And what a start it was! After 2 long years, the Sens returned to the play-offs and opened their series against the Penguins with an exciting win in a game that saw the teams trade goals back and forth all night. Every time it looked like one team was taking over the game, the other would score a big goal to turn the tide. But in the end, the good guys prevailed!
Sens 5 - Peng-u-ins 4
The third line was the factor that we anticipated they would be and Karlson the Apostle had a strong start to his play-off career. Two guys that do take some heat after this game are Spezza, who seemed to be indecisive all night, and Elliot. There is some disagreement on whether or not the Elliot abuse is warranted as he did win but some think the win was despite of him. As a matter of fact, there seemed to be a strange kind of vibe in this episode; call it a dark cloud on a sunny day.
We briefly skim over the last 2 games on the regular season but other than Alfie's 1000th game celebration, which we briefly discuss, who really cares? IT'S THE PLAY-OFFS, MAN!
Also discussed on this episode is the Floatalev injury and whether it really matters, the draft lottery, T(oronto)SN going full retard just minutes before the start of the post-season, the NHL showing absolutely NO respect to Sens fans, the winner of the regular season hockey pool and the restraining order being placed against Stooli.
They have a chance, folks! Just keep being red-er-er than ever-er before! Smoke 'em if you got 'em!
