The game started well enough, when the Sens had really nice powerplay movement, that ultimately ended up with an Alfie goal off the one timer. It was the type of play I had envisioned when we signed Gonchar in the offseason, but those plays have been few and far between.
The turning point was Erik Karlsson's horrendous 3rd period giveaway to Kane of all people, who proceeded to skate in and score on Elliott, who had a pretty solid game, but I felt the Kane goal was stoppable.
Either way, it was point earned that I had not anticipated us getting, which is good and bad, depending how you look at it. It was good in the sense that we got an extra point to help out slim playoff hopes, but I know many of you were hoping for a horrible loss, so the process of the Clouston/Murray firing would be sped up. Don't worry, with Tampa and Boston upcoming, I doubt you'll have to wait long.
All in all the Sens surprised me with a decent effort, which goes to show you how far we've fallen. We used to measure success with a Stanley Cup championship, now we're happy with our millionaire team actually trying.
With one goal and one assist, Daniel Alfredsson wins the night.
