Senators’ Rookies defeat Penguins’ Rookies 4-0

The Ottawa Senators’ rookies defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins’ rookies in Game 1 of the rookie tournament Saturday afternoon. The tandem of Corey Cowick (2 goals, 1 assist) and Derek Grant provided all the offence the Senators would need, supplying 3 goals between the 2 of them (Andre Petersson would add the other).  Robin Lehner was spectacular in recording the shutout, making a ton of third period saves.  The Senators’ defence was effective, in particular Mark Borowiecki, who contributed one assist, a 2nd period fight & a couple of clean open-ice hits. 

Corey Cowick, Eric Gryba & Patrick Weircioch all wore A’s for the Senators.  Jean-Gabriel Pageau had lower body soreness and did not play.
