Sens Lose 4-3 (SO) to Islanders

Check out the highlights

It looked like the Sens could actually win this one tonight.  After 2 periods of play, they had survived a controversial goal scored upon them when the Islanders’ Blake Comeau tallied while Chris Neil was writhing in pain at the other end of the ice.  Jason Spezza had recorded his 500th career NHL point and Bobby Butler had a goal and an assist.  The Sens were up 2-1 and were, for the most part, controlling the play.

Little bit of a problem to start the third.  The Sens were down to 4 defencemen.  Both Chris Campoli and Sergei Gonchar left the game with lower body injuries and the 4 remaining defencemen were going to have to play out the third and hopefully, hang on.  They couldn’t.  While on the PP, the Senators allowed Michael Grabner to score in his 4th straight game and then, Josh Bailey wired one over the shoulder of Brian Elliott to give the Islanders the lead.  Usually, that would mean the end for this Senators team. Not this time as with under 5 minutes left, Erik Karlsson would snipe one by Lawson, his first goal in 19 games, and even the score at 3.  Erik Condra recorded his first career NHL assist on the goal.

On to overtime, where the Islanders controlled most of the play, but were unable to sneak one by Brian Elliott.  That meant a shootout, and we all know what that means when it comes to the Ottawa Senators.  After Alex Kovalev had given the Senators an early advantage, Rob Schremp & Frans Nielsen beat Elliott with a deke and through the pads respectively and gave the Islanders their 4th straight win.

Here’s Cory Clouston on the close loss and Jason Spezza on achieving his 500th NHL point.
