Sens Drop 4th-Straight In 3-2 Shootout Loss to Isles

devin rodgerCorrespondent INovember 29, 2007 Senators lost 3-2 in a shootout against the Islanders last night.

Josef Vasicek scored late in the first period to give the Isles a 1-0 lead going into the second.

The second saw nothing but the Isles playing the trap.

The third saw Andrej Meszaros score two to bring the Sens back into the game while former Senator Mike Sillinger scored to bring the game to a 2-2 tie heading into the overtime period.

In the overtime period Rick Dipeitro slid to take the puck from Mike Fisher and just got back in time to make an unbelievable save.

The shootout would be needed. For Ottawa, Alfredsson, Spezza, Heatley, Robitaille, Vermette, and McAmmond shot, while the Isles had Satan, Vasicek, Guerin, Comrie, Hunter, and Sillinger.

Alfredsson opened the scoring with a goal while the rest missed for Ottawa. Vasicek scored along with Sillinger to wrap up yet another loss for the Sens.

The Sens will try and snap a now 4 -ame losing streak with a win at home against the Preds.

Patrik Eaves will still be out for this game with a separated shoulder, while Foligno will be in the line-up for the injured Eaves.

The Preds who are also coming off of a loss, by the Minnesota Wild, will also be looking to get a win.

Martin Erat is leading the Preds with 21 points while the Sens are being lead by Daniel Alfredsson with 30 points.

On paper the Sens should blow away most NHL teams, but that's not how it works.  Last game you could see the Preds playing that stupid trap on the Sens. That seems to be the only thing working for the other teams anymore. It keeps the best players from showing off their great skills. We should see a rough and good game at its best.

I have not heard yet of who is getting the start but Paddock might go back to Emery who played a good game against the Isles last night.
