Memorable Monday: Conacher\'s First

It’s another Monday (weird how these seem to happen once a week) which means we have another chance to reflect on some of the top moments of the 2013-14 season here at Inside the Senate.

Flashback to early April. With the Sens facing a backlog of goaltenders last season, the team opted to make a move at the trade deadline, sending big Ben Bishop to Tampa Bay, thus paving the way for the Craig Anderson/Robin Lehner tandem, which wrapped up the season in goal. Coming back to Ottawa was Cory Conacher who walked on to the roster as the team’s leading scorer after a prolific start to his rookie season.

In just his second game as a Senator, Conacher potted his first goal as a member of the team, a beautiful tic-tac-toe play in conjunction with fellow rookies Mika Zibanejad and Jakob Silfverberg. The Sens couldn’t edge out the Panthers that night, losing 2-1 to a red hot Scott Clemmensen in goal, but Conacher and his fellow freshmen gave us all a goal for the highlight reels.

Take a look…

Conacher recorded five points in 12 regular season games to finish his season with 29 points in 47 games, tied for the highest total on the Sens with Kyle Turris. He added another three goals in eight playoff games, including a big game tying goal in game four of Ottawa’s series with Montreal. At season’s end, number 89 finished sixth in the NHL’s Calder Trophy voting, highest of any Sens rookie.
