The race for winning the division is not over yet. Elliot should be sharp to keep his shutout streak alive as long as possible. Not having Centre Ice, it is nice having all these games on RDS for the last half of March.

That's bullshit.  Yes he pushed him from behind but VERY VERY lightly.  Kaletta basically tripped over his own feet.

I have to wonder how popular Kaleta is on his own team....Fisher was not exactly swarmed by Sabres after the hit.   :smily677:

Good period by the Sens overall.  Elliott made some good saves - although not a lot it seemed since many Buffalo shots towards the net seemed to go wide - particularly in scrambles to keep his 'streak' alive.  He's at 163 min. 43 sec. not allowing a goal.

Nice goal by Kelly for the 1-0 lead....he just kept at it until it went in.   :thumbsup:

Here's a question.  If after a review by the league of the Fisher hit and they decide it was a dive and should not have been a 5 and a game, should they suspend Kaletta for being a douche?  I mean, if a guy is given 5 and a game which COULD lead to a 2-game suspension then the guy who dove should be disciplined too.

Ok, he definately embellished that a bit.

Ya think?  :mrgreen:

He'll go on the dreaded 'diver' list.

Yikes!  :shock:

That's gotta be his best blocked shot of the year. (If you can call it that)

Volchenkov takes a shot in the jaw better than Hecht takes a shot in the anke.

ARRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

I was hoping Elliot could get the new shutout record. :(

And what is with the Sabre's goal horn?  Friggin sounds like they won the Stanley Cup for crying out loud.

ROFL, Montidor (sp?) complaining about the high stick being missed.  I replayed it in slow mo and he was a good two feet past the stick when he whipped his head back as if he got shot.  Players shouldn't need to embellish hits to get calls.  If it's a penalty and the ref SEES it, they'll call it.  If not? Oh well, shit gets missed all the time in hockey.

This game is getting zany. Open hockey just benefits the hungrier team. And right now that's definitely the sabres.

Time to calm things down. If I were Clouston I'd call a time out but he won't. I don't think coaches are creative enough with time outs.

Meh. They have enough TV timeouts to work with.

I don't agree. That's obviously what most coaches think, wanting to save it for the last 2 minutes if they need it. But there's what.. 2 tv timeouts per period and often there are long stretches without one. After that 2 on 0 goal the sabres were all over the sens for 5 minutes straight. Frantic hockey. Clouston didn't end up using it first or last.

But it's great they beat the sabres. I think the northeast title is out of reach but I enjoy that the sens own Buffalo. It gets right under Sabres fans skin. If only we could get them in the 1st round.

Sens have made a nice adjustment for Elliott playing the puck.  In the last two games, there is almost always a player available for a short safe pass from him, so Elliott isn't winging it blindly along the boards to the other guys.  Only once tonight did he play one that was a bit out of controll.   

Big shot advantage for the Sabres, but it didn't feel like it.  Sens are back to being tough in front of their net and not letting much through cleanly. 

Alfie is da man to  :mrgreen:

Impressive 41 stops by elliott. Alfie is now PPG with 63points. Hopefully he can score 70 points. Regin still impressing me. I'm glad kovie is gone :icon_hiding2:

There's 3. First stoppage after the 6 min. mark, first stoppage after the 10 min. mark and the first stoppage after the 14min. mark (icings and goals excluded).
