I do not like that this is an afternoon game. And of course the Leafs get prime time billing. Hell they're still the lead story on TSN and Sportsnet most days, despite missing the playoffs. Forget Sens clinching the playoffs, there's some sorta tiff between Wilson and Kaberle!

Hopefully the sens don't play down to the Islanders(which they kinda have a habit of doing).

That's ok, it's a good week, the Sens clinch, the Leafs eliminated the day before, Early April sunshine and mid-20s, the crocuses are blooming, the kids jumped in to the cold, cold pool today even.

Not sure what to expect, afternoon games with summer weather and a spot locked up could mean disinterest or river hockey.

There's no way I'll be staying inside to watch this one. It's just way too damn nice out.

You easterners are sure getting nice weather. Westerners will be watching this game as it is stormy on the west coast. Heavy rain and powerful winds are battering us over here and will continue over the Easter weekend. Hopefully the power will stay on or come back on in time for the Sens game. Still a chance to win the division.

 :laugh2: I have perfected the art of PVR-ing and staying the hell away from any news source, television, radios and computers.

The Habs get the primetime billing. They are the national game on HNIC. Surprising that Ottawa will have to see the Leafs game because the Sabres are the team of interest for Sens fans right now in regards to the division not being clinched yet. TSN is dumb by leading with the Leafs, really dumb. For Sportsnet, it must be the Ontario channel doing that. The West and Pacific channels show and talk about Ottawa first and later on, the Leafs.

The Flames fell into that trap last week with the Islanders and so did the Flyers. The Senators are smarter than that, they are a playoff team and a win assures them 5th place.

We just re-position the TV on the wall in the family room, sit on the patio and watch!  Best of both worlds...enjoy the sun and watch the game!!   :nod:

And between periods I will be in the kitchen getting ready for the gang I am having in the next day.  Should be a busy day!

I'm debating watching the game or going to see Clash of the Titans.  Only reason I'm thinking of the movie is I have to hit Futureshop to get a PS3 optical out cable as my receiver needs it to blast the audio.

This works for me, despite me hating afternoon games, as my wife is out so I have to stay home while our daughter naps.

They should've started Leclaire. We can't move up, we can't move down and its a beautiful Saturday afternoon. I don't think Elliott's (or many of the other players') heads are in the game.
