Ceci fell to the ice in front of Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson after he was hit on the side of the head by Weber's drive from inside the blue line at 10:21 of the first period.

The 20-year-old rookie was bleeding from the right side of his head as he was helped off the ice to the dressing room.

Weber put a slap shot off Anderson's mask at 7:15 of the first that knocked the Senators goalie down. Ottawa medical personnel tended to Anderson on the ice, but the goalie remained in the game.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
