We're all volunteers paying out of our pocket. We operate on a loss. If you'd like to help, it will be put to use running the podcast and we'll give you huge kudos on the show!
Game thread started early as Sens are already making preperations for the game. Bingo Sens called up: D Eric Gryba (5G 6A +28 75 PIM), F David Dziurzynski (3G 14A +6 100 PIM) and F Derek Grant (15G 6A +6 29 PIM). Gryba and Dziurzynski are both guys who aren't afraid to drop the mitts if necessary, so I wouldn't be surprised to see them in the game to keep the blue team truculence locked down, Grant can score, and all three are good defensively.
Possible D pairings? Who knows. While Methot - Gryba would be a D pair who would crush people, I think I'd rather see something like this:
Gonchar - Gryba Philips - Methot Benoit - Wiercioch (scratch = Lundin)
I've no idea what the forward lines will look like until there is info on whether 9MM is in or not.
Info from practice on Friday:
Gryba wearing 62, Dziurzynski wearing 59, Grant wearing 57.

On paper I could see this work... but again, apparently "working on paper" doesn't always mean anything...
Yep, off course we're playing the blue team after all this...
and, of coure you all know we'll have Cole and Healy to endure tonight.
Well what do you know. Saturday night and the Sens are on CBC. Oh wait. It's the leafs that are on. We just happen to be the opposition.
just saw on Twitter Boob Cole is doing the Habs game. we get Hughson! YES! Praise Alfie!

Gamecenter confirms: only Maple Leafs broadcast available.
Wait? What!! the Leafs dominated the NHL???!!! when was this and was anyone alive for that
Of course they have to honor some past glory that most leaf fans weren't alive for at the time.
does it really count when the Goalies didn't even wear masks?
Why is the picture so grainy and not in color?
I did forget there were only 6 teams so the blind squirrel does get a nut every once in a while
This sums it up best
Screaming Trees really reaching back for glory here...
Spencer Callaghan @SenturionThis is so pathetic. Three quarters of the building wasn't born when is happened. #HNIC #Sens
Couldn't agree more
SensNation @SensNationLol #Leafs pre-game includes recap of 1963-1967 Leafs teams. So f**king pathetic... pic.twitter.com/02fNQrfr
Again agree completely especially when they boo Alfie
StooLi SU @ST00LIAll class Toronto. Booing the #Sens during such an amazing heartfelt geezer show.
another great Post.....
steve simmons @simmonssteveJohnny Bower forgot he had a mic on to George Armstrong: "I clapped for you how come you didn't clap for me." #leafs
wish they had fought over that
Well at least they have the right colored flag instead of the blue tainted one.
tj, you mean something like this?
Angelo Mosca & Joe Kapp Fight
LOL@Homer, Damn that is sad and pathetic--Joe Kapp was always wound a little tight.
I guess Gryba needs to do a little better job, this is sad and pathetic too.
was that the Leafs 4th line too?
Cue the Benny hill music.
