Vladislav Namestnikov led the way in a surprising Senators win over Tampa Bay, 4-2. Namestnikov had two goals and added an assist. He also posted a +3 rating and put up three shots, one hit and two blocks in 21:47 (!) of ice-time.
Well now, that was a bit unexpected. It only took the newly acquired Namestnikov two games to lead his team in ice-time and provide a major scoring punch. Quite a contrast from his usage in New York. Namestnikov now has four points (two goals, two assists) in two games with the Sens. Temper your expectations (one of the goals was an empty netter), but he has our attention for now.
