Elliott blew yesterday but it hasn't been bad recently.
If the Sens top guys capitalize on their chances early in a game, or even create chances at all, it will force the other team to play catch-up and that plays in to the Senators hands. Look at the wins during their hot streak... 2-0, 4-2, 5-1, 4-1, 3-2, 2-1, 3-0, 4-1, 3-2, 4-2, 3-1. The Sens did a great job of jumping on teams early and holding to win. They are a much better team when they score first and these so-called top guys need to be the ones to do it. The Sens scored first in all of those games except one, and the players to score the first goal? Campoli, Smith, Kovalev, Smith, Regin, Alfie, Kovalev, Kovalev, Michalek. All those guys have disappeared (one to the minors!) in the recent stretch.
3, 1 goal games. some of them had empty netters. take that into effect and 1/2 those games could of went either way.
