Ottawa On a Roll

The Ottawa Senators beat the New Jersey Devils 4-1 at the Devil’s brand new Prudential Center. The very first goal scored at the new Devils arena was by the Sens’ Andrej Meszaros in the second period. Brian Gionta replied for New Jersey later in the same period. But in the 3rd, Mike Fisher (shown scoring the goal in the pic above), Shean Donavan & Daniel Alfredsson scored a goal each to gain victory for the Senators. Goalie Martin Gerber made 31 saves for Ottawa. The week layoff for the Sens have not diminished their appetite for goals. The next face Atlanta on Thursday.

Last Saturday, the Sens had faced the Florida Panthers at home and beat them by the same scoreline of 4-1. Ray Emery made 31 saves in his first regular-season start of the season to help the Ottawa Senators beat the Florida Panthers 4-1 on Saturday night.  Emery, who underwent off-season wrist surgery, did play two games last weekend for the Senators’ AHL affiliate in Binghamton, stopping 80 of 86 shots. Fisher and Donovan scored second-period goals for the Senators; Christoph Schubert and Alfredsson added goals in the third.

  1. The Sens have the great advantage of having two hot goalies. It’ll be interesting to see how they go about resolving the fact that both will want to be the starter. Gerber’s win over New Jersey proved that Emery’s return won’t cause him to falter, while Emery’s not only playing well but is the real character guy.

    I think that they’ll play around with it for a while, but ship one off if any team shows interest. They don’t need two starters, and they could potentially get some scoring depth by moving Gerber.

  2. I agree. But I’d wait till March and the trade deadline. Just in case Emery needs time to get to his best form. We should have kept Mike Comrie or got someone who can score a few more goals. I was hoping for Daniel Briere as he is from the area.
