Congrats Ray

Last night was just a good night for the Sens. Not only did Sens backup goalie, Ray Emery, get his first shut out in the NHL against the Montreal Canadiens (coincidentally the Habs first shut out loss this season), but in doing so he set the all time record for the longest winning streak for a goalie just beginning his career. His lifetime NHL stats now moves to 9-0-0, one upping the record set by Bob Froese in the 1982-83 season.

In addition to that, Dany Heatley managed yet another assist, extending his start of season scoring streak to 22 games, just one shy of Gretzky's record.

To top it all off, Jason Spezza, with a goal and an assist, broke the 4 way tie on top of the NHL scoring leaders board to take the lead all for himself. That maintains the Senators stranglehold of the standings as they hold 3 of the top 5 spots.

All this while the Sens manage to keep their position on top of the NHL standings, while at the same time having played the fewest games in the league (a distinction they share with 3 other teams). In fact, the season is going so good this year that they have 4 games in hand on both the second place team in their conference, the Rangers, and their co-leaders in the overall standings, Detroit.

Now as long as I can keep Donna away from the Corel Centre, everything should be alright.
