No Anderson, no problem: Senators win fourth in a row

Feb 23, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

Despite losing Erik Karlsson, Jason Spezza, Milan Michalek and now Craig Anderson, the Ottawa Senators keep finding ways to win games. They did it dramatic fashion on Saturday, as Colin Greening scored the game-winner against the Toronto Maple Leafs with less than 30 seconds remaining:

Greening, 26, had a great night in that 3-2 win, assisting on the Senators’ other two goals.

The Sens did a nice job protecting temporary No. 1 goalie Ben Bishop, limiting the Maple Leafs to 28 shots.

It was a tight performance on both sides, with only three penalties called in the contest.

Ottawa is now on a four-game winning streak, with a 4-1-0 record since Karlsson went down. They’re now 11-6-2 in 19 games for 24 points, placing them fifth overall in the East as of this writing.

    Point shot right into his chest, all Scrivens had to do was not drop it and the Leafs get at least a point. Brutal.

    Big win for the Sens. Silfverberg and Zibanejad are playing Well and Sens arebplaying tough smart hockey. Still have the Habs to play before Michalek and Anderson are back. Don’t count the Sens out!

    Plus leaf fans talked a lot of smack before this game. Sens destroy leafs with a healthy lineup. And yes leaf fans I know you are missing lupol and reimer. Those guys are obviously just as skilled as Spezza/karlsson/michalek and anderson.

    I have to note that the Sens have earned those wins by the skin of their teeth compared to their pre-injury dominance. Obviously no-one expects them to be dominant minus their best centre, defenseman and goalie, though.
