Sens’ Chris Neil Drills Wild’s Clayton Stoner (Video)
After losing their first two games of the season, the Ottawa Senators found themselves trailing the Minnesota Wild by a score of 2-0 during the second period of last night’s game. They were looking for some sort of spark to turn their season around, and they finally found it, in the form of a bone-crushing hit from forward Chris Neil on the Wild’s Clayton Stoner.
Neil finished the game with one goal, one assist and eight hits, as the Sens rallied to beat the Wild 4-3 in a shootout. As for Stoner, apparently he was going to get out of the way of Neil’s check, but then he got high.
