“Our defense was really slow moving pucks in the first period,” said Kings head coach Darryl Sutter.” In the second we passed the puck to them, it probably should have been 2-1 them after that and then in the third we just couldn’t get the goal.”
Andrew Hammond, Ottawa’s rookie goaltender, started in his fourth NHL game and picked up his second straight and second career shutout, stopping all 35 of the Kings shots.
The Kings generated plenty of chances, but they couldn’t get a puck past Hammond.
“Jeff Carter’s line was really good,” said Sutter, “but after that it was pretty much zero output.”
Hammond, was called-up by the Senators because of injuries suffered by Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner; he hasn’t allowed a goal in his last 171:44 in net for the Senators.
During the second period the Kings scored a goal but the referee waived it off because he lost sight of the puck.Read more... Join the Conversation...
