Two in a row: Sens 3, Thrashers 2

Here is a bullet listing of positive signs from tonight's game:
  • Ottawa gave up the first goal, but still won in regulation (second time of the year).
  • Ottawa came back from 1-0 and 2-1 deficits and won in regulation.
  • Christoph Schubert hit the net three times, including some solid shots, and (according to the score sheet) had no shots blocked.
  • Daniel Alfredsson massacred a net with his sickening shot, after a terrific pass from checker-cum-playmaker Mike Fisher (who got the puck from playmaker-cum-checker Jason Spezza).
  • The Senators were outshot 32-31, but still won the game.
  • Spezza also scored a goal (two-point night) and is now 23rd in the league in goals with 18.
  • Ottawa was 2-for-5 on the powerplay.
  • Filip Kuba got his second assist in as many games since returning from injury, and looked darn good.
  • Dean McAmmond scored his second goal in as many games, and led the team (tied with Fisher) with four shots in just 10:53 of ice time.
  • Jarkko Ruutu had his first point (an assist) in 8 games, and first since returning from serving his suspension for biting someone.
  • No Senator had less than 10:08 in ice time (Ruutu).
  • A goaltender, Brian Elliott, actually made some big saves, including game-savers late in the game (although he was shaky at times, including Atlanta's second goal).
That is all. Lazy, I know.
