The Ottawa Senators scored their first shootout goal of the season, and it was a beauty from Jason Spezza.
Before Jason Spezza's shootout attempt on Monday night against the Philadelphia Flyers, the Senators had not scored a shootout goal this season, going 0-for-their-first-10 attempts.
Spezza, who was responsible for four of the previous misses, finally ended that drought in the third round of their 5-4 win over the Flyers and it was well worth the wait. Spezza displayed some quick hands and completely faked Flyers goalie Steve Mason out of his pads leaving just enough room inside the post for Spezza to slide the puck in for the game-winner.
Sean Couturier missed on his attempt for Philadelphia that followed, resulting in a celebratory hop from Senators goalie Craig Anderson.
