Sens Win Fifth In A Row
In seemed almost impossible that we could compete when Karlsson and Michalek went down 6 games ago now, and it seemed even more unlikely when league leading MVP candidate Craig Anderson went down a few games ago, but here we are, a team full of old vets and AHL rookies, tearing up the league for our fifth win in a row.
We certainly didn't play the best, in fact we were severely out played most of the game, which was reflected in Montreal's 45-24 shot advantage, but we came up big in the effort department and that's what counts in the end, eventually out lasting the Habs in the shootout for the 2-1 win, with Peter Regin fittingly scoring the shootout winner in his return to action.
The star of the game was easily Ben Bishop, who single handedly kept us in the game, making many spectacular saves throughout the night. It's safe to say without him it could have gotten ugly pretty fast. It wasn't a pretty game by any means but who cares at this point. We just keep chugging along and collecting points. The Sens win all 4 games on their homestand for the first time since 1998 too. What a night.
With 44 saves, that ties a record for most saves by a Senator in a home win by the way, Ben Bishop wins the night.
