Mike Fisher scored two power play goals on Saturday night to help lead the Ottawa Senators to a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins and continue their impressive run in the current season. Dany Heatley had the other goal, his 8th of the season, while goalie Martin Gerber had 17 saves for his NHL leading 8th win of the season. Ottawa defenceman Joe Corvo had three assists, involving himself in each goal. Bostons 2 goals were scored by former Calgary Flames player Chuck Kobesaw. Fisher’s first-period goal was the 200th point of his career. The Senators are a perfect 11-0-0-0 on the season when they score first, and 0-1-0-0 when they don’t.
Two days ago at the Scotiabank Place, new recruit Randy Robitaille endeared himself to the Ottawa crowds by scoring two goals in a 6-4 win over the Atlanta Thrashers. However the Senators came close to blowing a five-goal lead before hanging on for a 6-4 win. With the Thrashers trailing 5-0 in the third, Atlanta’s Ilya Kovalchuk scored three times and the Thrashers fought back to within a goal before Daniel Alfredsson sealed the win with his second goal of the night, a short-handed effort into an empty net. Randy had to leave the game before it ended due to an injury. Patrick Eaves & Nick Foligno had the other goals for the Sens.
