So basically this is it. Our last stand against the big bad Penguins. We've put up a hell of a fight, but they have us on our heels. To put it lightly, they've given us quite the beating so far. Everyone is bruised and battered and beat up. Our stars, who have returned from long term injury in the regular season are surely feeling the grind of playoff hockey. This will be no easy task. But if anyone can take down this powerhouse of a Pittsburgh team while being down 3-1 in the series, it's these self-proclaimed "pesky Sens". Pesky. It's truly the identity this team has adopted. These pesky Sens have show time and time again that this team will will not give up and will not surrender until that final buzzer has gone. But again. This will be no easy task. These Sens have been doubted all season. At first, there was no way this team could repeat the success they had last year. This team starts 5-0. Then, Jason Spezza, Erik Karlsson, Milan Michalek and Craig Anderson all fall to injury. There was no way this team could make the playoffs without the top guys. There was now way this team could carry on with a line up that consists of 13 players playing their first career NHL games. There was just no way. But with the emergence of young up and comers like Mika Zibanejad, Jakob Silfverberg, Patrick Weircioch, Eric Gryba and especially Ben Bishop and Robin Lehner, there was a way. They found a way. But let's not discredit our leadership core. Daniel Alfredsson was by far our best skater all season at the age of 40 years old. Sergei Gonchar played the best hockey he's played since he's gotten here. This team brought it all together. They said yes when everybody told them no. That's why I believe this team, of any team, will take down the Pittsbugh Penguins.

And if you want to waive that white flag. I say **** you and your white flag. Go Sens Go.





Here is the line up and as usual, they will likely be completely inaccurate.

Senators:

Michalek - Spezza - Alfredsson
Greening -Turris - Condra
Smith - Zibanejad - Silfverberg
Conachar/Kassian - Pageau - Neil

Methot - Karlsson
Cowen - Gonchar
Benoit - Phillips

Anderson
Lehner



Penguins:

Dupuis - Crosby - Kunitz
Iginla - Malkin - Neal
Morrow - Sutter - Cooke
Glass - Adams - Kennedy

Martin - Orpik
Letang - Niskanen
Murray - Eaton

Vokoun
Fleury


So whether or not we win. We need to rally together as fans and show our boys the support they deserve. Of course coming up short is never what you want, but sometimes there's no control over it. We've had a good season, and whether it ends tonight or not, I'm proud of our boys. They've shown us a glimmer of hope and we know the best is yet to come.







It's all there. We're going to Pittsburgh, and we're going to Play.

Regardless of the result this has been an awesome year. Go Sens Go! Force those Penguins to march back to Ottawa.

MainDotC 05-24-2013 06:43 AM

Sens will win, just as they did a few years ago on an OT goal by Carkner.

Iamok 05-24-2013 06:55 AM

Let's keep it respectable.

OgieO 05-24-2013 07:12 AM

MacLean said there would be lineup changes. Anyone know who's in and who's out?

Oops, forgot to post that in white.

TheRobinGoblin 05-24-2013 07:29 AM

Wish I could bring some of the fans of Djurgården* in the SEL over to Pittsburgh, to help cheer for Ottawa!
The team is going to need all the help it can get!


*Zibby's old team.

I think so too. But I thought we'd win game 4.

I had a bad feeling about game 4. Too many teams have a flat performance after a very emotional win in the playoffs. We have a bit of a history of it too.

But I gotta good feeling tonight. I think Alfie is trying to get us to relax and get the "nothing to lose" mentality throughout the room. I think we finally play a good game (don't think we've played well all series). Not sure we'll win, but if we don't we'll go down punching.
