Hasek Allows Three as Wings Fall to Senators


In his second complete game of the preseason, Dominik Hasek allowed three goals as the Ottawa Senators defenated the Detroit Red Wings, 3-1.

The Senators opened the game’s scoring early in the first period. Marian Hossa took a centering pass from Radek Bonk in the low slot and put a quick shot past Hasek’s pad at 3:36 of the period.

Detroit responded with a similar goal just 1:04 later. Henrik Zetterberg carried the puck behind the Ottawa net and sent a quick pass to a streaking Ray Whitney, who put the puck past Ottawa netminder Ray Emery for his second preseason goal.

Hasek allowed the first of two weak goals 6:01 into the second period when he couldn’t get his pads closed in time to stop a Radek Bonk shot from the left circle.

Marian Hossa’s second of the night finished off the scoring. With 7:55 remaining in the game, he streaked down the left side of the ice and put a shot through the gap in Hasek’s pads, lifting the Senators to a 3-1 lead.

Hasek allowed the three goals on only 18 Ottawa shots. Emery stopped all but one of Detroit’s 29 shots.

The Red Wings will be back in action Thursday night in Boston. It will be their last game before the NHL’s annual Waiver Draft, which could decide the fate of Wings’ goalie Curtis Joseph.
