Ottawa 2, Philadelphia 3 (OT)

Ottawa lost a point to the officiating of Kevin Pollock and Dean Morton and Chris Phillips served up another with a brutal turnover.  The game itself was entertaining with lot’s of speed and chances, as well as witnessing Kyle Turris’ second-ever NHL fight.  Click here for the box score.  A look at the goals:
1. Philadelphia, Briere
Flubs his initial shot which Anderson over commits too and then bangs in the rebound unopposed
2. Michalek (Gonchar, Karlsson) (pp)
Bangs in the rebound
3. Butler (Karlsson, Kuba)
Great patience putting in the rebound
4. Philadelphia, Briere (pp)
Tips-in the Timonen shot
5. Philadelphia, Briere
Brutal giveaway by Phillips is centered by Voracek and Briere slides it through Anderson

Top-pPlayers:
Erik Karlsson – two assists and a strong game overall
Filip Kuba – played a ridiculous 30:20, picked up an assist and was great defensively

Players Who Struggled:
Chris Phillips – under no pressure whatsoever throws the puck away and cannot recover to prevent the game-winner
Nick Foligno – a -2 and invisible except for one OT shift
