Mississauga Senators Form
The Senators have suffered a convincing defeat in their last G game. They tried to play a more offensive game in the first period of the game. Robson and Cohen looked like they can cause problems for the opposing defender. However, they were not able to materialize anything from that good play.
In the 2nd period of the game, the Sens conceded an early goal. That changed their plans and they had to focus more on the offensive side of the game. However, that did not bring significant result as they went on the break with a result of 1-0.
In the final period of the game, the Sens conceded another goal. But that goal had a galvanizing effect on the team. The team took the initiative and managed to score in the 14th minute of the 3rd period.
Also, it is important to emphasize that Jordan Harrison made some impressive runs on the left-wing. He was the best player in the Senator’s camp during the final period of the game. The Mississauga side pushed hard to equalize but was not able to convert their chances. They lost the game 2-1, but they fought really hard.
This was a game between two teams that desperately needed a win. Both sides had good chances, but it was the Flyers that managed to capitalize on the opponents’ errors and won the game.
