OTTAWA - Erik Karlsson should feel honoured.

A bizarre tradition of NHL fans is to boo great players on the opposing team, for no rhyme nor reason, and Winnipeggers gave it to the Senators defenceman almost every time he touched the puck Saturday.

Funny thing is, Karlsson says he wasn't so great in the 4-1 victory over the Jets -- despite contributing a goal and two assists.
