Well I missed the 5 match update which closed out October but I’ll go with the update of the 3 games played in November so far. On the 5th of November Jason Spezza scored a power-play goal 4:17 into overtime to give the Ottawa Senators a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Spezza also assisted on Daniel Alfredsson’s first-period goal, but his first tally of the season couldn’t have been more timely. Mike Fisher also scored for Ottawa and Pascal Leclaire made 18 saves in the third meeting between the two teams this season, the second in seven days.
Two days on Saturday, at home the Sens lost 2-3 to the New Jersey Devils. Milan Michalek and Brian Lee scored for the Senators. Pascal Leclaire, celebrating his 27th birthday, stopped 22 shots.
And last night Spezza scored the winning goal in the shootout for the Ottawa Senators, who came from behind twice to beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-3 on Tuesday night. Chris Neil scored his third goal of the season with just under seven minutes left in regulation to give the Senators a 3-2 lead. Jonathan Cheechoo and Nick Foligno also scored for the Senators. Leclaire made 31 saves.
