Sens Recap: Good Greif

Last night the Leafs shutout our Senators 3-0 in a foreshadowing of the rest of the season. No Spezza, no goals. No Karlsson, no goals. No Michalek, no goals. Anderson can play amazing hockey all season, like he did last night and still the senators arent going to win many games if they can't put the puck in the net.

The senators had 3 players make their NHL debuts last night and it showed in the on ice product. Just so you can truly grasp the how inexperienced this team is take a look back at this stat from Silver Seven:
"Of the 18 skaters Ottawa has playing (last night), seven of them are eligible for the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year. They are Silfverberg, Zibanejad, Da Costa, Dzirzinsky, Grant, Wiercoch and Gryba. Jim O'Brien misses the cut off by 3 due to playing 28 games last year." Also remember that Borowiecki who did not play is also eligible and that Benoit is not eligible because he's 29 years old despite the fact he had zero games experience prior to this season. Yikes.
