Ottawa 2, Boston 5

Tonight was an ugly loss for the Senators and Craig Anderson wears the goat horns.  The game itself had some flow until the Bruins took the lead.  The Sens were fortunate not to lose Nick Foligno to injury (he was kneed by Adam McQuaid).  For the box score go here link.  Here’s a look at the goals:
1. Boston, Peverley
Simply beats Anderson on a routine shoot
2. Alfredsson (Spezza)
Alfredsson gets lost in coverage and Spezza feeds him a great pass
3. Boston, Kelly
Carkner redirects a shot right in front of his net where it gets banged in; Rundblad looks bad on this play until you realise he was moving away from the net to go after the puck on its original trajectory
4. Boston, Bergeron
Alfredsson sends a hard pass to the last man back (Karlsson) and it bounces off his skate and Bergeron easily dekes Anderson on a mini-breakaway
5. Boston, Paille
Rundblad comes down the wall and while Winchester covers for him Phillips has no idea Paille is well behind him–he scores on the breakaway
6. Spezza (Phillips, Alfredsson)
A great shot from the top of the faceoff dot
7. Boston, Paille
Simply beats Anderson with a routine shot

Top-performers:
Jason Spezza – a goal, an assist, no turnovers and he wasn’t a minus
Daniel Alfredsson – despite the giveaway on Boston’s third goal he lead the team in scoring chances and had a goal and an assist

Players who struggled:
Craig Anderson – let in two bad goals and was hopeless on two breakaways
Nick Foligno – invisible offensively and lead the team at -3
