Sens Fall to Leafs in Shootout

Sens Fall to Leafs in Shootout

Heading into the opening weekend of the season, the Senators would have probably been happy to come away with three of a possible four points.

And while a loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs always stings a little bit more, and letting a two goal lead slip away will do nothing to lift their spirits, three points is a pretty good outcome for the Sens in the season opening back to back.

They’ll now have a few days off between games which is probably a good thing for Head Coach Paul MacLean and his staff as there will certainly be a number of things to work on after last night’s 5-4 shootout loss at the Air Canada Centre.  While the Senators held a 4-2 lead at one point, their game was far too “loose”, as they allowed way too many high quality scoring chances.

Losing the lead was disappointing, but in all honesty, you could make the argument that Ottawa was actually lucky to come away with anything, considering how sloppy they were over the final 20 minutes. The good news is, the line of Clarke MacArthur, Kyle Turris and Cory Conacher were again terrific for the Senators and were by far the best trio MacLean threw over the boards last night.  If the top line can start to click, the Sens offence is going to be a handful.

The Senators have a full day off today before returning to ice for practice on Monday at 11:00 AM.  Ottawa then heads West for four straight including stops in Los Angeles, San Jose, Anaheim and Phoenix.

-In his first appearance of the season, Matt Kassian kept his gloves on and played just 4:49, which was almost seven minutes less than the next closest skater.  This was a relatively tame installment in the Battle of Ontario and there really wasn’t any need to have Kassian in there.  It will be interesting to see how the Sens use him, if at all, during the trip out West.  Would be nice to have Mika Zibanejad for that trip out West.
-The Mason Raymond shootout goal seemed fairly ridiculous.  While Anderson just tipped his hat and called it a “good goal”, it’s one the league is seriously considering removing from the shootout altogether.  Until that happens, Raymond is apparently free to stop, spin and shoot all he wants.

    We let that one get away. All the clichés apply here. Didn’t bury our chances and we had some sweet ones and then when they have a chance, we’re running around with the one Leaf wide open at the side of the net

  • Jacques

    I agree Chirp, Zibby would look good replacing Condra on the 3rd line. Then Condra can replace smith on the 4 line. Poor Pageau needs someone capable with some finish on his wing.

  • Sandy

    According to Paul McLean in his interview after the game.. they got notice that the type of spin-o-rama goal in OT was not going to be allowed… especially when you ‘snow’ the goaltender.. I thought the puck had to be in motion and the player was not allowed to stop. But didn’t matter as the Sens couldn’t score in the SO and the Leafs got 2..
    6 PP’s for the Leafs… 1 PP for the Sens. 2 goals on the PP for the Leafs — 0 for the Sens.
    33 giveaways by the Leafs. 14 by the Sens…
    13 PP’s for the opponents over 2 games. 5 for the Sens.
    Thanks Tim Peel… How they get you 2 games back to back is beyond me.
    Sens…. stay out of the box. Against a high flying team like the Leafs.. you can’t take penalties. Especially allowing a player to stand by himself at the side of the net on 2 of those 4 Leaf goals..
    Dave Cameron… start doing your job… or go elsewhere.
    Tough road trip coming up.. 4 games out West.. with another back to back.. Thanks NHL.

    • MikeS

      meh.This has been a problem for the past 10 years. Sens didnt have their best game anyways. Just sucks being in the GTA with leaf fans so cocky now :(

      • sprucesens

        sandy..

        what were the comments to Maclean? He was told that spinorama wouldn’t have been allowed? If so, there should have been another shot given to toronto. If no goal, sens would have been allowed the 3rd shot to tie it, no?

        • Sandy

          It was in his interview after the game.. You can find it on Sens TV..

