OTTAWA - Jean-Gabriel Pageau had a black eye Friday, a scar left over from the Battle of Ontario less than 24 hours earlier. Had he not followed his mother's advice, it could have been worse.
"It's pretty good. My mother gave me a cool trick. (She told him) to put a tea bag on it so the swelling would go down," said Pageau of the eye which was only partially swollen. "I don't know if it worked, but I did it."
Hey, it couldn't have hurt. Everything else is working for the 20-year-old Pageau as Senators training camp enters Day 10 Saturday with a scrimmage at the Canadian Tire Centre.
