Cowen the hero in Senators’ overtime win
http://www.senatorsextra.com/main/cowen-the-hero-in-senators-overtime-win In this article they talk about how the rookie defencemen Jared Cowen saved the day for the Ottawa Senators in overtime yesterday against the Buffalo Sabers. He scored 45 seconds into overtime, off a pass from Erik Karlsson, to help the Senators break a three-game losing streak and get out of Buffalo with a 3-2 win.
This came after the Senators blew a 1-0 first-period lead and had to fight back from a 2-1 deficit.
However, the victory was muted with the loss of Milan Michalek, who opened the scoring with his league-leading 19th of the year and then was injured in a huge collision with Karlsson about 4:30 into the second period. The two collided just inside the Buffalo blue line.
Michalek suffered an upper body injury and didn’t return to the game. It wasn’t immediately known how serious the injury was or whether he’d be able to play Wednesday against the Boston Bruins. Coach Paul MacLean said he’d be re-evaluated in Ottawa.
Karlsson said the collision was simply bad luck. This is a huge lose for the Ottawa Senators.
