Poor excuse. This is our 3rd game in 4 nights so everybody's tired.

However, injuries are a legit reason and no doubt a part in the scoreline thus far. People can talk about other players stepping up, but numerous injuries (espcially to key kogs) are impossible to fully replace. And even if the depth guys do pick up the slack on the scoring lines, who becomes the depth guys that the depth guys have left vacant? I know what it like for you folks now from when Alfie, Spezza, and Havlat (+ more minor players) were all out at once along. Thankfully, we haven't had it nearly as bad as you guys so far this year. Fingers crossed nobody's hurt in Turin, for either side.

Sens are still in a slump though, so don't rule out a comeback. Early in the saeson I'd be confident we'd be heading for a blowout with us up by 2 in the first and having a huge health advantage. But this current Sens team is in a sad state of affiars. I just don't know.......
