Senators 5 - 1 Leafs
This game had everything the sens needed to get back on track, and they ended their losing streak in convincing fashion. The sens got another great game from Daniel Alfredsson - 3 assists, and he did alot of forechecking, which helped the sens keep the lead late in the game... which the Senators recently discovered is one of the keys to winning the game.
A great game from Dean McAmmond, often playing on the top line with Dany Heatley and Jason Spezza. The sens need a few more players to put in the same type of effort. One player who does put in that effort is Mike Fisher, who I believe made a conscious effort to hit some Leafs tonight.
Jason Spezza did provide the spark that we expected of him, and picked up 2 assists in the process. He did, however, miss one glorious opportunity to score where he had the net totally open, staring Andrew Raycroft right in the eye, and he passed to Heatley rather than take a shot on net. *sigh*
Ray Emery played a solid game which should restore the sens fans' confidence him, but perhaps more importantly, should restore Emery's confidence in himself.
That's all for tonight. Rematch on Saturday night - NOT ON PAY-PER-VIEW... greedy jerks.
