Bam!!! The Senators made it four in a row tonight, beating the Florida Panthers in the dying seconds to get a 4-3 win in which was a very exciting third period. This is the 2nd straight game the Sens have won with under 5 seconds to play. pretty compelling stuff at SBP these days. They may not be talented but they sure to play hard and never give up, and you know what, sometimes that's better. One thing I do know is that they are fun to watch and very easy to root for when they put out that kind of effort. We are now .500 on the season.
Other thoughts from the game:
- I thought Spezza was excellent again and he registered another point tonight.
- Rundblad has been quietly improving and a solid 3rd. He also kept the puck in and made a beauty little pass to Alfie on the game winning goal to get us the win.
- Is Colin Greening turning into the power forward we've always desperately needed? Sure looks like it.
- Attendance was 18,867. Pretty solid.
- I found Craig Anderson to be kind of shaky, especially on the first and third goals. He has to have that first one and he was crazy out of position on the third. He was lucky to get the W.
- Jacob Markstrom is gonna be a beast. I can see why he is so highly rated. And crazy that he is 6'6.
With one goal and one assist for the captain, Daniel Alfredsson wins the night.
