Solid win against the Islanders. Although I did not like the fact that the last 2 goals of the game were scored by New York. The sens should know by now that opposition goals late in the game only LEAD TO MORE GOALS! I am now petitioning the team to not allow another goal this season.
I have got to say that I am liking the way that the next few days are shaping up for the sens. Taking on the Flyers Saturday night should be a confidence boost for the team. Let's face it, the Flyers are lame ducks this season - the only thing they have left to play (lose!) for is the 1st overall pick next year.
The game Sunday against Pittsburgh should be big, they are our competition for the #4 (home ice advantage) spot in the conference, and our most likely playoff opponenent. Unfortunately, this game will only be televised on pay-per-view, which I will henceforth refer to as 'extortion TV' or 'EXTV'.
The game Tuesday is against the St.Louis ...do they still have a team? Their homepage pretty much admits defeat, "working hard to win you back". Yikes. Thank god they got the #1 pick last year, or else I think we'd see their GM jumping out of a moving car by this point in the season.
The sens are only 7 points behind the Sabres for first in the division - they COULD pull it off and put another banner in the rafters, and after all the crap that's happened to the team this season, that would be of some consolation to the fans, if not the players as well.
