How Heatley got his groove back

Sens win! Take that doubters.

Senators fans got what they asked for this game, with a struggling Ottawa team digging in their heels and pulling off a 4-3 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins. It looks like Dany Heatley has found his scoring touch (at least for one game), and Daniel Alfredsson, after a game to forget, scored a triumphant goal to win the game.

The Pens were taking the game to Ottawa through much of the first and second periods. Only after fighting through these periods and barely holding onto the game did the Ottawa Senators find their groove.

Ray Emery had a hot and cold game, occasionally making big saves, but then following those up with awkward laying-on-the-ice-and-struggling-to-get-up tactics. But all that matters, I think, is that the Sens have stuck with a goalie.

Strange coincidence this game: Nothing bad to say about Wade Redden, and Chris Kelly looked like... well... Redden on the ice today. Also, Mike Commodore had a great game from what I saw... I just think we could have used Joe Corvo in that overtime.
