Coach MacLean post-game - 3.25.2013



It certainly wasn't the prettiest win of the season but they count all the same as the Ottawa Senators escaped with a 3-2 shootout win on Monday night.

After a dominating start to the game for the Sens, the Devils captured momentum in the first period and controlled the flow of play for the majority of the game from there. The Sens found a way to keep things together at the back end and, thanks to some fortunate bounces matching solid play in goal from Ben Bishop, got the game to the skills competition where they earned the win.

Coach MacLean borrowed defensive terminology more commonly used in football in saying that the Sens "bent and didn't break" tonight, though you'd be hard-pressed to find a more apt description of how the game played out.
