Ben, 7:28 Friday night: "Wow... we won!"
Due to some poor timing (both on the part of myself and the Senators) I managed to miss each and every one of the Senators goals last night. But I hear they were good. I watched them earlier today on TSN broadband, and wow, Martin Brodeur did suck. Ray Emery sucked just as much later in the contest, but luckily he sucked about 1 goal less.
Once again, I've gotta give it up to the Captain (and future Prime Minister of Canada) Daniel Alfredsson. When he's playing well, we win. It's just that simple. Not to mention the fact that Dany Heatley and Jason Spezza were ON during the game.
Dean "role player" McAmmond also scored during some clutch times to keep the team afloat.
Did it occur to anyone in the Senators management that the sens might play a team that also wears red? The Toronto Raptors had a similiar incident during their opening game, as the New Jersey Nets arrived for the tip-off wearing the same shade of red as the entire Toronto crowd. The Devils will be wearing their white 'away' jerseys when they play the sens at Scotiabank Place, but still, it kinda diminishes the effect.
I expect an entirely different game. It'll probably 3-2 or 2-1 (sens win of course), plus it's on Saturday, prime beer-drinking time. Did you know that Dany Heatley scores 45% of his goals during Saturday night games? Well you shouldn't, because that's a lie.
New Jersey Bloggers:
Go to my profile, send me an email and we'll get a little Q&A going to post before game 2 or 3. We can talk about which goalie is more likely to slash the other in the face.
