I attended Monday's fine match between the Senators of Ottawa and the Devils hailing from Nouveau-Jersey. The Senators prevailed - we did not fall into their trap. Enough of the niceties...
Now to be an ass: New Jersey is a boring team. They wanted to win that game 1 - 0 and then stand in the crease for the rest of the game. Luckily, the Senators enjoy winning by more than one goal... and thank God that Brodeur allowed a goal in the third period instead of in the third overtime because I would not have been able to stand it.
On the other hand, it could have gone the other way quite easily. Emery did not allow a goal, but he didn't look completely comfortable all the time - he'll have to play better to end this series in 5.
Oh the irony! The Senators nearly scored right before the end of the first (?) period, and Scotia bank place was going to explode. But the period was clearly over before the puck went in the net, but if we had a nice little 1.5 second buffer like in New Jersey, it could have been a different story.
I totally saw Ian Mendes and Brent Wallace talking before the game outside Scotiabank Place, I wanted to say 'hi' and take a picture but I was nervous. Should I be this excited about local celebrities? They both do the Sens Underground podcast from time to time - very cool of them. Still... I wonder if they hate each other...
...and the sens - sick 'em? Next game we take a bite out of them.
