OTTAWA -- Theres nothing like beating the defending Stanley Cup champions to gain a little confidence. Aaron Donald Youth Jersey . Craig Anderson stopped 46 shots in his first game back since being injured Mar. 10 as the Ottawa Senators beat the visiting Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 on Friday. "We found a way to win and thats all that really matters," said Anderson. "It felt good to come back from my whatever injury. Got back in there, get back in the saddle and it was good to see a lot of shots so you didnt have time to think and you just kind of read and react so it was really good." Clarke MacArthur had a goal and two assists to lead the charge while Erik Condra, Cody Ceci, Milan Michalek and Kyle Turris each scored for the Senators (30-29-14) Patrick Sharp, Marian Hossa and Brent Seabrook scored for Chicago (42-18-15). Antti Raanta faced 29 shots. Chicago has lost three of its last four outings and captain Jonathan Toews says there are too many mistakes happening when his team has possession of the puck. "Id say there was some good moments where we did have control of the puck where we were getting point shots and second efforts and some of the things were looking for when were playing good hockey," said Toews. "Other than that it was sloppy turnovers, sloppy mistakes that we really need to get out of our system. We need to get those plays out of our game. Its as simple as that. We need to play some character hockey. Frustrating way to lose." Toews wasnt alone in thinking the Blackhawks failed to show their best effort. "I didnt like our game," said Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville. "We had a good start and obviously giving up a shorthanded (goal) right off the bat they got some momentum off it and played well." Ottawa scored twice in the third and killed off a 34 second two-man advantage to hold off the Blackhawks before a crowd of 18,922 at the Canadian Tire Centre. Turris made it 4-2 with a power-play goal at the six-minute mark of the third and MacArthur scored his 23rd of the season midway through the period to make it 5-2. "I thought we competed better," said MacArthur. "We had a little lapse in the second, but youre playing Chicago and theyre going to make a push, but we were able to make plays in the third and not clam up." Frustration started to set in for Chicago midway through the third when Andrew Shaw speared Zack Smith. Shaw was assessed a major and game misconduct for his actions. After the game Smith admitted he was less than impressed by the play. "A spear is always looked upon as pretty bad for someone to do," said Smith. "Its kind of a cheap shot, especially where he was aiming, but you saw the replay." The Blackhawks made it 5-3 with a shorthanded goal at the 17-minute mark as Seabrooks shot from the point just trickled across the goal-line. Ottawa jumped out to a 3-0 lead, but by the end of the second it was a one-goal game. The Senators were outshot 23-5 in the middle period. Chicago got on the board midway through the second with a power-play goal as Sharp took a great pass from Jonathan Toews and tipped it past Anderson. Hossa made it 3-2 when he scored with 41 seconds remaining in the second period. Hossa intercepted a pass at the Ottawa blue-line, cut through two defencemen and squeezed the puck past Anderson. Ottawa had made it 3-0 just 23 seconds into the second as Michalek tipped in a shot off a pass from Spezza. "I thought we had a little more confidence," added MacArthur. "I thought overall we had a little lapse and those are going to happen, but we answered back in the third which is big and I thought our (defencemen) moved the puck a lot better, especially in the third when we were under pressure." The Senators held a 2-0 lead after the first 20 minutes. Condra made it 1-0, scoring shorthanded midway through the first. And Ceci made it 2-0 in the final minute of the period as he scored from just inside the blue line.

While organizers havent decided if itll be red or green clay, they feel their choice of surface will give the Americans an advantage over Britain, which is expected to be led by defending Wimbledon champion Andy Murray.The Toronto Maple Leafs are stepping to a new beat. After collapses of various degrees over the past three seasons, the Leafs have opted for a newer approach - a more analytical approach - to try to avoid dropping out of playoff contention during the season. "You need a team thats capable of getting through some of those things and theres a learning process," general manager Dave Nonis said in conversation with TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie this weekend. "You have to look at some personnel issues and you have to look at how you do things. We have to learn from those mistakes. There are things that we have to correct, in the coaching staff, from a management standpoint and the players." And the Leafs certainly took a look at the entire organization this summer, with an overhaul beginning right at the top with the hiring of Hall of Famer Brendan Shanahan as team president. Shanahan triggered the trickle-down effect with the removal of assistant GMs Dave Poulin and Claude Loiselle along with assistant coaches Dave Farrish, Greg Cronin and Scott Gordon. The vacant coaching positions were filled by former Toronto Marlies head coach Steve Spott and former Florida Panthers head coach Peter Horachek. The new direction – and what could turn out to be the biggest change for the organizations present and future - is Shanahans hiring of analytics expert Kyle Dubas, the 28-year-old former GM of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds as Noniss assistant. As advanced statistics have become more prevalent in the NHL over the last few years, the Leafs hope the infusion of a bright analytic mind will inject new life into a club that ranked worst in the NHL in Corsi (Shots attempted vs. Shots against) and has developed the reputation of being a bad puck-possession team. "Its a different way of looking at things," Nonis said of placing more importance on analytics. "Theres a lot of information that should disseminate throughout the coaching staff and help them make the decisions on lineups, on combinations, on how you play the opposition, so I think the coaches are going to benefit from it. "From a management standpoint I think were going to benefit from it long term, if we can do some of the things were hoping to do. One of the things that we talked about … is how do we take some of this innformation and project into the future how were going to get better and things we can do to get better. Bobby Evans Jersey. And thats not going to be a two-month or three-month project. I think its going to be something that is going to take years for us to really nail down, but were attacking it pretty hard and Kyle and his staff is working hard on it right now." In order for the shift in philosophy to work, the entire organization needs to buy in, which Nonis says has never and should never be a problem. "The analytics budget was put into our budget by me," Nonis said. "If I had an aversion to it I wouldnt have put it in and I put it in several years ago. "The reason we havent spent the majority of it is that until now we really havent had a person come to us that has shown us some direction that made sense. Weve had a lot of good coloured graphs and things that look pretty but it really wasnt helpful and I think when we had those discussions with Kyle, it looks like this is the first person that had been able to talk to us, and I put Brendan into the same category, were not deep into it and we need someone to help us with it and to explain how it is going to move us forward and he (Dubas) was able to do that." Nonis added that even head coach Randy Carlyle has been all ears to the new direction. "No question. Randy has always been open to it," he explained. "We used it last year - we presented him with information and hes never said Get that out of here, which I think some coaches have." Now its up to the players to absorb the new wave of information on the way. It will take patience, determination and effort to perfect a new system based around advanced statistics. And it will also take character, which has become a hot topic around the team since outgoing MLSE president Tim Leiweke made comments about it in a recent address at Ryerson University in Toronto. And while Leiweke backed away from the specifics of that statement, saying it was a general response and not directed at any one player, Nonis didnt seem to agree with his future former boss. "Were comfortable with the character of the group -with the group coming back and the players that we added," he said. "If we had questions about their character they wouldve been gone in the summer." ' ' '
