Did u see Talbot chopping our goalie after he had the puck covered in our crease? Small scrum which included more of our guys getting facewashed
We actually looked EXACTLY like teams in the Jacques Martin days.
Dennis Potvin almost lost his marbles when Smith wouldnt fight Rinaldo(not the other way around)
Neil turned back to go after somebody(dont remember) and Simmonds went up to Neil, gave him a tap and Neil just passed him. 2 minutes later Simmonds scored.
It was embarassing
This seems like a much more objective analysis of what occurred than some of the posters are suggesting. MacLean said in the post game press conference that the Senators are not going to let the opposition push them around and take liberties. Therefore this issue should be addressed going forward, whether that is from our own personnel or acquiring somebody through trade. Murray always seems to respond to games like this, I wouldn't be surprised if he already has some players in mind that he is thinking of acquiring.
