If you're like us, it was a very strange week to be a Sens fan. On one hand, we are pretty ecstatic about the surprising winning streak that the Sens put together, something no one saw coming. However, we just can't get past something else no one saw coming: an elbow to the head of the Golden Gawd. An elbow that went unnoticed by the one guy we thought we could trust to catch these things; Fredo Shanahan.
Yes, Shanny, you broke our heart this week. We wanted to believe in you but we can't find a single other person in the hockey world, outside of dirty leafers and Torts, that thinks you did anything but screw this up 6 ways to Sunday. Our rage is on full display this week over this and the Konopka debacle.
Ok, it's not all anger this week. Overall, it was a damn good week for the boys:
Sens 3 - Canes 2 OT
Panthers 3 - Sens 4
Sens 5 - NYR 4 SO
Laffs 2 - Sens 3
Sens 3 - Bruins 5
We, here at the Underground, suspected the Sens would surprise a lot of people this season but we never thought they'd do it this soon! There are lots of reasons for this early season success and we cover it all as we break down all 5 games in depth. On top of that, we say good-bye for the year to Z-Bad, take a quick look at the Kyle Turris rumours and we have some inside info on the new clock situation.
We had some good e-mails this week that we share with you and we give the live stream another shot. Seems it went over pretty well this time. And, due to your positive response to the poll questions last week, we give the ol' Flip/Flop segment another shot. It might have legs yet!
So, we know it's tough to go on without our Golden Gawd but if this episode helps you get through the week, then we've done our part. If you are still angry after listening, grab a paper bag, a lighter, have a bran muffin and head over to Fredo's house.
