Sens getting no credit in this thread...truly shocking.

FYI....No one here really gives a crap about the Sens... You can go whine on your own board about McCreary.. No place for it here..

The Sens simply played a better game than the Habs tonight who didn't bring their A game.. Easy game to forget if you stayed awake during it..On to the next game..

News flash: They are too small.

They are boring too.
I agree that teams when willing to play our Habs in a physical manner seem to be able to limit them, however we did have our pp chances and could not convert, we live and die by the pp so we must convert more of those chances and like it or not, MAB seems to be able to be our Souray/Streit/Schneider. We miss his value not defensively but his shot on the pp. I would also like to see Price start against Buffalo, it would be ill advised to let him sit too long, if Halak were to get injured, we would need a rusty Price, I say give him a few starts, if he falters then sit him for the rest of the season.

Habs suck against the Senators, Habs even lost against them first game when they come back into the league. I would like to know what our record is against them. Must be as pathetic as the Devils record.

Not quite, but since 1997 it's been pretty weak.

interestingly enough tonight they said the Habs and Sens are tied in the amount of wins with something like 47 wins each and 5 ties. Tonight was our 100 game against each other.

So it is pretty even.

Firstly, thanks for the laugh. I can see myself ripping that one off at some point.

blahh
Secondly, I think JM knows what he's doing with regard to this issue. Having either of the brothers back there on the PP opens up the danger of a counter attack where the PKers can attack a forward for one thing, and for another could lead to an odd man rush against. As you can probably tell from the evidence in tonights game (coupled to that of previous games), giving up odd man rushes is primarily the responsibility of the Dmen. In effect, we would be playing forwards as Dmen and, apparently, our Dmen are playing as forwards. We have been in that situation in recent times and we know how it ends up (bingo call lineups, anyone?). Clearly what JM is doing is creating a boundary between people playing as forwards and people playing on D, so the players all know what position they will be in from game to game and it could save a small fortune in sports psychiatrists bills (...so remember Mr Plekanec, you are a forward, you play at centre and if you ever get worried again, just hold onto that thought. 3, 2, 1... you're back in the room).

I could be wrong, because I only saw about 10 minutes of the 3rd, but AK looked totally useless. I suppose there is a good chance the rest of the team was too though. In one sequence he nullified a pp with a lazy high stick that was the result of a lazy play along the boards that cost him a foot race on a dump in, and then when he got out of the box, he fumbled a clear breakaway. I would cut the guy a little slack, but this is now 13 games in a row without a goal. He is simply a passenger on this team and I think when Cammy returns it is AK who should be scratched, not Pyatt.

Sergei seriously needs more ice time. If Martin had given him an oppertunity on every PP we had I'm pretty sure would could have ended with at least a point. He was by far the most dynamic player tonight.

Give Sens and Elliot credit but this isn't a game to despair about.
Wow, exactly.

Neither team played at their best tonight, both teams have looked much better. Thats what happens in a tight 4 point game with playoff implications. Both goalies were quite good tonight but Elliott was in a zone and out did Halak on a night where scoring chances were pretty abundant on both sides.

If Leclaire was in net the way hes been playing lately you guys may have won that game 4-2 and youd be praising your team. Ottawa needed a win and got it, they built off of their last game against Dallas which they showed signs of life for the first time in 3-4 games. Ugly game, but sometimes these types of games are like that.

Where were these abundant scoring chances you speak of? The habs were lucky to have one or two scoring chances the entire game. I bet Elliott won't have an easier shutout because he certainly wasn't tested much tonight

No, no you've got it all wrong. Obviously Darche was the better choice here...

I wish this team would throw there weight around alittle more, even the guys on our team who can hit don't seem to wanna go out of there way to do it. Sutton threw a couple nice hits, the kind that can really spark a team. Sadly I haven't seen very many good hits from the habs this year. We really miss the likes of Bouillion, Komi and Begin in that respect.

I thought Spacek played very well, he had to cover up for a lot of Hamrlik's brutal pinches and he was actually hitting the net with his shot.

Maybe it's because we don't give a flying **** about the Sens?

Stop trying to create a rivality with great classic teams like the Habs or the Leafs and stick to your problems... You've got a plenty.

I wonder what's more pathetic as a hockey market, Florida or Ottawa? At least Florida's and Tampa's fans know they're not a hockey market... Ottawa just keeps trying to convince themselves they're a great hockey city

I was a bit surprised because the game lacked intensity from both teams. Credit to the Sens for winning a big game at the end of the day though.

Gotta win wednesday...

Expect mediocrity.

Just because you've done worse before doesn't excuse a pathetic showing in a game of this magnitude.

Our PP was horrid and it could've gone a long way to end this in regulation. This was just a bad game, the team was not committed to outworking the Sens and in the end, we're back to where we were about a week ago.

Not like it's broken beyond repair, but this was one game that's gonna be hard to forget.

He made 29 saves and made some pretty good ones. If you've seen our goaltending recently youd understand how a couple of those shots going in would have completely changed the perception of your team played tonight.
