Jan 24, 2013; Sunrise, FL, USA; Florida Panthers center Jerred Smithson (25) deflets a puck against Ottawa Senators center Jason Spezza (19) during the first period at the BB

FINAL! Senators 3, Panthers 1

The Ottawa Senators did it in Ottawa… and, now they have done it down here in South Florida (Sunrise).  On 37 shots on goal only 2 of them went in, but Jason Spezza got an Unassisted Goal on a late 3rd period Empty Net Goal due to Jose Theodore being pulled in favor of  a sixth man on the ice.  Unfortunately, it did not pan out in the Panthers favor.

Other goals for Ottawa… Chris Phillips was assisted by M. Methot and Z. Smith in the first period, Erik Karlsson was unassisted in the 2nd period.

The lone Florida goal was scored by Tomas Fleischman on assists from Brian Campbell and Tomas Kopecky.  Florida had 26 shots on goal.

Jose Theodore was in goal for Florida, and Craig Anderson was in goal on Ottawa.

Next up: Philadelphia Flyers come to Florida to face the Panthers Saturday night.
