Senators News: February 22nd

-Here are my thoughts on last night’s game; Scott had the scoring chances 16/13.  The game was punctuated by an injury to Craig Anderson, but fortunately it’s nothing more serious than a sprained ankle.

-As expected, the team has recalled Robin Lehner, while also sending Stephane Da Costa back to Binghamton.  Da Costa‘s play hasn’t been terrible, but clearly he wasn’t doing enough to stay in the lineup.

-I agree wholeheartedly with Varada that Eugene Melnyk would do his players a favour if he spoke less with the media.

Erik Karlsson talked about his injury and Matt Cooke; nothing particularly surprising in his comments:

Ever since I got in the league he’s one of the guys I remember playing against and always being aware of him. It’s a freak incident that should not have happened. He said what he thought was right. At least he reached out, which I didn’t expect, but we’re going to leave it at that. I had a guy behind me, and I know exactly who it was, so I was taking a bit of caution. Missed the hit and still got me somehow. The situation could have been prevented. I don’t think it would have happened if it was another type of player, but I don’t think his intention was to cut me with his skate. I refuse to believe anyone would do that. I still think the situation and this injury could have been prevented.

-Binghamton faces Hershey (24-20-7) tonight; the Bears are lead by Jeff Taffe (42 points) and backstopped by Philipp Grubauer (5-3-1 1.91 .931).  Nathan Lawson is expected to get the start; Marc Cheverie and Jean Bourbeau (52-17-17-34) have been called up to the B-Sens.
