Bruins vs. Senators: Guillaume Latendresse scores 55 seconds into his return

Latendresse had missed the last 18 games to injury.

The Ottawa Senators have been a team starved for good feelings this season, with injuries to Erik Karlsson, Craig Anderson and Jason Spezza decimating their lineup. Coach Paul MacLean has somehow kept the team afloat despite the setbacks, and now he might have some help from one of his veterans.

Guillaume Latendresse returned Monday night after an 18-game absence and immediately scored in the first 55 seconds off a breakaway to give Ottawa an early 1-0 lead. It was his first goal since Dec. 11, 2011, and the first of this season for Latendresse, who has missed significant time due to migraines and whiplash side effects. The Senators are surely glad to have him back, especially if he sparks the offense like this consistently.