          • SENSor

            The girl on CBC said that banning that move was discussed, but ultimately decided that it is legal shortly thereafter and will be legal for some time…She implied the walrus was off his tusks…

          • sprucesens

            Just watched the video. It was a conferance call to start the year with the coaches that said they were looking into it, but that no changes has been done. I guess its a ref’s decision if the puck and player were following the current rules. But i think if the rule states that you’ve got to keep moving forward, as well as the puck, just make the rule no spinorama’s. Can’t leave something like that to a ref. Take as much arbitrary calls out the game. Penalties and icing are enough for the refs to screw up. They don’t need to watch and see if the player and puck are still moving forward, that directly results in a goal or not.

      • s3nsfan

        Don’t worry when they lose their first of the season their bandwagon will be a lot less full and a lot less Leaf fans around

    • Conor_smythe

      Yup, if Cameron is actually the guy in charge of the PP, he needs to go

      You look at teams like the leafs, and they have 4 or 5 SET PLAYS on the PP

      They all know where the puck is going and how to get it there

      You look at Ottawa’s PP and its like they have zero strategy. Where are the systems? the trick plays? the “if you get into this situation, this is how you get out of it”?

      Right now it seems like Ottawa is playing every-man-for-himself type hockey.. and that just doesn’t work. We need to play more like a team.

    • aegiszx

      Dave Cameron has been “in charge” of the PP for THREE seasons now, and I’ve yet to see any improvement.

      It’s honestly a joke. The Hawks won the SC with the best ranked PK, and the worst ranked PP in the league, along with a lot of luck. I’d rather not test our luck… Just improve the PP to a respectful %…

      • SENSor

        Cameron is Eugene’s boy, no?

        • hq8

          yup. cut-protected :p lol the PP has sucked pretty badly and has been masked by overall team success. but its a shame given the pieces on this team that the PP doesnt work. the bodies are there and the skill and talent are there too.
          i feel sometimes that turris just has better execution than spezza. is it because of quality of defense faced – maybe/probably.

    • The Apostle

      Have you ever considered that the reason Sens get called for a lot of penalties is because the Sens keep doing stuff that’s gonna get called. I don’t recall any one of the penalties against the leafs being a bad call. Stop blaming the refs and blame the players.

  • SpezzaFan19

    Lehner should always play at least one of the back-to-back games from now on.

  • jasonontheoldsenschirp

    Kyle Turris was great

    • SpezzaFan19

      Turris played more than any other Ottawa forward last night.
      Captain Spezza has taught him well.

      • SENSor

        Who will teach Spezza?

      • Turret

        haahahhahahahaha… Turris can teach Spezza how to skate.

  • John

    Turris and the whole second line were very good. Sens maintained possession and dominated on the Fenclose stat all game long. I don’t know what some of you other fans were watching but Ottawa more or less dominated that game. Even the Michalek-Spezza-Ryan line, which many of you seem to think had a lousy night, was basically owning the puck every time they were on the ice. How little did you hear the name Kessel tonight, or Lupul, or Kadri? That’s because Ottawa dominated the puck. Nine times out of ten Ottawa wins that game 5-6-7 to 1. So many chances to score just didn’t quite click. The goals Toronto scored were because of typical early season breakdowns. A few bad penalties to give up and a few lazy plays defensively on those PK’s // in general. Oh… and did I mention Ottawa was on the SECOND half of BACK-TO-BACK games and STILL skated all over Toronto? We beat the crap out of them. What game were you EFFING watching? Oh and Toronto gets 6 PP’s to Ottawa’s 1. Not to mention the “stopping is now allowed” shoot-out goal.

    Yes the team was loose in some aspects of the game. It’s game 2 of 82. They were still much better than the Laughs. Not worried in the slightest.

    • hq8

      agree. and hence the result. whats frustrating is knowing that we could have avoided some of the stuff that led to the loss as its chintsy stuff that added up. e.g. the two penalties (karlsson’s and spezza’s) were the laziest ever and both caused goals. if those two penalties dont happen, sens would have vaporized ACC by the end of the 2nd and all of us would be having a cheery sunday given the weather.

