At 3:17 of the second period in the Senators/Canadiens game, video review was inconclusive in determining if Daniel Alfredsson's stick was above the crossbar. Therefore the referee's call on the ice stands. No goal Ottawa.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
