With six different stops over eight years, it has been a long and winding road to the NHL for Andre Benoit, but it appears that the 28 year old St-Albert native is finding his game at the NHL level.

Benoit played a season high 22 minutes on Thursday against the New York Rangers and blasted home his second goal of the season on a Sens power play, a goal which ultimately held up as the game winner. Incidentally, Benoit's first goal of the season -- and his NHL career -- held up as a game winner as well. You can't fault his sense of timing.

You know a goaltender has done something spectacular to get 20,000 people chanting their name. On Thursday night, Ben Bishop gave us an idea of just how you go about getting that done.

With Bishop tied up, down and out in his crease, Ryan McDonagh walked in from the top of the circle with nothing but net to aim at. Bishop, however, collected himself and pulled off one of the saves of the year, diving across the net to eliminate the opening with a great save and preserve the lead.

Take a look...

It was a tightly played game between the Sens and Rangers with not a ton separating the two teams, but ultimately tighter defensive play won in the end as the Sens escaped with a 3-0 victory.

While the Rangers had plenty of possession time at various points of the game, they ultimately couldn't break down an aggressive Sens defensive system to generate many meaningful scoring chances. The Sens also held up on the PK, killing all four Rangers penalties and generating a handful of shorthanded chances.

When the Sens had their occasional breakdown, Ben Bishop made the crucial stops. He put a jolt in the Scotiabank Place crowd with a diving stop on the short side and found a way to quash any Rangers offence. He was named the first star of the game and deservedly so.

Here's a Twitter rundown of what Coach MacLean had to say...

Mike Hoffman
made his arrival in Ottawa today and spoke after practice about his experiences this season, in addition to what he believes he brings to the table.

For those who were unaware, Hoffman skated on a line with Daniel Alfredsson and Kyle Turris today. If you were a young, offensively talented player looking to shine in your second stint, linemates don't get much better than that.

It has been a long time coming but Craig Anderson has finally begun making appearances at team practices this week and appears to slowly be getting closer to his return to game action this season.

Andy, who went down on February 21 against the New York Rangers with a sprained ankle, has been recuperating for a little over a month's time now. Obviously any need for him to risk a hasty return and play through excessive pain has been eliminated by the stellar performances of Ben Bishop and Robin Lehner in his absence but the return of the Sens' top goaltender will be a welcome one...
