The 5 Hole: Sens Control Isles

The Islanders (24-18-10) head up to Ottawa to take on the Senators (28-18-6) in an afternoon game on Saturday. Anderson’s return to the Sens since leaving in early December to be with his wife (cancer). 4:10 into the game, Mark Stone gets his 20th of the year by banking the puck off Greiss from behind the net. Isles kicked off the 2nd period with 4 shots within the first 90 seconds. But nonetheless it’s Turris who feeds a streaking Zack Smith who splits the Isles defense and gets it passed Greiss to put the Islanders down 2-0. After a sloppy Isles powerplay, Pyatt finds Pageau with a cross-crease pass on the rush to give Ottawa a 3-0 lead. An uneventful 3rd period winds down with Tavares taking a slashing penalty and the Islanders dropping this one to the Sens 3-0. An emotional 33 save shutout for Anderson in first game back.
