 23 assists for a team leading 44 points. Alexandre Daigle would have another strong season also, putting up 37 points (16 goals, 21 assists) to finish second to Yashin in team scoring.

Don Beaupre would lead the team in net, setting the team record for best GAA average in a season (3.36), best save percentage (.896), won 8 of the 9 games the Senators won during the season, and would get the first shutout in team history on February 6, when the Senators shutout the Philadelphia Flyers 3–0 at the Civic Centre.

The Sens would start slow, going 0–6–2 in their first eight games before their shutout win over Philadelphia. They would continue to slump throughout the first 41 games of the season, as they had a 4–32–5 record, but the team would finish the year by going 5–2–0 in their last seven games, outscoring their opponents 27-21, to finish the season with a 9–34–5 record, but failed to avoid finishing in last place in the NHL for the third straight season.

The Senators finished last in wins (9), losses (34), points (23), even-strength goals against (129) and tied the Florida Panthers and Montreal Canadiens for fewest short-handed goals scored (1).[1]
