Its Official - the Sens are in a funk. And not the cool kind of ass-shakin', bass-slappin', James Brown funk. This is one of those "can't get a break to save your life" type funks.
Call it the February blahs, the NHL season's dog days, whatever. Right now, everything is going wrong. And if you think it's frustrating for us as fans, imagine how the Stache feels? The poor guy has tried every line combination known to man to find a spark but nothing has worked. Just check the results:
Isles 2- Sens 1
Screaming Trees 5 - Sens 0 ( ouch!)
Blues 3 - Sens 1
Remember when the Sens were scoring like crazy and were one of the most offensively potent teams in the league? Yeah, seems like a long time ago. With the team now in danger of falling out of a play-off spot, we try to give some insight into what has gone wrong and what some of the answers may be. It's a lot of speculation and grasping at draws but we do our best.
We're actually a lot like the team this week - out of sorts. We even break format and "go commando", pretty much abandoning our regular format and just free-stylin'. Its like a thread we keep pulling and the whole thing keeps coming unravelled. Who knows, maybe we're better like this.
Aside from moping, we do touch on several other topics, including douche bag leafers, the parking nightmare at SBP, Clockgate in L.A., and what would a week be without our old friend Brian Burke showing up in the press, butting heads with someone or other. We read an e-mail from a long-time Groundhog and possibly put a stake through the heart of the weekly poll question.
Ok, come on guys, let's get back to some winning!
