Ottawa 1, Carolina 2 (OT)

Ottawa got a point they didn’t deserve in their loss tonight thanks to goaltending (for, I believe, the first time this year).  They were awful in the first period and while they gradually improved it was a struggle all night. Mike Hoffman looked good in limited action and it was another poor night for the officials (Mike Hasenfratz and Francois St. Laurent).  For the box score go here link.  A look at the goals:
1. Carolina, Nodl
His pass bounces in off the skate of Carkner
2. Kuba (Foligno, Turris)
Floats a shot threw Ward
3. Carolina, Ruutu
A great tip off a Harrison shot

Top-performers:
Craig Anderson – made 36 saves and did not allow a bad goal
Filip Kuba – was excellent defensively and scored the only goal

Players who struggled: the whole team struggled, but no one was particularly heinous.  I thought Matt Carkner was too scrambly in his own zone and Chris Phillips had a couple of egregious turnovers.
