The Sens used a big second half of the first period to propel themselves to a 5-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday afternoon with goals from four different players.

Daniel Alfredsson was the primary catalyst for the Sens and was a headache for the Lightning all game long. He was easily Ottawa's most creative player on the ice and was rewarded with two goals for his effort. Alfie was your first star for his work and Marc Methot took home the second star of the game.

Methot returned to the lineup after missing Thursday's game vs. Boston. He and Eric Gryba (who scored his first career NHL goal today) were a stabilizing force on the back. Both players were plus-3 at the final horn.

Coach MacLean noted that the hot start was great for the team but that they had to be better about keeping the intensity level up as a game drags on with a big lead. Tampa Bay kept coming consistently but the Sens did enough to weather the storm.

Here is what Coach had to say after the game...
