Kyle Capobianco had his first NHL objective and Oliver Ekman-Larsson likewise scored in the very first period. The Senators made a late push, pulling within two objectives after Vladislav Namestnikov and Chris Tierney scored in the third duration."They beat in the first period, didn't provide us anything, we made some major mistakes that end up in the net, and then you're playing catch-up hockey the rest of the way, which is difficult," Ottawa coach D.J. Smith said. Tierney cut Arizona's lead to 4-2 with a power-play objective, one-timing a pass from Thomas Chabot in the slot."We understood they were going to come out hard early and we didn't match their complete level," stated Tierney, who has two objectives this season.
The Arizona Coyotes liked the way they were playing at the start of the season, even if pucks weren't entering into the web. They were playing strong defence, creating great chances, and figured the objectives would come.
