It must be play-off fever-er, or maybe the spring air but we just keep getting sillier and sillier every week. Unfortunately Ottawa Citizen sports writer and web editor James Gordon, our guest this week, gets caught right in the middle of it. Actually, it was kind of fun to do a goofy interview again like the old days, don't cha know! James got right into the spirit of it too, but he also brought it when we did get down to Sens business.
This week saw the Sens clinch a play-off spot, helping to erase the memory of last year's fail.
Canes 3 - Sens 4
Snes 1 - Isles 4
Sens 5 - Florida 2
After tying up 5th place, the Sens predictably came out flat against the Isles. So much so, we don't even bother to talk about it. Hey, we can throw them a mulligan on that one. The big story of the week, of course, was Alfie's 1,000th game against the Panthers. We sing his praise and question why others didn't, not that it should surprise us, right?
In Open Ice, we take a look into the near future and give thought to our possible 1st round match-ups. Devils or the Pens? Pick your poison with those two but we have our opinions on the pros and cons of both. We also take a look at the the phenomenon of the Sens losing too often to lesser teams and find there is some real proof to it. Another Sens signing, Kuba's surgery, Russell's rules with no exception, the News and possibly the most disturbing thing Stooli has ever said on the show.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em!
