FIVE THINGS WE LEARNED
Ken Warren’s takeaways from last night’s game vs. Tampa
1 THE KIDS’ CHEMISTRY SET The trio of rookies Colin White and Brady Tkachuk, along with veteran Mark Stone, was a presence. They combined for three goals and two assists.
2 BOBBY RYAN HAS HIS GROOVE BACK Bobby Ryan has his groove back: Ryan used his size and skill to great effect, delivering a three-point night.
3 VASILEVSKIY CAN BE RATTLED The star Lightning goaltender came into the game with a goals against average of 1.98, but he yielded four third period goals to the Senators.
4 THE SENS CAN DEFEND SOMETIMES Craig Anderson must have felt lonely in the third period. He faced a mere five shots in the third period.
5 JOSEPH LIKES THE SENATORS Lightning rookie Mathieu Joseph has scored his first four NHL goals in the past week. Three of them came against Ottawa.
Sens’ Matt Duchene scores a goal on Andrei Vasilevskiy of the Lightning last night in Tampa.
