Senators collapse late in loss to Stars

http://www.senatorsextra.com/main/senators-collapse-late-in-loss-to-stars In this article they talked about how the Ottawa Senators just missed continuing their winning streak when they gave up two goals in the final 5:34 to lose 3-2 to the Dallas Stars on Thursday night. The Senators had just taken a 2-1 lead on Milan Michalek’s 15th goal of the year when Radek Dvorak and Eric Nystrom scored to give Dallas a come-from-behind win. Erik Condra also scored for the Senators, while Steve Ott got Dallas’ first goal.
Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson made 29 saves and his Dallas counterpart Andrew Raycroft stopped 33 shots. The Senators were unlucky to leave the first period tied 1-1. They could have been ahead by one or maybe two goals. They controlled the period, outshot the Stars 13-9, and had a big territorial edge.
The Stars didn’t even get their first shot (from Toby Petersen) until the game was more than five minutes old and Condra was in the penalty box for hooking. The Ottawa Senators played well but they had a unfortunate loss.
