Senators Win 4-3 Over Panthers

Check out the highlights

A back and forth at Scotiabank Place this evening.  Two teams very similarly matched were up against one another, and it showed.  The Panthers held a 1-0 lead after one period on a Jason Garrison blast that eluded Craig Anderson.  In the second, Daniel Alfredsson tied the game when he roofed the puck during a delayed penalty only to have the Panthers quickly take the lead again on a gorgeous passing play, finished by Tomas Fleischmann.  At 14:14, Stephane Da Costa made up for an earlier penalty by joining the rush and snapped in a pass from Erik Condra, tying the game going into the third.

Cue the dramatics.  With under 3 minutes to go, Colin Greening put on a show, keeping the puck in the offensive zone with his body, eventually getting it to his stick and shooting one by Markstrom.  Sens up by 1 with little time left.  The Panthers would press hard and a cross ice pass by Stephen Weiss to Kris Versteeg was put into the net to tie the game once again.  We’re going to overtime, right?  WRONG.  With about 4 seconds left in the game, David Rundblad stops the puck from leaving the offensive zone and sends it over to the captain.  Daniel Alfredsson picks it up and fires a shot on Markstrom that creates a big enough rebound for Nick Foligno to grab and tuck the puck under the sprawling Panther goaltender to give the Sens yet another last second win and their 4th straight overall. 

One thing is for sure, after a couple of embarrassing losses, this team has changed things around and you can no longer count this team out.  The Senators have now hit the .500 mark and hope to climb above for the first time on Saturday when they face the New York Rangers at MSG.  Should be a good one.
