Senators News: April 13th; Ottawa 2, New Jersey 0

-Ottawa defeated the Devils 2-0 last night in an entertaining game reminiscent of the Sens earlier in the season; Ottawa was heavily outshot (33-11), but won via superior goaltending (Craig Anderson got the shutout) and timely scoring (Jean-Gabriel Pageau with his first and Milan Michalek with a goal on his return).  Without Matt Kassian in the lineup Paul MacLean rolled four lines (Cory Conacher played the least).  Here’s the boxscore.

Scott had the scoring chances in the Flyer game 17/11.

-Binghamton beat Albany 5-3 last night, with Nathan Lawson picking up the win and Cole Schneider (2), David Dziurzynski, Mark Stone, and Corey Cowick scoring the goals.  Free agent signee Buddy Robinson picked up a pair of assists for his first points as a pro.  Here’s the boxscore and the highlights.  The B-Sens play Albany again this afternoon.

-Elmira lost to Florida last night, so they trail the series 3-1 now; Louie Caporusso picked up an assist and Jack Downing had a goal.

Ken Warren re-visits Randy Carlyle’s crazy explanation for concussions and explores it a little:

If Randy Carlyle’s theory about tight helmets causing the brain to swell – “heat expands and cold contracts,” he said – indirectly leading to concussions, wouldn’t we all be at risk of head injuries by simply wearing a hat in the winter? This being Masters’ weekend, do you think the Maple Leafs coach might just want to take a mulligan on voicing a crazy theory that he didn’t bother running by doctors trained in the field of concussions?