    • sprucesens

      i heard kessel, and kadri every time they were on the ice and created chances against us…?? They also scored against us, as well as raymond was a force all night long. Not a chance we outplayed them that 9 times out of 10 we win that game 5-6-7 to 1. The penalty ratio has been, and always will be like that, especially against toronto. Having said that, there wasn’t much that i saw that should have been a penalty against toronto. Maybe could have been a few less against us, that were questionable though.

      I’m all for the optimism for the team, and yes it was a back to back to start the season, but lets be realistic. Aside from the shitty shootout goal allowed, we deserved it no more than they did. Its rust that we’ll shake off, and chemistry that needs building. Aside from the 2nd line, i’d say that was our worst performance this year(preseason included), despite scoring 4 goals. But take that as a good thing, as we still managed 4 goals, and to take the game to shootout while being on a back to back, with a 6:1 pp disadvantage, with one of them a 5 on 3. I’ll take the point and move on.

  • hq8

    CLICHE ALERT.
    “If the top line can start to click, the Sens offence is going to be a handful.”

    as much as ottawa was lucky to come away with anything, i think toronto was just as lucky as they were not any cleaner in their zone.

    i think the most damaging part to ottawa’s game yesterday was the erik karlsson brain farts. based on his to-date performance, the expectations are high and he is going to have to be (and obviously will be) much more consistent at his peak level. the whole offense of the ottawa senators revolves around karlsson especially at the number of minutes he crunches. if he starts giving in performances like yesterdays regularly, then we are in real trouble.

  • sprucesens

    Turris line was great as everyone has pointed out. Karlsson looked as bad as he did when he came back too early last year. Top line were all trying to be too fancy. A few more games of that, if the coach can’t get them to quit it, split them up. I’d say the most invisible players last night were:

    condra, corvo, greening, karlsson. Pageau needs to be moved in the lineup. No point playing him with talentless players. Corvo we knew would suck, karlsson needs to really pick it up, like we know he is capable of. Greening and Condra need to realize that if smith keeps playing decently, they are next in the picking order of players to lose their spots to harder working rookies. IF the top line keeps doing too much and requires shuffling, maybe longer term proposed lines…

    Pageau-Spezza-Ryan
    Conacher-Turris-MacArthur
    Michalek-Da Costa-Zibanejad
    Greening-Smith-Neil
    Condra, Kassian.

    Can swap da costa to the box for condra and move zib to center. Or swap zib with pageau. I know zib isn’t currently on the team. But i think we all know he will be back. Those look like 3 talent packed scoring lines, and 1 bang’m up line. I still feel Da Costa won’t be on the team for any length of time. But he was one of our 3 best in camp, so we’ll see. Its only 2 games, and 3 of 4 points is a great start to a road trip. Hopefully Coach Maclean can light a bit of a fire under the top line so no shuffling is needed, and they can build chemistry, but it almost might be to much talent on one line. They almost need someone who will just skate fast and hard every shift, and still finish hits, and goals. Anyways, Fun to be talking hockey again, even after a SO loss to the bad guys…

    • Jacques

      Something like that would be awesome no with swapping Condra to the third line. Condra is 4th line at best. Sens have to realize that 2 scoring lines won’t cut it. They have the fire power to build 3 lines like the Leafs do! Than you have your 4 th line.

  • Icelevel

    gotta get that guy at the side of the net. do that and easy W

    shouldn’t these comments sort by newest post to oldest (top to bottom)?

          Yup. You can sort by newest, oldest and best. Pretty handy little function.

