Ottawa 3, Buffalo 2 (SO); Binghamton 2, Syracuse 6

Ottawa edged the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 last night in a game they dominated, out shooting Buffalo 46-28 and hitting six posts/crossbars.  They lost Sergei Gonchar in warm-up after he took a puck in the head from Kyle Turris and then lost Filip Kuba late in overtime as he was pushed awkwardly into the boards.  The Sens were also guilty of taking a ton of dumb penalties.  Click here for the box score.  A look at the goals:

4. Neil (Condra, Smith)

Erik Condra – a great game in all three zones and assisted on both goals
Filip Kuba – a rock defensively

Players who struggled:
Jared Cowen – lead the team in turnovers and seems to have lost his confidence
