Clint Windsor made 39 saves for the win as Jordan DeKort took the loss after giving up four goals on 36 shots in 54 minutes of action. DeKort replaced starter Jaroslav Pavelka early in the first period after Pavelka let in three goals on five shots.
Ottawa went 1 for 3 on the power play while Windsor scored once on seven chances with the man advantage.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
