batman download The Ottawa Senators have finally put their act together a little bit and won two consecutive games. Monday night’s 5-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres would have given them some confidence and instilled the feeling of gelling better with the new players. Jason Spezza had 2 goals on that night; Dany Heatley had a goal and an assist and Christoph Schubert and Shean Donovan also scored for the Senators (3-5-1), while Daniel Alfredsson added two assists.
Last night, once again in an away game, the Sens beat Florida 2-1 with Heatley and Chris Kelly scoring 3rd period goals. The victory was Ottawa’s (4-5-1) second in a row following a four-game losing streak. Florida beat the Senators 3-1 at Scotiabank Place on Oct. 22. Alex Auld, who played for Florida in 2006-07, made 25 saves for Ottawa. He was making his fourth consecutive start in place of the injured Martin Gerber.
With the goalie situation seemingly strong and the new players coming close to adjusting in the system, we might now have a good run. It’s important to get a few more good wins under the belt before the real tests begins over the course of the season. But I can’t help but wonder that we are still 1 or 2 attacking players short and atleast 1 solid defenceman shy of a complete team.
