MONTREAL - The only solace for the Ottawa Senators was the split.

The Senators learned the hard way in Game 2 of the 417 Series that if they donít do a better job driving to the net to score goals on Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price, they wonít stand a chance.

Craig Anderson canít do it all by himself.

Instead of making the trek home with a 2-0 lead in this historic first-round playoff series, the Senators have be satisfied with a 1-1 split after they dropped a 3-1 decision to the Habs at the Bell Centre Friday night.

As the series shifts back to Scotiabank Place Sunday for Game 3, the Senators have time to do some soul-searching after only winger Milan Michalek was able to beat Price despite having 29 shots.
