Silver Nuggets: Only former Senators score game-winning goals

NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 12: Jason Spezza #19 of the Ottawa Senators skates with the puck in the first period against Ryan McDonagh #27 of the New York Rangers in Game One of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Madison Square Garden on April 12, 2012 in New York City.

Last February, the Ottawa Senators traded Chris Kelly for a second-round draft pick. Last night, he scored the the game-winning goal for the Boston Bruins. In overtime.

In 2006, the Sens traded Martin Havlat to the Chicago Blackhawks for a package of players. Last night, he scored the game-winning goal for the San Jose Sharks. In double-overtime.

In 2009, the Sens traded Antoine Vermette for Pascal Leclaire and a second-rounder (Robin Lehner). Last night, he scored the game-winning goal for the Phoenix Coyotes.

It's tough to moan too much about these trades at this point in history, but my goodness... couldn't they have put some of that clutch offence on the board during those past Senators playoff disappointments?

Tomorrow night, some more Ottawa Senators draft picks will hopefully score game-winning goals. And those should be against the New York Rangers.
