It was funny watching Chris Phillips the veteran handle the puck like a live grenade and slap it over to Boro in our end and then watching Boro make a calm outlet pass

that's what happens when a d-man is switched onto his wrong side for the first time in over a decade and is paired with a rookie.

Nope, sorry. Borowiecki has an 78 in passing and Phillips has a 70.

I'm not very impressed with Boro thus far. But its only been a few games, that could be from nerves though. Looked better than Wiercioch(not saying much) at this level, but wasn't as solid as I was expecting.

You can't tell much in the first couple games beyond physical talents. And Boro's skating, strength and passing looked good for the most part.

The momentum shifted in that one and the jitters came with it. He's just here to get a taste so the next time he's back he understands what it's about.

Seeing it during the game, I thought it was just incidental. Not sure if this changed my mind, but the end result was definitely a cross-check to the chin. I still think Clifford was just bracing for impact.

I guess what bothered me is the statment by the Stache about the ref working last night's game was calling EK a diver. It prejudiced the game for me. It allowed the appearance of bias ruin the game. You can't have that in sport because it takes objectivity out of the game. It made me question everything. When EK gets tripped and no call, it makes you think. Phillips stick gets slashed on a PP, no call. Same play happens...makes you think. The Boro penalty...makes you think. Kopitar freebie through the crease...makes you think. He was given the benefit of the doubt, EK wasn't.

So it really ruined the game even before the puck dropped and the NHL has to make sure that this scenario does not creep into the game.

Other than that, they played well, a rebound game from Anaheim and Quick played excellent. It happens and it is our time to face some adversity for the first time in two months. Two months. Turris, Spezza created plays. Smith to me looks like he is not 100%, no jam. Daugavins needs to sit. Butler hate is a little much, he did not socre but he had chances...I would prefer Greening up there. Anderson was good and unlucky.

on to Phoenix, let's not get any injuries and if we lose, we lose. The playeds geta break, look at their accomplishments, be proud and be confident that they can continue to play as they have for two chole months. You can't fake two months people....they are good but good teams will struggle at times.

I liked what the Euge said. Stay focussed. the "I ain't even mad " mindframe is a good one this year, I will try and stick to it and enjoy the rest of the season.

if he was bracing for impact why is his stick already up more than 3 feet away from Neil and he had a clear view from 15 feet away. It was Clifford who adjusted his path to skate towards Neil knowing Neil couldn't see him. That's an easy 3 games.

From that angle it looks worse than I thought. Not sure if he's simply bracing... but I think some form of cross check or high sticking call should have been called. Even if accidental sticks to the face are generally called as a high stick.

The thing is, why is Clifford changing direction on that play? The puck is going the other way. Makes no sense that he would skate right into Neil who IS following the play. Lifting up his stick is a bad decision whether he is bracing for the impact or not. It deserves a game imo.

I would be happy with just a penalty. Lol.

I have pretty much come to the conclusion that suspendable hits against the Sens won't ever be suspended. And if Clifford isn't a repeat offender, I doubt it gets more than a glance.

Boro made a nice tape-to-tape pass through the neutral zone from the circle in the second period (pretty sure it was 2nd) but besides that one play, he looked below average. Got caught out of position a lot.

Yeah, it was a pass to Alfie.

Overall, he looked like a more nervous, slightly more physical version of Brian Lee.

So what you're saying is that Brian Lee was just passed on the depth charts?

I'd guess over a set of stints in Ottawa Boro will get comfortable and move above Lee. I liked at the end of the game when the game got out of hand you could just see he said "**** it" and got angry.

He'll be a more useful player in the offensive zone than Lee, not that that says much. He'll be simple most of the time on transition...and he'll play with more intensity and be harder to play against.

Not necessarily.

Lee still has more experience at the NHL level.

Boro is perfectly capable of putting a train wreck performance together.

He's a rookie, and we already have Cowen in the line-up.

Pretty tough to tell without a larger sample size of performances.

If it were the playoffs, I'd still rather see Lee in there, at least right now.

This. Exactly.

He made one good play, and wasn't very solid most of the night.


If Boro has already passed Brian Lee on the depth charts, not only do I , but they might as well just trade him already. Because he isn't going to ever get a chance.

Boro may have been shaky, which is normal for a 2nd game, but these past two games have shown that he does have potential and his offensive game will certainly be better than Lee's or Carkner's.... Not that that's hard

At the 0:58-0:59ish mark of that video, you can pause it and have about 6-7 feet between clifford and neil and clifford is already looking at neil with his arms/stick up in a cross check position. In real time it look incidental...but with the replay,it looks a lot more iffy.

wow, it's incredible the amount of getting screwed the Sens are getting. It got to the point where it's not just luck and "it will balance out with time"

It is clear as water. And like Sensgal said, a stick to the face (even if accidental) should be a penalty.

No, but he's miles better than Chris Phillips for a few posters

I will second this, gave up on looking for the NHL to do the right thing years ago, but no penalty WOW!

Glad, I fell asleep at midnight and missed the rest of this one. Sounds like **** went from bad to worse. I'll be glad when tonight's game is over and the guys get a bit of a break. From what I've seen these last couple of games, they're missing that jump that we're used to seeing from them and they clearly need some rest.
