Senators News: March 17th; Ottawa 4, Buffalo 3 (OT)

-Ottawa defeated Buffalo 4-3 yesterday, overcoming a shaky start (falling behind 2-0) to rally to a 3-2 lead and eventually win the game in overtime.  Ben Bishop made 25 saves for the win while Kyle Turris (2), Patrick Wiercioch, and Chris Phillips scored the goals.  The Sens deserve credit for overcoming the early deficit.  Matt Kassian barely played in his debut (3:21), which was as expected, and did not look like he belonged on the ice.  Here is the boxscore and here’s Mark Parisi‘s lengthy description of the game.

-The Sens play Winnipeg (15-11-2) this afternoon; the Jets are lead by Andrew Ladd (28 points) and backstopped by Ondrej Pavelec (12-11-2 2.75 .904).

-Binghamton crushed Norfolk 5-1 yesterday; Nathan Lawson made 42 saves for the win, while Mark Stone, Chris Wideman, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Wacey Hamilton, and Michael Sdao (his first professional goal) scored.  Sdao also fought in his first game, so it has been an auspicious beginning for the rugged defenseman (this was his second game).  Here’s the boxscore.
