Ottawa 3 New York Rangers 2 (SO)

The Sens overcame an ankle injury to Craig Anderson and falling behind 2-1 to win 3-2 in a shootout.  Anderson made 21 saves without giving up a goal before the injury, while Ben Bishop picked up the win with 11 saves and stopping 6 of 7 Rangers shooters in the shootout.  Jakob Silfverberg and Mika Zibanejad scored in regulation while Silfverberg and Kaspars Daugavins scored in the shootout.  Ottawa played better than they did against the Islanders, but the game could have easily gone the other way.  Here’s the boxscore.

Game Notes
-the amount of interference allowed by the officials in the game occasionally reached the point of the ridiculous
-speaking of officials, the Sens were denied a 3-on-1 after a linesman was hit by the puck on the way in and was injured
-it was another strong game for Silfverberg who played the second most among forwards (behind only Kyle Turris)
Daniel Alfredsson saved a goal in the first period with a nice butterfly save when Anderson was out of position off the initial shot
Zack Smith crushed Brad Richards in the second
Anderson‘s injury was the unfortunate result of Chris Kreider stepping on Marc Methot‘s stick and crashing into him
Methot lost his check on the first Ranger goal; the second was a seeing-eye shot through a crowd that I think Bishop would like back (the puck went through him)
-it was another strong game for David Dziurzynski; if he keeps up the level of his play he’ll be hard to send down
