Ottawa 0 Winnipeg 1

In what was a good road game for Winnipeg, but a bad game for entertainment, Ottawa fell 1-0 to the Jets and continued their habit that began in Carolina of giving mediocre goaltenders (Al Montoya) easy shutouts.  The Sens were awful in the first and mediocre to bad the rest of the way (their powerplay was atrocious).  Here’s the boxscore.

Game Notes
Peter Regin only played 3:48 before leaving the game with an injury
Ben Bishop was excellent in the loss
-it was a rough night for a number of players, but Erik Karlsson (lot’s of turnovers including the one that lead to the Jets only goal) and Mike Lundin (bad decisions and on his one scoring chance firing it at Montoya‘s chest) stood out among them
-the tendency of players to over pass the puck continues (Daugavins in the slot in the first springs to mind)
-it was a good night for Stephane Da Costa despite being unable to cash in on opportunities (his best was off a great pass from Patrick Wiercioch that sent him in all alone); he also threw a big hit on Ponikarovsky
Zack Smith took yet another dumb penalty in the game–I’m not sure how much reputation plays into that
Montoya‘s reaction to the win struck me as a little over the top

The Goal
1. Winnipeg, Ponikarovsky
Karlsson turns it over and Ponikarovsky tips Enstrom’s shot passed Bishop
