Ottawa 6, Philadelphia 4

The Senators bailed out Craig Anderson in beating the Flyers, rallying in the third period to overcome a 4-2 deficit.  The game drifted from intense to sleepy (particularly in the second period), but as has been the norm this season the Sens created excitement at the finish.  Here is the box score.  A look at the goals:
1. Alfredsson (Turris, Cowen)
Left all alone in front he makes no mistake off Turris’ great pass
2. Philadelphia, Meszaros
Drifts a shot through Anderson
3. Neil (Foligno, Karlsson)
Bangs in Karlsson’s rebound
4. Philadelphia, Bourdon
Floats the puck past Anderson
5. Philadelphia, Couturier
Decides to shoot on the 2-on-1 and Anderson is off his angle
6. Philadelphia, Read (pp)
Cashes in a rebound
7. Greening (Spezza, Michalek)
Greening’s cross-ice pass is deflected into his own net by Carle
8. Karlsson (unassisted)
Steals the puck from Jagr and shoots on the odd-man rush, beating Bryzgalov 5-hole
9. Kuba (Condra, Alfredsson)
Point shot deflects in off Hartnell
10. Foligno (Neil) (en)
Neil creates the turnover that gets Foligno the empty-netter

Top-performers:
Filip Kuba – scores the game winner and is (again) a monster defensively
Erik Karlsson – tied the game and picked up another assist

Players who struggled:
Craig Anderson – let in three bad goals (the first two being particularly awful)
Matt Carkner – took two dumb penalties and is lucky the team didn’t pay for them
Jason Spezza – lead the team in turnovers and made them in dangerous areas
