Erik Karlsson scored a goal Thursday as the Senators cruised to a 3-1 win over Florida.

With his play early on, Karlsson is proving why he was the Norris Trophy winner last season and why he's the odds-on favorite to lead all defensemen in scoring and perhaps take the award home again this year. Jason Spezza also found the back of the net for the first time this season in the win, as did veteran Chris Phillips. Marc Methot picked up a pair of assists.