          • Icelevel

            ah, ok. i looked for that and didn’t see it. guess i didn’t look good enough. thanks mom

  • MoeDozer

    at least there was some very good positives from this game. other than sluggish play and sometimes invisible play by many of our top guns. the key to winning in playoffs is always secondary scoring. now we need to get the primary scoring going soon…

    also anyone have notes on the bingo game? i see the boxscore indicating a 4-3 OT win

    ceci 1g1a 5shots
    petersson 1a 5shots
    zibanejad 1g 4shots

    zibby with the game tying goal and ceci with the OT winner

    • SENSor

      That’s the good news – the shitty news is that Boro and Stone left the game early with injuries…

  • Sandy

    Is the top line overthinking… overdoing.. trying to force it .. rather than just playing?
    Anyway.. if someone would have told us that in the first 2 road games of the season, the Sens would have 3 out of a possible 4 pts… we would have been happy..
    If TIMWRX.. can confirm this.. but I read that Stone got injured in the B-Sens game last night..

    • SENSor

      Do you ever think MM is the problem on the first line? We always assume that’s where he slots in, but I’m not so sure…It will be very interesting to see if he is re-signed…

      • sprucesens

        depends if we have one of our rookie wingers step up. Prince, Hoffman, Stone, Puempel. lesser extent Robinson, maybe can come in and push other wingers up. If he stays healthy, and takes a paycut, i can see us keeping him, on a 2-3 year contract.

        • SENSor

          Unfortunately, I don’t think we have the answer in our system at this time…I would probably let MM sign elsewhere at the end of his contract and then make a Bobby Ryan type trade for a legitimate first line left winger…easier said than done, I suppose…

          • sprucesens

            yeah, that could happen, but we need to keep some prospects and groom them our way also. Can’t trade for everyone and stack other team’s. I’m thinking stone and hoffman will get some time this year when injuries occur.

      • sprucesens

        i also don’t think he’s a “problem” but maybe too much of the same type of player as the other 2. I mentioned moving him around. Without breaking up the 2nd line though, he falls to 3rd, but gives us 3 great lines. Just tough to figure who would slot in on the top line though, with only centers to fill the void. (pageau, da costa, call up zibby) I guess you could move greening up, condra down to 4th… I’m not a fan of greening on the top line though..

      • GoSensGoEh

        I like Milan on the first line, especially since Spezza and Ryan are avg skaters. Add in Milans size in the corners, and he is a good compliment there. As Ryan said, Milan keeps the other teams defense honest with his speed, they have to be wary of pinching in too far.

  • MoeDozer

    Richardson on Ceci after Game 1: “He won’t be here very long, probably, if he continues like this.”

    http://www.senatorsextra.com/main/borowiecki-stone-injured-in-b-sens-opener

    ceci had increased ice time due to boro leaving the game early with an injury. he got 1st star of the game. zibby 3rd star.

    not sure what his or stone’s injuries are but hope its minor..

    • sprucesens

      like those comments about Ceci. Maybe by trade deadline we see him in a few games. Imagine this instead of current D

      Methot-Karlsson
      Wiercioch-Cowen
      Phillips-Ceci
      Gryba

      corvo in the pressbox enjoying his free million dollars.

    • GoSensGoEh

      That OT goal Ceci scored was calm and calculated. He slowed, let the defense slide by and then buried it. Great composure.

  • SENSor

    If you check out the boxscore from last night’s drubbing of 7 – 0 St. Louis over Florida, you will see our old friend Jesse Winchester received a 10 minute game misconduct in a battle with David Backes near the end of the match… ‘Atta boy, Jesse!
    Also of interest, Matt Gilroy was a healthy scratch for the Panthers…

  • sprucesens

    haha, hey chirp, not that it matters much, but i can up vote my own comments. seems a little wierd and self serving no? Could that be turned off? I upvoted this comment!

    • SensChirp

      A little pat on the back from yourself is never a bad thing. Self-serve away, I say!

      • sprucesens

        lol. ok. Don’t let tookie know though. Delete this post immediately!!!! aaaarrggghhhh!!!!

