Senators News: January 28th; Ottawa 1, Pittsburgh 2 (SO)

-The Sens lost 2-1 in a shootout against the Penguins in a game I sadly missed (as did Daniel Alfredsson, although in his case he was sick).  Craig Anderson made 33 saves in the loss (none in the shootout) while Colin Greening scored the only goal.  The Sens were only given two powerplays which doesn’t help their offense.  Here’s the boxscore.

Paul MacLean was pleased with his team’s effort:

I thought it was a great game — we went up and down the rink … I think we were playing against arguably the best team in the east and, one way or another, I thought we played a good game.

Mika Zibanjead has been called up from Binghamton and it wouldn’t be surprising if he made it into the lineup if Alfredsson is still sick (neither Kaspars Daugavins or Peter Regin are playing much).

Mark Parisi has his ups and downs for the week that was in Sens land.

-Elmira crushed Trenton 8-1 last night despite being outshot; Dustin Gazley had four points while Louie Caporusso had two.

Pierre LeBrun offers up his power rankings and slots Ottawa 11th.
