On other notes, the team was otherwise OK. A little rusty looking and a little uncomfortable together yet, but I can see Fisher and Kovalev getting along well in the future. Kovy played a great game as did Ilya Zubov. Erik Karlsson continues to slowly improve and new addition Jonathan Cheechoo seems to fit in well at this early phase. He had an assist on Chris Phillips lone Ottawa goal.
Good thing it's only the preseason or Sens fans will start to panic. This is what the preseason is for. Trying new line combinations, giving some youngsters a look and fine tuning some coaching strategies. This team will be OK.