  • MoeDozer

    wow turris managed to go +3 yesterday putting him at a +4 this year. tied for 2nd for league lead.

    i know +/- means nothing and is generally an odd stat that sometimes gets weighted too heavily but if anyones watched turris play and that 2nd line in general will tell you that +4 is completely earned

  • NickofTime

    I agree with you Chirp that it would be nice to have Zibanejad along for the Sen’s western trip but it seems they want to teach the youngster a lesson in professionalism. I’m a big proponent of strength down the middle & while Da Costa & Pageau have both had good preseasons it doesn’t mean very much to me in the regular season & bigger picture. Which begs the question, can Ottawa win consistently with two small centres in this league that keeps getting bigger? My answer is no, we can afford one but not two. And I add to that with Spezza & Turris as our top two centres & Zibanejad as a very good third centre where does that put Pageau & Da Costa? Pageau has become an idol in Ottawa since his playoff heroics against the diminutive Habs & plays a very steady good game but is Zibanejad long term going to be the better player? My answer is yes.

    IMO I think that Ottawa brass are just waiting for Zibanejad & Stone to be NHL ready. While they already have the size & strength to compete at this level their thinking & mindset may not quite be up to professional standards. I mean this in that they are both still young & may not yet have grasped what it is to be a professional hockey player. We have seen numerous good young stars crash & burn, Filatov comes to mind. I doubt either Stone or Zibanejad will burn but instead I believe both have the capability to flourish & again IMO those two are exactly what Ottawa needs to create a third line which is big & hard to play against that can also score. A third line of Greening, Zibanejad & Stone would not only be big but they would also be fast & have the ability to put points on the board as they mature.

    We have the big line with Michalek, Spezza & Ryan, we have the secondary scoring in MacArthur, Turris & Conacher & we have a 4th line of Kassian, Z. Smith & Neil for those tough physical games. A third line of Greening, Zibanejad & Stone would add another dimension that maybe this team is lacking & maybe we see for the stretch run & playoffs. Have a great day.

  • Steve Hyland-Rule

    RE the SHootout:

    Maclean said there were no rules in the shootout and the league said it wasn’t going to remove it. Spins are allowed as long as there is a forward motion.

    March 12, 2013:
    “I had no issue with it at all,” MacLean said. “I thought it was pretty creative. The crowd seemed like they enjoyed it. It didn’t go in, but imagine if it had gone in the net. If it caused this much of a stir by not scoring, imagine if it had gone in the net.”
    In MacLean’s opinion, the shootout is an opportunity for players to display their creativity.

    “Some people might say it’s against the rules, but there are no rules it’s a shootout. You’re just trying to score goals,” said MacLean. “The shootout is a skills competition is it not?”

    The NHL’s general managers were hoping to make the spin-o-rama in shootouts illegal for this season, but there was no support at the NHLPA level.

    Mike Murphy, the NHL’s Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations, told NHL.com that he isn’t sure if the general managers will review the topic again in the near future.

    “I would say it’s put to bed for a few years,” Murphy said.

    24.2 Procedure

    The spin-o-rama type move where the player completes a 360° turn as he approaches the goal, shall be permitted as this involves continuous motion.

    Checked it out, and I agree this is garbage. It is just sensationalism meant to cater to the lowest common denominator. I figure maybe the positive comments supporting his drivel can be down arrowed and deleted.

    Amazing highlights from the baby Sens! Ceci is really talented! Grant still scratching My head on why he isn’t our4th line center!

  • Sandy

    So Boro & Stone both got injured last night?

    • SensChirp

      Yup. In the case of Stone, he’s still be evaluating but could miss up to a month. Have to hope it’s not as serious as originally thought.

      Borowiecki is apparently just a “stiff neck”

  • thepez

    Here is my take on the first two games.

    Real happy on getting 3 out of possible 4 points. My concern is that the Senators are playing like a team that feels they deserve a favorite tag. They figure they can play the way they want and that they will win the way the players want to play. Loosy Goosy. The best thing that could have happened was the loss on saturday. Coach Mac will get there attention and tighten up. The Sens can’t play a run and gun style and expect to win. I expect a much more defensive minded team when they go out west this week..

