During the regular season, the Ottawa Senators were a team that, for the most part, had a few go to guys when it came to putting pucks in the back of the net. Milan Michalek, Jason Spezza, and Daniel Alfredsson (who is currently out with a concussion) accounted for 96 of the team’s 249 regular season goals.
The Ottawa Senators have looked like a different team in the playoffs.
Finding ways to beat New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist has been a constant struggle, but when they do score, it has always been from a different source. That’s right: In four games, Ottawa has scored eight goals curtesy of eight different players.
Strangely enough, Jason Spezza isn’t one of the team’s scorers despite recording nine shots on goal.
For a team that doesn’t have a ton of top-end talent, especially with Alfredsson sidelined, the secondary scoring has been vital. It’s one of the main reasons their first round series is tied at 2-2 after their 3-2 victory on Wednesday.
