I think they will do it and I think once they get in, they're going to make some noise.


I'm pretty sure the Habs don't want to face them in the first round.

Totally Agreed

Re: Do the Sens push for the playoffs? - Yes in 1 of 3 scenarios
« Reply #62 on: April 10, 2015, 03:01:10 PM »
There are several different clinching scenarios for Ottawa, as follows:
■Ottawa achieves at least one point vs. Philadelphia, no matter what Boston or Pittsburgh does.
■Boston loses to Tampa Bay (overtime, shoot-out or regulation) on Saturday night.
■Pittsburgh loses its last two games (vs. NYI and Buffalo) in regulation.

So who are we going to face in the first round?

Call me a pessimist, but I think the pressure is about to get to the team. It's easy to go out when there's no expectation, but as playoffs talk starts to get into the young players' heads, I think they will start to struggle.


You damn pessimist!

GO SENS GO!

Montreal would be wicked considering the last time the two met in the Playoffs.
Tampa...it would be Bishop vs Hammond.  LOL...I can just see all the Bishop supporters going up against Hammond supporters all the while Lehner and Anderson find themselves on the outside looking in.


WOW.. Unreal and yet so just


And Hello boys, nice to read you again.

Not sure why but these teams are so much more exciting to watch than the sens versions from 2000-2010. Young, hungry, and playing with a lot of heart. If its Montreal it would be an awesome series... Sens have their number.

I needed to detox from the Internet.


But now that I want to talk about Playoff hockey, I knew exactly where to come.  :drink:

You know I'm too used to Facebook when I keep looking for a "like" button on particular posts!

Its strange, as noted above, this is more exciting this year than in years past.  Even though the team fought tooth and nail to make the playoffs, I feel oddly confident they can do something.

I'd say it has the feelings of the '07 run.  That was the year Ottawa had, what seemed to be a record amount of 1 goal games and come from behind wins, whereas in previous years they either lost those close games, or blew out the competition.

The teams run has been incredible alone given the position they were in  number of weeks ago.  But a number of the wins they achieved were true character wins, come from behind, or competing hard in OT to get the extra point.
