Sens Recap: Sens 3 Caps 2
I honestly did not think the team would be this awful without Jason Spezza in the lineup. But for Paul Maclean's possession game it helps to win faceoffs so that you can start the play with the puck rather than playing catch up
An a positive note Zibanejad was FLYING. easily the quickest player on the ice and the most notable Senator, much to the chagrin (always wanted to use that word in a sentence) of the Binghamton Senators it looks like Z-bad will get a longer look in Ottawa. I think he took way too many shots from the perimeter although I did like the strength of his shot, his accuracy is god awful (would explain his 4% shooting %age in the AHL). Ide like to see him playing with some more offensive linemates but his line played so well I doubt that will happen.
If any NHL coaches watch the game tape for this game and realize the Sens can be completely undone by an aggressive forecheck I dont like our chances at a playoff spot. Paging Bryan Murray to add a solid defenseman!
Finally, how great are those Heritage Jerseys? heres hoping they become the perma-home jersey next season. If not lets bring back the 2D Senator head and ditch the constipated 3D version.
BTW remember how I said Ovechkin would only take perimeter shots? I was wrong it was the Senators taking the perimeter shots. How we scored 3 goals Ill never know. Eek check it out...
