True. The guy is good. One of the top in today's game. Real bad luck. or as he said.

As somebody posted about the protection in that part. Why is it not common will NHL players? Does it in any way changes the game or performance?

As you can imagine, that question has been asked a lot around Ottawa today, on TV/radio/in print/online. The best answer I've seen is from SportsNet/Team1200 presenter Jason York (former NHL player with Red Wings / Senators / Ducks / Predators / Bruins), who said that hockey players are creatures of habit and it's very had to change the habits, even for good reasons, and that's why most players don't wear the protective socks w/ Kevlar. He told the story that he had a nasty eye injury (detached retina!) and wore a visor for the rest of the season, but took it off the next year because he didn't like it. He knew he should wear it, but it just didn't "work" for him. It's no different with players and the protective socks: they don't feel quite the same, so it feels like additional weight and a movement restriction, so they don't use them as this sort of injury doesn't happen very often. It's rather like neck protectors that were asked about after Zednik's neck slash a few years ago -- how many NHLers are wearing them now?

Huge, huge win for the Sens today. Beating the Devils, with the best home record in the East, without Spezza, Karlsson and even Anderson.

Scoring is still an issue though. 1 goal in 30 shots.

It's going to be rough, but if they can beat the Devils they do stand a chance of making the playoffs.

Silfverberg shows just how good his shot actually is with that shootout goal. He just needs a bit more experience to be able to get shots like that off with defenders on the ice.

PP is now 0-25 in the last 25 chances. Scoring is going to be a problem for the rest of the year, and while I liked Gryba and Wiercioch I thought Lundin had another poor game. I'm all for sitting him and putting Wiercioch back with Benoit.

Great goal by Silfverberg in his first NHL shootout. His release is mind-blowingly quick, and he's been getting close to scoring over the past few games so here's to hoping it starts soon. Alfie said in an interview a few weeks ago that kids should look at Silfverberg's shot because it's that good and that quick -- this shootout was good evidence of what it can do.

Missing Cowan, Spezza, Karlsson, Michalek, along with Regin and Latendresse, and still pull out a win against the Devils. As B Murray would say, a car-ak-tur win.

How do you know a shot this fast is a goal? By Martin Brodeur's reaction. Even the slow-motion replay is fast.

What is it coming to when I'm happy to hear about a sprained ankle? Egad, another star with an injury.

Cowan - hip, season over
Spezza - back, could be back near end of season
Karlsson - Achilles, season over
Anderson - sprained ankle, day-to-day (likely several weeks)
Michalek - knee, could be back next week
Regin - chest, day-to-day
Latendresse - whiplash, day-to-day

In the Senators lineup were 11 players with less than 100 games of NHL experience. And Greening is just barely over 100.

Congrats to coach MacLean on a victory in his 100th game as a head coach in the NHL.

Yeah that looked horrible on replay... Ankle sprains are tricky I heard, could be a week could be a couple months if it's a high ankle sprain.

It's remarkable that the Sens haven't tanked already before this latest injury...

Karlsson just held his first presser since being injured...

He said he didn't think Cooke cut him intentionally, but he thought Cooke was out to hurt him

Sens are lucky to be tied after 2 periods. Shots are 30-15 for the Habs.

Bishop is really keeping the rest of the kids in the game.

Ben Bishop steals the game 2-1 after shoot out... PK Suban was playing like a punk on a pond with some of the moves he was trying. Some of his crap would be questionable in a rec hockey league let alone the NHL...

Bishop was out-freaking-standing. Thanks to a friend who got tickets at the last minute for the corporate box, I got to be at the game and was able to watch Bishop up close for the 1st and 3rd periods. His rebound control needs work, but his positioning and his size make him pretty formidable when he has his game going.

Subban didn't factor in to much in the game -- he looked out of shape and not up to the rush he's been able to pull off in the past (I watched him develop in Belleville in the OHL). Silfverberg's SO shot was amazing, and he's now 3-for-3 in them.

The Sens were outshot badly in the game, and still managed to win. Montreal got a point for going into OT, so they're still on top of the conference.

Sens are now 8-of-the-next-10 on the road, mostly against teams either equal to, just above, or just below them in the standings. If they can play .500 over the next few weeks, I'll be happy.

Those 44 saves last night were enough to push Bishop up to 3rd on the SV% leader board.

Anderson still has 1st locked up tight.

Sens players have showed some mental toughness all these games and are in good position. I might add envious position. Lets see the coach of the year award goes to whom.

that's why i said before, don't count out the Sens...great goaltending, well coached and plenty of quality young players eager to make a name for themselves...in a compressed short season like we have this year, that combination makes for a very dangerous team.

Yup, even without what you could argue is their top five players. In order of injury: Cowan, Spezza, Karlsson, Michalek, Anderson. While Anderson and 9MM could be back in a week or two, and Spezza might be back by the end of March, the other two are done for the season and EK65 likely won't be back to normal until early 2014 even if he's playing before then.

The farm team has been stocked well by Bryan Murray, and between former coach Kurt Kleinendorst and current coach Luke Richardson the Binghamton Senators have developed quite a lot of young talent over the past few seasons. In last night's game, there were (if memory serves correctly) 8 members of the Calder Cup winning team from only a few seasons ago (Gryba, Benoit, Daugavins, Dziurzynski, Greening, Condra, O'Brien, Lehner). Some of them wouldn't be playing if there weren't so many "big guns" out with injuries, but it speaks to the depth of the organization to be able to continue to win despite missing as much top end talent as the Senators are.

Sometimes when injured star players come back to an injury riddled team can be the worst thing that can happen, as it upsets the mindset of the players who have been overachieving as a result...

They tend to relax a bit, and those coming off injury can't get back to their top shape quickly enough.

Robin Lehner starting in nets tonight. A little surprising after Bishop's franchise-tying save count on Monday.

Lehner lost in OT, and today Bishop lost by one goal after the Senators had a good first period but failed to score, an okay-at-best second period, and a third period that was a mess for both teams.

I'll be interested to see what the result of the hearing it tomorrow for Harry Zolnierczyk, as I think this is a suspendable hit because (a) the primary point of contact was the head (it snaps back before the rest of Lundin's body moves), and (b) he lept in the air as he made contact. Was Lundin being foolish and skating with his head down? Yes, but that's doesn't negate (a) and (b). Kudos to K-Dawg going after Rinaldo even if he was the guilty party in this particular infraction (he'd been running people all day). K-Dawg isn't a fighter, but he was standing up for his teammate.

I think the replay on this feed is better than the SN one that we saw on TV earlier today:

probably get a game or two...Ludin needs to watch every episode of Coach's Corner to understand why you don't skate with your head down and/or come across the trolley tracks like that...as an observer, you could see that hit coming a mile away.

Agreed, Lundin deserved to be hit there. Shouldn't be much more discipline needed, maybe a game.

I don't think anyone is disputing that Lundin wasn't smart on that play, but that doesn't absolve responsibility for contact to the head and for the player jumping up when making the hit, both of which are against the rules. Zolnierczyk could have bailed on that hit and he could have kept his skates on the ice, but chose to do neither one and that's why he has a hearing. He got absolved of the accusation of a knee-on-knee a few weeks ago but I don't think that's going to happen this time.
