The Senators took to the ice for their home opener Monday night in hopes of going 2-0 to start a season for the first time since 2007-08.  After relatively loud cheers for both Erik Karlsson & Jason Spezza, SBP saved their deafening love for captain Daniel Alfredsson, filling the arena with chants of “Alfie, Alfie, Alfie.”

The home team would not disappoint the soldout crowd, jumping on the board 10:42 into the first period.  While on the power-play, Patrick Weircioch found Kyle Turris with a gorgeous cross ice pass, surprising Jose Theodore and making it 1-0.  Ottawa would continue to dominate the remainder of the frame, outshooting Florida 18-4.

The rest of the game followed suit.  Turris finished off another long pass at 12:07 of the 2nd, this time from Guillaume Latendresse, to extend the lead to 2-0.  Jim O’Brien scored unassisted at 17:35 of the third & Jakob Silfverberg scored his first NHL goal with only 1:04 remaining.

4-0 was the final.  Craig Anderson made 31 saves, but none that were overly difficult.  The assist on Turris’ 2nd goal was Latendresse’s first point as a Senator. But all the talk was about the man sitting directly behind the Senators bench that looked exactly like Coach MacLean.

Here is what Coach said when asked about it.
