Hey Groundhogs, we're back!
Sorry about that unexpected break in the broadcast schedule but the lights and mics are back on in Studio 11 this week and we're bringing it with both barrels. We had a lot to catch-up on this week so expect a full show with a ton of topics.
There had been 8 games since we last podded so we didn't bother covering them all but we did focus on 3 in particular:
Sens 2 - Habs 3 (SO)
Habs 1 - Sens 2
Trees 3 - Sens 1
I suppose you could say that 2 losses out of three against these teams isn't that big of a deal, as neither of them will be in the play-offs. But, it always stings a little more losing to these clowns. What's more disturbing is the way they lost. We see some unsettling habits sneaking in at just the wrong time that worry us just a little. We'll lay these out for your approval.
We take a look at some of the players who have been struggling of late and why that may be. We also discuss Murray's latest U.S. collegiate addition, update some other Sens' prospects, give our first impressions of Ben Bishop, make barfing noises while dissecting Ottawa's woeful power play and weigh-in on on the EK65 for Norris debate, and why there should be no debate at all.
The Cherry/Burke feud makes us giggle, we revisit the idea of who might be the best match-up in the 1st round for the Sens, read your emails, hear again from a certain bald goalie and we have a visit from an old friend of the Underground from overseas.
Buckle up! The play-offs are coming and we're in high gear.
