Full credit the Senators for playing hard on the second half of a back-to-back, as to be expected for this rebuilding Ottawa squad under D.J. Smith. Ottawa put forth their best trapping efforts, leading to a choppy start to this game that would set the tone for the night as a whole.
Your game in ten:
1. One of Toronto’s best chances came very early in the game as William Nylander danced in all alone on Craig Anderson, but was unable to slide it in five-hole.
Nylander is flying in the early going.
