Playoff talk
« on: April 15, 2015, 07:47:16 AM »
Now that the Sens have made some history and made the playoffs we have lots to discuss. Starting off are the usual articles by the various sports writers.

NHL Plus/Minus of the Sens  and Habs series  http://www.nhl.com/ice/blogpost.htm?id=38901
A little blurb on Cameron  http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=763265
Eastern Conference preview   http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/nhl/nhl-playoffs-eastern-conference-preview-1.3031118
Time passes, things change, the Sens WILL WIN the CUP. 
edit -  Hopefully within my lifetime.......

The wait has been killing me!  Today is going by so slowly.  I just want it to be game time already!

Agree 100%.  Already put on my car flag, and the Sens flag is flying on the house... :happy dance:

Now that I am older, I thought it was great that I seemed to have more patience.  Turns out I just don't give a damn.

I think Montreal better win both games in their building ... if this team comes back to Ottawa with a win they'll sense that they can win and then it's their game baby!!

I won't be able to turn on the game likely until after the 1st is over.  Thank goodness for PVR's.... But I must put the kids to bed first.

Wow ... yeah 5 and a game for a slash for Subban ... I thought it deserved 2 for sure ... probably five but a game is odd ... there was several as bad or worse than that already this game.   odd

Intent to injure.  Two hander tomahawk slash on a player that was nowhere near the puck.  Stone went down and rushed off the ice.  Luckily he came back but that play by PK is unsafe and not a normal slash you'd see in the game.

Montreal was 11 points ahead of the Senators over the regular Season ... they have the best goaltender in the game in net and they barely scratched a one goal win in their own building for game one ....

There is not a really rosy way for Montreal to look at that ... just barely positive.  On the other hand if this team can get back to Kanata with a split in Montreal this series looks VERY good for them.   Can't wait for game 2

Unfortunately, this is the real Hammond. 2 goals that should not have been.

Karlsson was also a dud tonight and directly responsible for at least one goal against.

On the bright side, as Bassman said, the Habs barely got out alive there. If the Sens clean up their defensive game a little and Hammond doesn't become AHL Hammy once again, the Sens certainly have a chance.

Well if Hammy would have got some better support then maybe....

That Lumberjack Slash as MacArthur put it was vicious and Subban should  be suspended for at least 1 more game.

Support can't help you if you can't stop a wraparound.

I love Cameron taking the attention for the Subban incident. Basically threatening to do the same thing to a Montreal guy if he's not suspended.

That wraparound was a pretty weak goal. We got lucky on 2 in the third as well that should have went in but one bounced over the net and the other hit the post.


Cameron better hope he doesnt get fined.
