A win!! Oh my God, A win!! Yippee! Yahooo! BAWLS! What could make us happier?
Having TSN's Pierre McGuire as a guest, that's what! Pierre is back again with us this season and we really think this may be his best interview ever on the Underground. Pierre goes over all the hot Sens topics with us, including the ever-present puck moving D-man issues, Spezza, and Ruutu but he has some cautionary words for Sens fans also.
But this is a time for celebration! The losing skid is over and the Sens seemed to climb out of their funk this week with 3 of a possible 4 points:
Montreal 3- Ottawa 2 SO
Ottawa 4 - NY Rangers 1
Surprise, surprise, a full 60 minute effort resulted in 2 points and restored some faith in the Sens fans. By the way, a big thumbs up to those same fans for the standing ovation and respect they showed Wade Redden on his return to Ottawa. Fortunately, the players themselves showed no such respect for him as he was victimized several times during the game. He's all yours, Mr. Sather.
Ruutu seems to also have won over many of the hometown fans with his effective play. He may not be quite so popular in NY though. As we discuss, Stooli was right and he basks in his glory.
The Sens bounced back from some bad bounces, and bad calls, this week and we talk about what that might say about the team. The muckers also get their due in this week's show and we discuss ways to plug a 5- hole.
The News, your e-mails and our inner fashion critics' opinions on the new threads for the Senators. That, for those of you keeping score at home, makes a podcast.
