First one to the Sens
A night of roller coaster emotions. From the highs and lows of the opening period when Ottawa outplayed the Leafs but trailed 1-0 to a growing frustration in the 2nd when an obvious offensive powerhouse failed to have a shot on net during the first 10 minutes of the period.
Then, when Murray put Alfredsson with Spezza and Heatley together for the first time you just knew it was going to make something happen. Their next shift produced the first goal and the same threesome put in the tying goal.
What a game to start the shootout! Hasek must be one of the most intimidating goalies to face in that situation and predictably Toronto failed to get a shot on net on their two breakaways.
More comments from this side tomorrow.
