Prince: We\'re Here To Win It All

(Centre Shane Prince of the Ottawa 67’s was a second-round choice by the Senators in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. The native of Spencerport, N.Y., is attending his first rookie camp and tournament with the team and will share some of his experiences in a series of blog posts for ottawasenators.com).

Today's game against the Blackhawks was definitely different than our first one. The amount of chances I had today was pretty crazy and I wasn't very fortunate. Every player goes through those streaks and you can't seem to catch a bounce. But at least I'm there, I'm getting a lot of offensive opportunities and creating plays. That's all I could ask for myself.

As a team, we had a lot of goals. Our power play was definitely clicking today. It was just like yesterday in that we had a lot of offensive chances, but the difference today is that we put a lot more of them in the back of the net.

Now that we've won our first two games, we want to win the tournament. Even before yesterday's game, we were coming in here to win. The more you win, the better the evaluation you get for yourself. It's just better to be around a winning atmosphere. It's great that we won the first two and we're going to work to win that third one.

Yesterday, after the game, we had a lot of down time and me and (Jean-Gabriel) Pageau and (Darren) Kramer and (Stefan) Noesen all played cards. It's relaxing and a lot of fun as well. It's definitely needed. You can't be focused the whole time. You've got to be able to sit back and relax and enjoy yourself. You put so much energy into the games, so you've got to be able to relax before the next one.

I've always liked playing cards. I remember doing it when I was eight or nine years old with my minor hockey teams. I've done that since I was young and it's still a lot of fun. I really enjoy it.
