Senators Win 3-1 Over Islanders

Highlights

After a couple of games where the effort was there, but the result was not – the Ottawa Senators will take Tuesday night’s outcome.  Thoroughly outplayed by a desperate Islander team, the Sens were able to ride NHL firsts by Andre Benoit & David Dziurzynski to a 3-1 victory.

Not to be overshadowed was Colin Greening’s 2nd period PP goal, which broke an 0 for 24 slump during the man advantage and gave the Senators an early lead.  It also rewarded a player that needed to get back into the good books with the head coach after being a healthy scratch 2 games ago.

But overall, this was one of the team’s worst performances of the year.  Never-ending turnovers, missed nets, poor execution and failed clearing attempts were a constant all night long.  If not for Craig Anderson, and his 37 saves, this match would’ve been a blowout for the Islanders; a team looking for redemption after getting their butts kicked by the Philadelphia Flyers.

Lost in the celebration for Dziurzynski & Benoit’s 1st NHL goals was the fact that Eric Gryba registered his first NHL point on Dziurzynski’s goal.

The Senators have the day off tomorrow and welcome the NY Rangers back to town for a playoff rematch on Thursday.
