Great team effort tonight by the Sens in getting out of their recent 5 game funk.
Goaltending had been a problem over that stretch and it cost goalie coach, Eli Wilson his job. Long overdue move in my opinion.
The team ended up doing more about their goaltending tonight than just fire an over rated, teflon coach. Starter Pascal Leclaire was injured in practice and backup Brian Elliot was puking his guts out all day with the flu according to the New York media.
Enter: Mike Brodeur on emergency call up. Thank God the Sens' affiliate was in Binghamton, NY and they were playing in New York City.
Now the team has a bit of a quagmire. Brodeur has been absolutely BRILLIANT in his 2 career NHL starts with the Senators, allowing only 1 goal in that stretch and collecting 2 wins, 1 by shutout.
Will the Sens send Leclaire down to Binghamton for a conditioning stint once he recovers from his latest puck-in-the-face injury? Probably not a bad idea.
If Clouston doesn't start Brodeur against the Habs next game, he's crazy.
Both NHL goalies have been sucking large and this guy is red hot.
Over to you, Coach Cory.
Oh yeah...... I almost forgot. Chris Campoli broke the scoreless game with around 2 minutes left in the third frame on a great set up from Alexei Kovalev after some hard work from Mike Fisher. The other Chris.... Kelly dumped in an empty netter to seal the deal.
