2007 NHL Playoffs Recap and Video Highlights - May 31st

Got it right last night, although I didn't foresee the weak offensive effort that the Senators turned in. Perk up Ottawa fans, Saturday night at the Corel Centre will be a different story.

Last Nights Game:

Ottawa Senators 0 (0) at Anaheim Ducks 1 (2) : Samuel Pahlsson scored the game winner at 14:16 of the third period after a neutral zone turnover by Dany Heatley. Pahlsson sent a quick wrist shot through the legs of a seemingly lost Joe Corvo to ring off the post and in behind Ray Emery. For the most part the Senators played a better game last night but couldn't seem to generate much in the way of offense. They were outshot by the Ducks 31-16 and outside of their top line didn't couldn't generate much in the way of chances. They were stimmied on another 5-3 power play opportunity, this time in the second period. J.S. Giguere was huge in posting his second career shutout in the Stanley Cup finals, especially during the 5-3 man advantage and he gave his team what they needed in order to go up 2-0 in the series heading to Ottawa. Expect Ottawa to change things up a little for game 3 at home Saturday night.
