Ottawa 4, Tampa Bay 1

The Sens owe tonight’s two points to Craig Anderson, as for large stretches of tonight’s game (particularly in the second period) the Sens were badly outplayed.  The biggest issue for Ottawa was getting the puck out of their own zone and generating offence–far too much running around.  Click here for the box score.  A look at the goals:
1. Spezza (Greening, Gonchar)
Tips the Greening rebound through a shaky Roloson
2. Turris (Alfredsson, Condra)
A great tip on a delayed penalty call
3. Tampa Bay, Stamkos
Anderson makes the stop on Lecavalier, but he’s able to pass it out to Stamkos who both Karlsson and Smith miss on the back check
4. Smith (Alfredsson, Foligno)
Alfredsson creates the turnover and Smith wires it through Roloson
5. Alfredsson (Turris) (en)

Top-performers:
Craig Anderson – his best game of the year
Colin Greening – a monster defensively and picked up an assist

Players who struggled:
Milan Michalek – virtually invisible
Brian Lee – a couple of horrific turnovers
