The Ottawa Senators have dropped four straight games, but they might have also witnessed the start of a new era on Sunday.
The trio of rookies showed what they could do Sunday night when they combined for a goal against Florida Panthers netminder Scott Clemmensen:
Clemmensen was otherwise perfect Sunday night, stopping 40 shots to lead the Panthers to a 2-1 victory against Ottawa.
If anything, that makes the rookie line’s efforts all the more impressive because, as you can see below, he wasn’t exactly easy to beat Sunday night:
