Senators Win 2-0 Over Sabres

Everytime the 2013 Ottawa Senators have put a stroke in the win column, its either been on the shoulders of Craig Anderson or Erik Karlsson.  Tonight it was both.

Craig Anderson made 42 saves on this evening, setting a team record for most saves in a home shutout by a Senators goaltender.  His number of stops surpassed the previous record of 35, held by Martin Gerber, Dominik Hasek & Ron Tugnutt.

Meanwhile, No. 65 did everything he could to turn the Senators’ fortune around.  After scoring 7 goals in the past 5 games, Karlsson took the team on his back once again, creating multiple scoring opportunities – whether for himself or a teammate. At 15:20 of the second period, the young Swede scored the all important opening goal; registering his first ever shorthanded marker in the NHL on a sweet cross ice pass from Milan Michalek.  It was Karlsson’s team-leading 6th goal of the season.

Erik Condra also got off the schneid, scoring his 2nd goal of the season during a scramble in front of Sabres’ netminder Ryan Miller.

The Senators next game is tomorrow night against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
