Senators News: April 8th; Ottawa 1 Florida 2

-Ottawa lost 2-1 to Florida last night.  Craig Anderson made 15 saves in the loss (the Sens had 41 shots); Cory Conacher scored the only goal.  I only saw the first two periods of the game in which the Sens dominated the Panthers, so it was certainly a winnable game, but for all the bounces that went the Sens way earlier in the season they aren’t getting them now.  The result is a slap in the face to Paul MacLean who inexplicably decided this was a “must win” game (I don’t think we’ll hear that language from him again until a game truly is a “must win”).  Here’s the boxscore.
