We have lift off.

OTT 3, CAR 2. Brian Elliott in for Leclaire due to an early 1st period collision with Kostopoulos. First win of the season, opening goal scored by Fisher, followed in the second by Michalek's netter. The Canes came back in the 3rd, tying it up in less than two minutes. Game-winner scored by Mike Fisher on the man advantage.

Defensive pairings were shuffled tonight and from my pictorial creations (I resorted to listening in on Team1200, alright?), they seemed to be an improvement from Monday night. Daniel Alfredsson looking good, as well.
