KANATA, Ont. -- It took an overtime period to end the Ottawa Senators' scrimmage on Saturday morning, but it was Team Kyte who came out on top against Team Marsh, 3-2.
Team Kyte led off the scoring, with Milan Michalek dishing off a feed to captain Daniel Alfredsson, who put one past Brian Stewart. Team Kyte would wrap up the first period with another goal, when Shane Prince capitalized on a giveaway from Louie Caporusso. Prince then found Maxime Gratchev, who squirted the puck past Stewart, for a 2-0 lead. Stewart prevented Team Kyte from going up 3-0 late in the period, when he made a highlight-reel glove save on Corey Cowick.
In the second period, Team Marsh was able to get on the board. As Mike McKenna scrambled down low in his net, Peter Regin was able to jostle the puck free and get it to Mark Borowiecki, who buried it below McKenna's pads.
A few minutes later, Nick Foligno impressed with a spin-o-rama backhand on McKenna, knotting the score at two.
With the scrimmage still tied after 50 minutes of play, an overtime frame was needed. It was only two minutes in when Alfredsson sent a beautiful pass to Milan Michalek, who backhanded the puck top-shelf on Robin Lehner.
"It was a little bit rocky in the first few minutes there," Alfredsson said. "But I thought it was a pretty good pace overall."
