Hey again, Undergrounders! We’re back with your weekly, sort of, Ottawa Senators podcast and this week things are a little happier. WE FINALLY WON SOME GAMES!! Not only that, but the boys looked pretty damn good doing it!
Has hell frozen over? No, just Ottawa. Damn it’s cold! But after a decent week, our cockles are just a little bit warmer:
Ottawa 4 – Boston 6
New York rangers 2 – Ottawa 0
Carolina 1 – Ottawa 5
Ottawa 3 – Atlanta 2
Montreal 5 – Ottawa 4 SO
We got a little bit of everything out of the Sens this week, topped off by an incredible end to the Montreal game. The wins and excitement were a far cry from earlier in the week when we saw Hartsburg calling out the stars and Murray threatening big moves. Whenever trades get mentioned, it always seems that Jason Spezza is right in the middle of the talk but after his play of late, he really has given us, and especially Murray, a lot to think about. Your e-mails repeated asked the same question; can you risk losing this guy? We discuss.
What is no longer a question is Martin Gerber’s future. He’s off to Bingo and his days with the Sens are certainly done and maybe even his days in the NHL. But not before we get into one last rowdy tiff over him.
This, of course, lead to the recall of Brian Elliot from Bingo and the young man did just fine. We take a closer look at his debut.
Stooli does his thing with the news, a pile of e-mails and wee bit of silliness at the end of the show involving our love for you and facial hair.
Note to the Underground poolies: Don’t forget to e-mail me (Russell) sub picks before midnight Sunday, Jan. 25th.
Rise up Tank Army!
