The Lucky 7’s were everywhere Tuesday for the Ottawa Senators, while the Washington Capitals’ long losing slide continued without their Great 8.
In a game that featured huge shifts of momentum, the Montreal Canadiens, who squandered a 3-0 first-period lead, escaped Ottawa with a 5-4 win over the Senators when P.K. Subban scored 23 seconds into overtime.
After a first period flurry, a fortunate broken stick and a few timely saves, the Ottawa Senators could fly home full of positive feelings Tuesday night.
The Ottawa Senators can certainly take something out of Wednesday’s game, picking up a point after an awful start.
On an afternoon when Marc Methot appeared poised to play the hometown hero, it was a former Ottawa Senator who stole the show.
It’s the same old story, the same old broken record.
