Calling a Bottom?

As I write the first period with the Canadians is over and we are down 4-0: according to some, the worst period ever for the Senators.
Here's the rub: the Sens are not playing bad, in fact they are looking better than they have for awhile. Even McGrattan is moving well out there. The Heatley line is looking much better. Now if they can only avoid getting run over by their own defenceman.
This is just one of those games where the Hockey Gods look down and decide to put the screws to the Senators. Fortunately the Hockey Gods have short attention spans. If the Sens just keep thier heads together, things should start turning around.
This game is not over. Indeed this period may mark a low point in the Senators season.
