Ottawa 5, Edmonton 2

Ottawa played a strong game tonight in defeating the Oilers.  Other than the first five minutes of the game, Edmonton was unable to generate much pressure and the Senators dominated.  There were far fewer turnovers for the Sens.  For the box score go here link.  Here’s a look at the goals:
1. Greening (Michalek, Spezza)
Cashes in on a 2-on-1
2. Daugavins (Smith, Karlsson)
Scores top shelf, far side from the faceoff dot
3. Michalek (Spezza)
Scores off a win faceoff, using Peckham as a screen
4. Edmonton, Lander (sh)
Goes upstairs shortside on a shot Anderson would like to have back
5. Winchester (Butler)
Nice goal on a breakaway from the blueline in
6. Konopka (Gonchar)

7. Edmonton, Jones (pp)

Top-performers:
Zack Smith – picked up an assist, was strong at both ends of the rink and didn’t turn the puck over
Colin Greening – lead the team in scoring chances, scored a goal, and was good defensively

No one on the team struggled; every player had at least eleven minutes of ice time.
