U-G-L-Y, Sens ain't got no alibi

Wow. I'm kind of glad I didn't have to see that. A 5-0 loss to the Canadiens, with a bunch of their best players out of the lineup? While the Sens had 13 skaters expected to make the lineup, including Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley. Sounds pretty bad, although I didn't witness it first-hand.

Some statistical info about the game, that might help paint the picture: The Sens were outshot 30-21 in the game. Three of Montreal's goals were on the powerplay, and the Sens had 34 minutes in penalties. The Kostitsyns (Sergei and Andrei) combined for five points, while Andrei Markov had three. The only thing I'm a little disappointed to have missed are the four fights, including Cody Bass v. Tom Kostopolous, Chris Neil v. Alex Henry, Zach Smith v. P.K. Subban, and Brad Isbister v. Henry again.

Hopefully some of that emotion carries over into the game tonight, as the Sens host the Canadiens. The game is on TSN tonight, and on TEAM1200. Cuts may be coming tonight, so I'll try and update if they've happened.
