As of this afternoon, the Senators are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference. Two things have changed since the Sens were in first: The standings and the coach. If I were Bryan Murray, I would be throwing this image in the face of every player in the dressing room. It should disgust every member of the team.
Not only have the Sens fallen out of first, if the playoffs started today, they would not have home-ice advantage.
With Murray behind the bench, I expect stability (or at least expect-ability) to soon be restored in goaltending and in ice-time distribution.
Does stability + motivation = wins? Sens fans around the world are praying that it does.
