After the last update, goalie Brian Elliot came back but could not do much to save a loss against the Boston Bruins, 0-2 on the 21st of December. This was the same day that Senators C Mike Fisher confirmed his engagement to singer Carrie Underwood. Two days later it got even more worse – infact the lowest point of the season so far. We lost away to the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-8 in a thrashing like we have never seen before. Anton Volchenkov & Chris Kelly scored the goals for us.
The Senators had to wait till Boxing day to get their act back together – a 3-2 shootout victory over the Buffalo Sabres. Ryan Shannon & Chris Neil scored the regulation time goals for the Senators. And then on the 28th we had a nice home victory over the Montreal Canadiens, 4-2. Shannon, Neil, Peter Regin & Chris Campoli had the goals for the capitcal city.
Ottawa played the last two days of the year, a 3-4 loss to the Colorado Avalanche in which Shannon had a brace and Nick Foligno had the 3rd goal. But New Year’s eve was much more happier for the Sens. It was a shootout victory over the New York Islander – regulation time goals scored by Kelly & Regin.
