The Sens redeemed themselves tonight. It was an away game in Carolina, and although they came close to disaster several times, they pulled it off. The final goal, in the last 0.9 seconds of the game, was an empty netter by Peter Schaefer. Victory was all the more poignant because of Chris Neil’s absence. He learned that his mother had been killed in a car accident this morning, and flew home from Carolina to be with family.
