I remember thinking after that game, "they finally figured out how they need to play, now they just need to do it for a full game." Then we won the next 6 games. That Ottawa game was, in a lot of ways, the turning point for how the team played that year. (Thorntons comments the next game also were a factor.) The point is that when you're struggling, you can only turn it around by doing positive things on the ice, even if you still lose.
Great memory (that was right when the original "this is a bad hockey team" thread was going nuts, wasn't it?). A classic example of what I was referring to.
