Ottawa 6, Winnipeg 4

Despite being out played most of the game (giving up 43 shots) the Senators were able to win their second game in a row to close out their November schedule.  The team lost both Nikita Filatov (broken nose) and Filip Kuba (upper-body) in the first period, and they were lucky that Colin Greening was not injured on a play in the third.  For the box score go here link.  A look at the goals:
1. Michalek (Alfredsson, Foligno)
Shoots short-side on the odd-man rush
2. WInnipeg, Wheeler
Alfredsson baubles the puck in the slot and Foligno is slow getting to the open man on the back door
3. Winnipeg, Burmistrov
Cowen turns the puck over and Anderson let’s in a bad goal short-side
4. Smith (Condra)
Pavelec can’t seal the puck and Smith whacks it in
5. Michalek (Phillips, Condra)
Deflects in the point shot
6. Winnipeg, Kane
Point shot deflects off the back boards and Kane scores on an open net back door
7. Winnipeg, Kane (pp)
Karlsson can’t prevent Kane from cashing in a rebound
8. Spezza (Karlsson, Phillips)
Great cross-ice pass gives Spezza the yawning cage
9. Smith (Gonchar, Daugavins) (pp)
Gets the pass in the slot and fires it home
10. Foligno (Winchester, Greening) (en)
Great board work from his linemates gets Foligno the empty-netter

Top-performers:
Milan Michalek – scored a couple of goals and played a strong game
Zack Smith – also with a pair of goals and strong defensive play
Chris Phillips – two assists and a team-leading +4

Players who struggled:
Jared Cowen – wasn’t terrible, but a team-worst -3 and had a giveaway that lead directly to a goal
