Senators forward Colin Greening had a Hollywood moment in his hometown of St. John's, N.L., on Monday night as he entered the fourth round of the shootout to a raucous ovation before receiving an even bigger one after scoring with a high backhander. Greening talked about the special experience for both himself and his family in the crowd after the game.

"Regardless of the score, this was a really special time for me to be home and spend time with my family. I had my mom and dad here, a lot of aunts and uncles. To play a good game — I think most people would agree that was a pretty entertaining game to watch," said Greening. "With a goal in the shootout, I'm glad we could give them a good show."

"Newfoundlanders like to stick together. It was pretty nerve-wracking when I hopped over the boards. I think I was more excited than nervous, I think I just blacked out and went in. When I saw the puck go in I was elated."

Where does that reaction rank in terms of crowds he's heard?

"It's unique, this is home for me and it's special to be able to do in front of my mom and dad and a lot of people who don't normally get to see me play."

Senators forward Clarke MacArthur recorded a goal in his first pre-season game on Monday night in St. John's, N.L., for the Sens in a 3-2 shootout loss to the New York Islanders. Here's what he had to say about the experience as a whole after the team spent three days in town.

"It was fun. Great fans and I thought we had a pretty good product out there considering it was the first game," said MacArthur. "It's always fun when you get a packed house and they were obviously excited to see Greener (Colin Greening) out there. For him to get a goal like that at the end was pretty cool."

The Senators return to pre-season action on Wednesday night in a pair of split-squad games against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Senators forward Shane Prince was a dynamic player for the Senators on Monday afternoon, creating multiple scoring chances and drawing an assist on Cole Schneider's second period goal. He talks about a late game chance he created, which could have given the Senators a lead if not for a highlight reel save off a shot from Buddy Robinson.

"It was a good transition play. I ended up getting the puck up the wing and one of the D actually fell so it ended up being a 2-on-1," said Prince. "Buddy went hard to the net and I was able to feed it behind the D and he got it up. The goalie made an unbelievable glove save so credit to him."

Senators forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau recorded a primary assist on the team's second of two goals in a 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders in addition to playing big time penalty kill minutes. His line with Shane Prince and Cole Schneider was a consistent threat for the Sens over the course of the game.

"Yeah (he and Shane Prince developed chemistry) and you can't forget Cole Schneider on the wing too. I thought we did a pretty good job tonight," said Pageau. "At the start we struggled but I think at the end we had pretty good chemistry. We were moving the puck and working hard and when you're doing that good things happen."

The Sens and Islanders renew acquaintances at 7:30 p.m. in Newfoundland.
