Senators' Mike Hoffman: Racks up three assists, eight shots in win

Hoffman snapped his season-opening skid in emphatic fashion with three assists -- one on the power play -- and eight shots on goal in Tuesday's win over Arizona.

He'd been quite active on the ice, but hadn't gotten in on the Sens' goal-scoring party early on; that changed in a big way Tuesday even though none of his shots made it through. Having racked up 48 and then 59 points in the last two seasons, Hoffman's established himself as one of Ottawa's most valuable offensive contributors, so there should be plenty more to come -- including goals, which he's overdue to collect some of after firing 20 shots without hitting the back of the net so far.
