These are the new Senators. The season has officially begun. This team is playing with confidence for the first time in a year and a half. They know they can win. Playoffs this year!
So if they lose their next game, play poorly... you're not going to be back here whining about how we're going to miss the playoffs right? :)
I would be careful about jumping to conclusions so fast. The Norteast is possibly the worst division in the league and it's so wide open. Under certain circumstances any team, except Toronto of course, could take the division. Boston- are playing sluggishBarfs- Struggling to scoreMontreal- Inconsistent and incredibly averageToronto- just plain badOttawa- Always seems to be something
If anyone of the teams gets hot they could leave everyone else in the dust. It should also be mentioned that it's the quarter pole and the schedule is 82 games. We've seen teams in recent years such as Montreal, New York, Ottawa be on top of the standings only to collapse and limp into the playoffs. Remember; anything can happen.
Hey im all for getting horny about our team and work ethic, but losing Leclaire for a month right before the most pivotal stretch in the season has me worried.
I have some faith in elliot, but he is our backup, and he is not Leclaire.
Someone upstairs hates us sens fans!!
Lets also keep in mind that except for that 3rd period, they were playing like absolute crap. If we hadn't turned it on in the 3rd, we'd be bitching about how much they suck and lethargic they looked.
Any hockey player will tell you, the key is to remain even keel and not get too high or too low.
