We're afraid the fat lady is about to sing. After taking game one and making us think maybe we had a chance against the Stanley Cup champs, reality has settled-in and it's all but over now. The champs are the champs and they are now looking like it. Full credit to the Sens for not rolling over and dying like we've seen in so many years past but it seems they are simply out-gunned in this fight. Consider the last 3 games:
Snes 1 - Pens 2
Pens 4 - Snes 2
Pens 7 - Snes 4
They almost stole 2 out of Spittsburgh and coming home it looked like we were in a great spot. However, they have been losing traction, little by little, mostly due to this Crosby guy that we think we heard the media mention once, maybe twice. There are other issues that have contributed to this precarious situation the Sens find themselves in and it all comes to a boil this episode as we go toe toe to toe on several issues including Spezza, our goalies (imagine), Spezza, the refs, Spezza, if the Pens are really that much better than the Sens, Spezza and Spezza. Jason may very well have coughed-up his last bit of good will with us as his dismal play in this series has been a huge factor in the 3-1 deficit the team finds itself.
Game talk does take up most of this show but a huge pile of your e-mails also take center stage this week, highlighted by two polar opposite examples of how to handle angry e-mailers. We also take a look at the major differences between these two teams and where they are on the development curve. Cloudy recounts of Stooli's bachelor party, a voice mail from Pittsburgh and we have a Jenna update for you. We do close out the show with an e-mail from listener Dan Posen who sums things up so well, we felt he deserved the closer's roll this week.
Enjoy the show. We fear there may be precious few left. Smoke 'em if you got 'em!
