Turris vs. Rangers: Missed it by that much

MONTREAL – Kyle Turris might have had his best game as an Ottawa Senator in Thursday’s 3-0 win over the New York Rangers but you could never tell it from the scoresheet.
He didn’t have a goal, or an assist.
But Turris, who led the team with four shots, had the most chances. Trouble was, he was like Maxwell Smart: missed it by that much.
He hit a crossbar, a post, got robbed on a good glove save by Henrik Lundqvist, and had a breakaway attempt slide off his stick.
The only consolation, and a big one, was that the team won.
“It is frustrating when I don’t capitalize on my opportunities, but I can’t change what I’m doing because I’m frustrated, because then it’ll never go in,” he said.
“I’m just going to keep shooting and things are bound to go in eventually.”
He attributes the steadily increasing improvement in his play to his increasing comfort level in Ottawa and with his teammates. After the upheaval of the trade, his schedule is back to normal.
“I’m getting more used to the system here, more comfortable with the guys, and I feel more and more confident each game,” he said.
