Well, hell of a series, and a hell of a season. The guys went out on their shields, and I'm proud of that. One little bounce and it could be the Sens moving on. I was watching the Devils-Cats and the 2nd Devils goal was from a puck bouncing around 3 sets of feet in front of the goalie and it bounced out for an easy goal... wanted on of those for us!
Bitter and sour though it is, credit to the Rangers. The have a system, and execute it almost perfectly for 60 minutes. Didn't give up any odd man rushes, and add in an all-star goalie and there is reason for goals being few and far between.
Sens played very, very, well, but again credit to the Rangers, they made the Sens pay for the couple of big gaffs they made. I got to see the Rangers D set-up from ice level at one game and TV doesn't do it justice, it is scary tight. Not the kind of hockey I want to see all the time, but they do execute it very well.
Hard to tell if Alfie will be back. He would leave on a high note with a tinge of regret from the playoffs. But the team is transitioning to a new generation and he is leaving it in good hands. On the other hand, he was the best skater on the ice last night. If his concussions, surgeries, and aches and pains, let him, I hope he is back to work with the young guys.
