Sens Win 3-1 Over Devils

Check out the highlights

Some teams just have other teams’ numbers. 

The Ottawa Senators took it to one of the hottest teams in the league….for the second time in the past 2 weeks.   Of course, it helped that goaltender Curtis McElhinney decided that his first home start for the Senators would mirror his first road one.  McElhinney made 33 saves, including an amazing diving glove save on Patrik Elias and a breakaway on Ilya Kovalchuk.  McElhinney was in a zone and only allowed a Brian Rolston slapshot past him throughout the entire game.

Chris Neil scored twice, once into an empty net, while Ryan Shannon added the other.  Jason Spezza tallied 2 assists and now has 15 points in his last 12 games.

While some Senator fans are worried that these latest victories will ruin the team’s draft position, there is a positive.  These young players are showing that they can compete with the elite of this league and if these late season victories mean anything, its that there is a solid base to build from with the likes of Condra, Greening & Butler.

Meanwhile, the loss to the Senators is a huge one for the Devils.  Every point counts and to miss out on 4 over the course of 2 weeks against a supposed “bottom of the league” team will comeback to haunt them in their chase for the final playoff spot in the east.
