One year ago on Jan 5th, I had given my resignation letter for quitting my previous job as I got it confirmed that I was getting my current job. I stayed back at the old job until the 11th of January, unable to complete a 15 day notice period but more just to spend some time with my friends at the office. I left on good terms with most of them and that was very important for me.
I can remember my elation as I got the offer letter for my current job (it would change a bit in a few days, the offer I mean) and the fact that I would finally be getting a little more decent pay that the peanuts that I was stuck with for 3 years. I was feeling a bit more free and felt that I could hold my head high now. But I was also sad and scared – sad that the amount of time & energy that I put in my previous company was not bearing me any fruit, although they got a lot from me & scared because of the uncertainty that stood in front of me in the form of a new company where I knew almost no one. That would come to haunt me for a few days but would get fixed soon.
Anyway, I do miss the people at my previous firm.
Despite blowing a 3 goal lead, the Ottawa Senators stayed firm to collect the win over the Buffalo Sabres. Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson scored late in the third period and Ottawa beat Buffalo 5-3 on Friday night to hand the Sabres their season-worst fifth straight loss. Jason Spezza and Andrej Meszaros each added a goal and an assist for the Senators, who snapped a two-game skid and won for the fourth time in six games. Ray Emery made 36 saves and Cody Bass scored his first NHL goal. Ottawa owns the best road record in the Eastern Conference (14-4-2), thanks in large part to Heatley and Alfredsson, who have 24 & 25 goals respectively.
The new year did not start appropriately for the Sens as they lost away to Washington 3-6. Chris Neil, Dean McAmmond & Meszaros had the goals in that one, as the Capitals continue to dominate us. Three days before that the Caps beat the Sena 8-6 in Ottawa, in a match which saw Alexander Ovechkin score 4 goals & where Sens players Alfredsson scored 2 goals and Mike Fisher score 3 goals.
A day before that on the 27th of December, Jason Spezza, Alfredsson, Antoine Vermette, Nick Foligno & Fisher scored a goal each to enable Ottawa to beat the New York Islander 5-2.
