Sens Scratch Out Win Vs. Panthers
On a night when goaltending went from important to critical, Elliott stepped into the fray and delivered the type of play this team will rely on for success in the post season.
That was when Elliott made his game saving stop, a stop that signaled to the entire bench that he was there to bail them out and do his part to secure the win. This kind of play is what builds confidence and provides the team with the mental strength to stick within the system.
Sure the Sens beat the lowly Panthers, but it will be the confidence this game developed that will give them a chance to beat the Caps.
From here outThe mental aspect of the game only becomes tougher, and the more this team can rally around each other and count on each other, the more likely the wins, or at least solid play, will continue.
Bring on the Caps.
