Coach Clouston has made it clear that a change in attitude is necessary in Ottawa, which has won only 17 of its 49 games this season:
"Everyone hates losing, but it's, 'What are you willing to do to make sure you don't lose?' I don't think they've become accustomed to (losing). I just think sometimes they're expecting the worst. Sometimes when something doesn't go right for them, they're looking around the corner for what's next, the 'poor me' syndrome, and that's one of the things that has to change. Nobody is going to do it but themselves.''
