Many Sens fans asking/praying for Andy to stay in the net. LOL


Game 3 was a stinker...yet my confidence remains high.  We have seen this pattern from them for a couple of years now. 


I expect Game 4 to be good, in our favor. Andy normally shuts the door after a loss like that.  :happy dance:

Anderson usually bounces back, but this is two bad games in a row. While the Sens won game 2, that was in spite of Anderson's play. At least 3 of the goals Saturday should have been stopped.

Let's hope Boucher pushes the right buttons going in tomorrow's game.

I think the team will be on tonight.  Steal one, bring it home and let's see what happens.


We still have a dominate record in the Rangers barn.

What the hell was that last night?  They were never in the game.  Very sloppy.  Any word on Karlsson's injury?  They better turn it around Saturday or the series is done.
Time passes, things change, the Sens WILL WIN the CUP.

Both games in NY they looked like crap. Not to mention most of game 2. There's a lack of fire in their game. As much good as Boucher's system has done for their defensive play, it seems to have sucked out the heart and emotion.

Oh Ya. Very good game for entertainment Value on Sat.  Wish the hell the Sens could pop one early for a lead once in a while.   :smily677:


Have you ever seen anyone turtle quicker than Tanner Glass? 


That Dirt Bag was invisible , as were the feistier Rangers after Chris made an appearance.  Nobody wants to mess with Neiler.  :paddle:

What a great game last night for the boyz.    Something Magical is happening here...unlike our past runs, this one is different.  What a team, Guts, No Quit, Bend but don't break.   I love it.


Pens/Caps...who cares..we match up well against either but the Pens seem to be hurting in which case I say.. Tough.  Lets keep this going   :spin:


Edit: Just picked up two Seats for Game 4 (Home game 2) for Round 3.    :banana:

I just hope the Pens and Caps beat the hell out of each other tonight and whoever wins limps in the 3rd round with 10 injuries.  :nod:

So we definitely want the caps, right? Alot of star power on that pens team.

I've NEVER seen the Sens play like this. Ever. Who are the vocal leaders on this team? They must be good leaders. Alot of heart on this team.

Pittsburgh again. One of those teams the Sens just don't match well against. Hopefully they change that trend.

I am hopeful we change the outcome. 

2006-7  Won 4 - 1  - Round 1 - Sens went to SCF
2007-08 Lost 4 - 0 Vs Penguins in Round 1
2009-10  Lost 4 - 2 Vs Penguins in Round 2
2012-13 Lost 4- 1 Vs Penguins in Round 2
2016-17 ECF ????

Pens are 4 - 1 in Series wins against Ottawa.   It's our time if our team can tighten up things.
I still like our chance based on Heart and Desire of this team.

If they keep pounding on Crosby and keep him out of the play while keeping an eye on Malkin and creating lots of traffic in front of Fleury then the Sens have a good chance.  The big keys will be to win the forecheck game and keep cycling the puck. 
Time passes, things change, the Sens WILL WIN the CUP.

 :icon_agree:

However, that's probably been Ottawa's biggest flaw these playoffs. Look at the comeback 6-5 win against NY. Most of the goals were deflections in front of the net. The next 2 games in NY, no one was going anywhere near the front of the net. Too much inconsistency on that front.
