Anderson lifts Senators over Blackhawks 5-3
Question of the Day
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - The Ottawa Senators gained some confidence from beating the defending Stanley Cup champions.
“We found a way to win and that’s all that really matters,” Anderson said. “It felt good to come back from my whatever injury. Got back in there, get back in the saddle and it was good to see a lot of shots so you didn’t have time to think and you just kind of read and react so it was really good.”
Chicago has lost three of its past four and captain Jonathan Toews says there are too many mistakes happening when his team has possession of the puck.
“I’d say there were some good moments where we did have control of the puck where we were getting point shots and second efforts and some of the things we’re looking for when we’re playing good hockey,” Toews said.
“Other than that it was sloppy turnovers, sloppy mistakes that we really need to get out of our system. We need to get those plays out of our game. It’s as simple as that. We need to play some character hockey. Frustrating way to lose.”
Toews wasn’t alone in thinking the Blackhawks failed to show their best effort.
“I didn’t like our game,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. “We had a good start and obviously giving up a short-handed (goal) right off the bat they got some momentum off it and played well.”
Ottawa scored twice in the third and killed off a 34 second two-man advantage to hold off the Blackhawks.
Turris made it 4-2 with a power-play goal at the six-minute mark of the third and MacArthur scored his 23rd of the season midway through the period to make it 5-2.
“I thought we competed better,” MacArthur said. “We had a little lapse in the second, but you’re playing Chicago and they’re going to make a push, but we were able to make plays in the third and not clam up.”
Frustration started to set in for Chicago midway through the third when Andrew Shaw speared Zack Smith. Shaw was assessed a major and game misconduct.
Smith said he was less than impressed by the play.
