Hard to believe, isn’t it? We, Ottawa Senators fans, are smiling ear to ear about the play of our team and we’re happier than a Florida Panthers’ camera man!. How things have changed and how quickly they changed. There is no denying it, Clouston has this team ROCKING!
To a man, the team is playing like we haven’t seen in a long time. This week speaks for itself:
Ottawa 4 - Pittsburgh 3 OT
Buffalo 2 - Ottawa 4
Montreal 4 - Ottawa 5
Brian Elliot sets a Sens’ record for most consecutive wins by a rookie goalie yet we still seem to be hedging our bets on him. Ahhhh, what the hell, he’s been great! After all we’ve been through let’s just feel good about things for awhile.
Goaltending does lead us into an interesting conversation this week. Along with the returning Stooli, we talk about the best Sens goalie ever. Not sure we ever come to a conclusion though.
Carbonneau was not the right coach for the Habs but Shredder asks would he be the right one for the Sens? Could it now be anyone other than Clouston? Ovechkin got a lot of people talking this week with his 50th goal celebration and we are no different. Stooli’s News, People r Stoopid, e-mails and the return of an old favourite of the Underground.