  • Robert Cyr

    Would love to see the Sens play inspired 2 way hockey, in upcoming 4 game
    road trip, starting with the Kings on Wednesday night.

    Winning 3 of 4 would be a realistic goal, and returning home on Oct 17 to face
    the NJ Devils, they could easily be challenging for Atlantic Division.

    Right now Line 2 is our best line, and we need Line 1 to get productive!

    Good Morning Chirpland, hope everyone had a good weekend. Too bad we lost to the Leafs but it was a good game and having picked up 3 of 4 points before heading out west I’d say it was successful. Nice that the Sens get this road trip out of the way early.

    Finally got in! Thanks Chirp!

  • SensChirp

    And we have our first coaching change of the NHL season. Peter Laviolette is out in Philadelphia. Craig Berube likely to replace him.

    • xN1Cx

      Wow didn’t really see that coming. Seems to be the trend as of late though. Coaches seem more expendable now more than ever.

      One thing not expendable? Coach Paulrus – man this guys a gem!

      • SensChirp

        So weird that they thought it was a good idea to start the season with him and then fire him after just three games. Holmgren is the worst.

        • xN1Cx

          Agreed – any other teams off the top of your head that could be looking this year? Seems a tonne just got new jobs….

          • The Apostle

            Not saying I would agree with the decisions if they were to happen, but Minnesota spent a LOT of money, you have to figure they are going to want a more tangible result than the first round of the playoffs. Maybe Dineen in Florida if they suck as badly as normal. Left field suggestion Hitchcock in St Louis has to start translating the regular season success into meaningful playoff performances soon.

    • s3nsfan

      Yeah I have to say that is odd. 3 games, man with that thinking at 3-0 leafs fans are probabey saying just give them the cup and award Carlyle the Jack Adams lol

  • The Apostle

    By the end of this season Clarke MacArthur will be viewed as Bryan Murray’s best ever Free Agent pick up for the Senators. Discuss.

    • s3nsfan

      I’m not commenting on future outcomes, but i will say this, does that line not look sick or WHAT. Get that top line going even better and that top 6 is gonna look super nice.

      Had a thought on the weekend, how old is Craig Anderson 32? Basically for a goalie right in his prime, what if the senators traded Lehner for another legit top 3 to replace Michalek next summer. Anderson is good for at LEAST 5 more years and we have 3 other goalies in the wings.

      Discuss…. let the hate begin lol

      • xN1Cx

        Question I think about when reading this is would it be wider to trade him or to trade Anderson – if we went that route of course. Lehner likely wouldn’t get us a top 3 forward but Andy would perhaps.
        Although I would be extremely sad to see either go.

        • s3nsfan

          Hey and maybe that’s the way to go, I had just thought of Lehner cause Anderson is our #1 right now. Think about a nice healthy winger to add with Ryan and Spezza and have that 2nd Turris line.

          That’s a scary 1/2 not to mention having greening-pageau-condra hem the other team in their own zone and wear them out.

    • FBP

      The best part about MacArthur is that (after reading his interviews this weekend) it seems like he might have chosen Ottawa just so he could stick it to the Leafs/Carlyle regularly and thoroughly.

  • Dr.Hockey

    I tuned down the white a couple of degrees. Let me know what you guys think!

    No Jason Spezza at practice this morning.

  • matsoukas45

    I think they played so so but when they were up by 2 the refs got involved,every little thing the sens did penalty but they didn`t get a power play after they were up by 2

    My biggest concern Saturday was the play of Corvo. He lost every battle for the puck and made stupid decisions all night. Am I the only one missing André Benoit? Colorado are 2-0 and Benoit plays 22 min per game. Not bad.

      I think Benoit knew he wasn’t going to get 20+ minutes in Ottawa and left for a better opportunity. BUt yes I miss him and good luck to him.
