Ottawa visited Pittsburgh on April 13, 2014 for the final game of the season. It was a difficult and disappointing season for the Senators and the team had already been eliminated from playoff contention before the start of the game. With nothing left to play for, Ottawa pushed the game to overtime, thanks to goals by Kyle Turris and Mark Stone. With the game tied a two, a shootout was necessary.
Spezza's slick move gave the Senators the win and finished the season on a positive note. However, there's another reason this goal stands out: It was Spezza's final effort as a Sen. Rumours were swirling at the time that he'd be moved in the offseason and it felt like a moment to remember at the time. When Spezza was moved in the summer, the suspicions from the April shootout were confirmed.
