The Senators put up a good fight this afternoon in Philadelphia in what seemed to have the atmosphere and intensity of a playoff game, but ultimately lost 3-2 in OT, thanks to Gatineau native Danny Briere, which completed his hat trick. At least the Sens were able to pick up the point for getting to overtime..
Other thoughts from the game:
- Karlsson picked up another 2 points today
- Speaking of EK, loved seeing him yell at the ref at the end of the game about the non call icing, even though he was wrong, I loved seeing the passion.
- What was Phillips doing on that giveaway for the OT winner? His brainfart moments seem to be increasing.
- There were A LOT of sketchy penalty calls today. Refs seem to be getting worse and worse.
- JMR dove so much I thought he was a soccer player this afternoon.
- I absolutely love Zack Smith's game. Always brings it.
- Foligno has been playing chippy as hell the past 2 months. Love it.
- Good to see Michalek back in the scoring column again.
- Man it was an ugly fight, but cool to see Turris willing to drop em too. Starting to really like him.
With 2 assists, Erik Karlsson wins the afternoon.
