The Senators got a point out of the Kings at Arena on Thursday night but couldn’t snap the current losing skid.

Joonas Korpisalo stopped 31 of 35 shots but the final shot of the game came in overtime off Kevin Fiala to give the Kings the win.

“I thought we competed hard right from the start," explained Senators interim head coach. “They are a big, heavy team and I think we did a good job controlling the puck in the offensive zone.”

The Senators started fast with a great scoring chance in the first minute of the game when Claude Giroux made a pass to the net front that found Tim Stützle but couldn’t elevate it over Cam Talbot’s right pad.

“I think you just tell him to stay with it,” added Martin when probed about Stützle’s many scoring chances but lack of production. “He probably had three great opportunities tonight so you are only worried if he is not getting any opportunities.”

Additionally, the Senators injury woes continued with Thomas Chabot and Matthew Highmore joining Josh Norris, Travis Hamonic and Zack MacEwen in the press box following injuries last night in Anaheim. Early in the game Mark Kastelic looked like he may join them when he lost an edge crashing in to the Kings net. He exited briefly, but returned later in the first. Upon his return a Matt Roy collision sent him back to the locker room, but he returned again logging only 7:20 of ice time.

The play immediatly after the Kastelic collision saw Mathieu Joseph also get dinged-up when he was tangled with Andreas Englund, sending the Senators on the first power play of the game.

On the ensuing power play Dominik Kubalik tipped in a shot from Jake Sanderson for his 10th goal of the season.

“Obviously it’s been a while so it’s nice to get one it was a lucky one,” said Kubalik following his goal that opened the scoring for the Senators.

The game remained a one-goal lead until past the halfway mark of the second period. Stützle had yet another amazing chance when he took another pass from Giroux and fired the bouncing puck toward the open net only to watch Talbot dive across and keep the lead at a single goal.

The very next play Quinton Byfield took a long breakaway pass from Blake Lizotte and he made no mistake to tie the game. Not to be outdone, Sens captain Brady Tkachuk responded just 15 seconds later to re-establish the Senators lead off a sprawling goal.

In the third period Pierre-Luc Dubois scored at the halfway make to tie the game at 2 goals apiece. Less than two minutes later Jacob Moverare scored the first of his career to give the Kings the lead.

In the final five minutes Drake Batherson tied up the game when he scored his fifth goal in seven games.

“We were just able to turn over a puck there just inside their blueline,” explained Batherson. “Zuby just made a great play there and I wanted to get it off as soon as I can so credit to Zuby that was a great pass."

With the game tied at three goals a piece at the end of regulation the game went into overtime.

The Senators gained possession early and Jake Sanderson carried the puck the distance of the ice before finishing with a great scoring chance. Finally, Fiala had the puck bounce on his stick a couple times in front of the net before he was able to knock the puck behind Korpisalo for the win.

""It was a good game obviously and I think both teams played really strong, each goalie made some big saves and obviously things can go either way in overtime," concluded Batherson.

The Senators will face the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night on Sportsnet and TVA.
