Senators, Anderson Shut Out Oilers
Craig Anderson turned aside all 37 Oiler shots en route to a 2-0 shutout for the Senators on Sunday night. The Oilers looked unable to gain any momentum for large parts of the first half of this one, and were unable to solve Anderson along the way. Ottawa's Mike Hoffman scored midway through the second period, and that's all that Ottawa would need. An empty net goal was tallied by Bobby Ryan in the third period, and Edmonton's five game winning streak comes to a close.
Edmonton is in Toronto today to take on the Leafs. Can the Oilers put Sunday's game in the rearview mirror and get back to the win column?
Let's go to the tape.
The Oilers are saying
"We're a confident team...We're pissed off that we let this one get away, but we're going to have to have some good teams to face here in this road trip coming up so we've been good on the road as of late to start the season here so we can only continue to play that way."Source
That's Oilers forward Jordan Eberle after Edmonton's 2-0 loss to Ottawa on Sunday.
Zero goals against a team that allows a fair bit may be some concern. Oilers were only able to get one goal before the empty netter against Vancouver. Fire up the McDavid line.
The opponents are saying
"We created a lot of opportunities, but their goalie stood on his head and made a lot of good saves. But I think we have to continue to do what we're doing and clean up some things defensively. Offensively we're getting our chances, but (we've) just got to capitalize on them now." Source
