The ballyhooed reunion game between the Senators and Daniel Alfredsson started as a pretty one-sided affair.
Ottawa came out guns blazing at Joe Louis on Wednesday night, chasing Jimmy Howard from the Detroit goal by scoring three goals on its first eight shots. Defenseman Eric Gryba opened things at 5:46 with his first of the year, followed by a Jason Spezza power play tally five minutes later.
(The move seemed to briefly spark the Wings, as Todd Bertuzzi scored his third of the year at the 16:16 mark.)
As for Alfredsson, his first period was a quiet one. Detroit head coach Mike Babcock gave him the start but, at the time of writing, Alfie had played just 4:01 in the frame… though he did dish out a pair of hits.
