Last year it was safe to say that it sucked to see a really good game of hockey decided by a skills competition like the shootout.
This year after a really good game of hockey in regulation time, a frantic display of cl(H)utch goaltending late and a semi-chaotic 3 on 3 overtime that would make a cup of coffee nervous, seeing a game decided by a shootout seems almost criminal.
Alas, that is what we have to deal with tonight as the Ottawa Senators survived a rally in the 3rd and managed to be a bit better with repeated breakaways to pick up the 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets.
Ah well, at least they got a point right?

It's not hard to find a lot of disdain on the Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tobias Enstrom.
Look no further than social media on game nights.Whether over Facebook or Twitter, one will find more than just contempt with many placing blame on loses solely on the defender. In reader's poll for the Winnipeg Sun 68 per cent of those that responded wished for Enstrom to be cut from the Jets.
Why the scorn? Is Enstrom really deserving of it?

Last night the Jets rebounded nicely from the debacle in Montreal to pick up a win in Toronto against a pesky Maple Leafs squad. Tonight they find themselves in the nation's capital trying to pick up their third win in the fourth game of this current road trip and their fourth win in the last five games played.
The Sens come into this contest also playing some pretty good hockey as of late having won three of their last four which includes a 2-1 overtime win against Les Habs on Tuesday night.

The young Alexander Burmistrov would probably joke that It was all according to plan. The Jets were getting the scoring chances but not the finishes in the third and needed a goal quick. Burmistrov was struggling after two bad penalties, but a game winning goal off a nifty play out of the penalty box sent the young forward from goat to GOAT (okay that's a stretch).
