Hemsky collects three assists in Sens’ win against Jets

Mar 8, 2014, 6:16 PM EDT

Update: The original box score credited Hemsky with four assists, but it turns out he had three.

It’s too early to say that Ales Hemsky is the linemate the Ottawa Senators have been searching for to help Jason Spezza out, but Saturday’s 5-3 win makes a compelling argument.

Hemsky collected three assists in just 14:04 of ice time while Spezza generated three assists of his own. Here’s video of all four of the goals that featured Hemsky helpers:

Hemsky was named the first star of the contest, yet Craig Anderson might have been the true standout.

Winnipeg fired 22 shots to Ottawa’s seven on net in the third period, yet only a Dustin Byfuglien slapper beat Anderson in that final frame.

Some of those Hemsky helpers and the sheer volume of saves aren’t exactly how the Senators would have drawn things up, yet Ottawa could be dangerous if both Hemsky, 30, and Anderson, 32 perform this well during the stretch run. Hemsky now has three points in his two games as a member of the Senators.

    Funny – “Hemsky now has five points in his first three games as a member of the Senators”

    Capt Obvious says, “he’s only been a member of the team for 2 games, and the other 2 points were against the Sens when he was a member of the Oilers”.

    Hemsky is a talent and was overdue for a change of scenery.

    Now that he has dazzled, it’s time to vanish either by getting hurt or just turning invisible.
