Vancouver entered Tuesday night's showdown with the Ottawa Senators just two points out of a tie for 1st in the NHL, which is a position that basically no one expected them to be in at the start of the year. The Sedins, as we've come to expect over the years, came to play, and they lit the Sens up for two goals, including the overtime winner in a 4-3 victory.
