Sens Choke Away 2 Goal Lead With Another Poor Effort
The Senators got off to a flying start, racking up a 2 goal lead after 1 period before letting Florida score 4 unanswered goals to take it 4-2 in a game the Senators needed to win. It wasn't so much that they lost, as much as it was how they lost. For the 2nd straight game they had a bad compete level and were beaten to the puck almost the whole night. Erik Karlsson had his worst game of the year and looked frustrated most of the evening. The Panthers didn't play particularly well, but the Sens handed them the game and didn't deserve to win. It was the Panthers first win in 4 attempts against the Sens this year. On to Tampa for a big game on Tuesday.
