The Senators start their four game West coast trip on the good side.
In Vancouver to play against the Canucks during the 2014 Heritage Classic, Paul Maclean’s troops stopped a bad two game losing streak by winning 4-2 Sunday afternoon.
Cody Ceci made the difference in the game.
The young defenseman scored his second goal of the season ( and career) during the second period which in the end was the game winner.

Last December 16th, he had scored in overtime to allow his team to beat the St-Louis Blues 3-2
It was the home team that had a great start in the first ten minutes of the game.
Ottawa seemed to be heading for another long and brutal day at work.
Jason Garrison was first on the scoreboard on a power play goal and Zack Kassian doubled their lead a few minutes later.

These last got things going to come back in the game and go get those two big points on the line.
Clarke MacArthur scored on a power play goal and Erik Karlsson continued his domination for the defenseman, which now tied the game up at the end of the second period..
Colin Greening completed the score with an empty netter.
Craig Anderson was back in front of his net.
He had missed his team’s last game as he was in Florida to assist his wife in the birth of their second child.
The American goalie stopped 29 of 31 shots he faced and also earned his 20th win of the season.
