I didnt read any posts before this page, so if this is repeat, I apologize.

Ottawa played Flames hockey better than the Flames for 2 periods, but looked exhausted by the 3rd. The Flames looked generally disinterested until the goal. Iginla was completely contained all game long, much like our top line was, so the defense did their job for us. Much fewer mistakes this game compared to last night, but they need to fight through those checks to get into scoring areas. Its hard to see who was the better goalie since neither had to do anything spectacular. Once again, Redden was missed the most on the powerplay, even though we missed Havlat, I dont think everyone realizes how much Redden makes our powerplay go. Spezza cut down his mistakes big time tonight, but didnt create much of anything, same for Heatley. Chara played like he can tonight, same with Philips.

I am not too disappointed, it was a boring boring game and we couldve snuck this one out, but one too many breakdowns late cost us. At least it was physical.

I believe the Flames lead the league in games played. 3 in the past 5 nights as well.

I think it might have been a little more even then you think... I didn't think Ottawa came out tired, they came out hitting.

I don't know who said Fisher and Schaefer had great games, but they were the only two Ottawa forwards on the ice for both goals against.

It's Darryl Sutter hockey. You might hate it, but thats what they do.

I dont think you can give Calgary all the credit for the third. The sens were also clearly playing defensive (hence the Jacques Martin comparisons) trying to squeak a 1-0 win. Not to take anything away from the flames effort though cause they did play quite well.

The 1st wasn't. Too "exciting"

The 2nd and 3rd is probably what you'd see more

So? They were still the best Sens forwards (with Neil as well).

Ottawa's record with Havlat; 16-1

Ottawa's record without Havlat: 5-3-2

True, I was a little surprised to see them sitting back on a 1 goal lead. I expected them to keep on pressing.

When Calgary scored the tying goal, it was about 3 seconds after I remarked "Ottawa is trying to kill a penalty, but I guess no one informed the players that it's 5 on 5".

A lot of speed out there in the 3rd period and Ottawa was running out of gas.

Calgary definitely brought it when it counted and that's why they have 2 points while we only have 1.

I think it was pretty clear in the 3rd that they were exhausted. There were a few times in particular where I saw guys reaching for pucks instead of skating towards them. It was two games in a row that were more physical than almost all the games this season. Its easy to understand why they tired in the 3rd. I am not going to complain, two points in two games and had a chance for more in both. could have been worse.

Is it just me or is it a bit inapropriate to be talking to Chris about his alcoholism and saying things like "you couldnt stop drinking" in front of his 10 year old?

If we step back a bit, we've also played some tough competition when he's been out.

It's kind of an annoying coincidence.

I only saw the third but I agree they were strong in the Calgary zone. Created sustained pressure and stole a few pucks as well. But they need to play a different game in their own zone, not just chase the puck.

Kipper once again saves Calgary. I really like Ottawa. I dont know why you guys are in panic mode. Your the best team around and in a slump whatever.. You cant win em all. I think you fans have your expectations of this team waaay to high. They'll pick it up again once they get back to the east.

No offense to you or the flames, but if Ottawa was playing like they did in November and Calgary was playing like they did tonight, Ottawa would have destroyed them. I love the Flames and all and I've seen enogh Flames games to know how they play, but Calgary shutting down Ottawa in the third was nothing short of the Sens playing like ****.

In other news, I wouldn't mind seeing Petr Sykora on this team along with Weight.

Smolinski is good in bringing the puck into the other team's zone but he doesn't have enough talent to do anything after that, the defenders just easily strip him off the puck.

I second that. He obviously hasn't. Search for his comments on how he thinks the Sens are going to pad their stats against Colorado. That's one for the quote boards.

I don't like playing the "if" game.

It's pointless because you can't prove anything.

No, the Senators allowed Calgary to dictate the pace of the game. They have this ability to make any team play down to the sloppy defensive levels. Once that happens, the Flames own teams.
