Game One: Canadiens vs. Senators Results

The first game in the Ottawa Senators vs. Montreal Canadiens Eastern Conference Quarterfinal Series resulted in a 4-3 regulation win by the Canadiens. The Sens began the scoring in the first when Andrei Markov misplayed the puck into his own net. The goal was credited to Ottawa’s Milan Michalek, with no recorded assists. The Habs scored the next two goals, only 15 seconds apart in the middle of the second period. These goals were scored by Torrey Mitchell then Tomas Plekanec with assists by Brian Flynn and P.K. Subban, and Alex Galchenyuk and P.K. Subban, respectively. Ottawa tied the game again when Kyle Turris scored on a power play with assists from both Mika Zibanejad and Patrick Wiercioch. Then, when Ottawa was again on a power play, Montreal scored. Lars Eller scored the short handed goal with an assist from Brian Flynn. The Senators then fought to tie the game with a goal from Mika Zibanejad, assisted by Patrick Wiercioch and Erik Karlsson. Brian Flynn scored the Canadiens’ game-winning goal with less than 3 minutes left in the second period, with help from Brandon Prust and Nathan Beaulieu.

The prediction that the Habs were going to take the lead on the Senators proved to be true after Wednesday night’s game. However, the prediction that Ottawa may have taken the win for the night was incorrect. The popular vote was that the Senators had a real chance at winning the game for their coach but, this wasn’t the outcome. An accurate prediction was the outstanding performance of Canadien’s goalie Carey Price. Price played a great game. He played like the top-goalie that he is titled as. Especially when it counted, Carey Price made impossible saves.

As for defense, the match-up between Erik Karlsson and P.K. Subban was halted last night after Subban was thrown out of the game. P.K. was thrown out for purposely injuring a player by the name of Mark Stone. Stone finished the game, after going to the tunnel, turned out that he had a micro-fracture in his wrist. Subban had attempted to slash him earlier that game, and fulfilled it later that period. Forwards played all in all equally but, in the end the Habs were able to get more pucks by the Senators’ goalie Andrew Hammond.

The two teams face-off again Friday night at 7 pm. To win, the Senators are going to have to come out with a bang! The Canadiens are a strong team and are proving to be a challenge for Ottawa. It would be great to see Ottawa accept the challenge and come out on top as the underdogs.
