Best moments of 2011-2012

The Sens are not playing right now but we can remember the best moments of last year. Which ones are yours?

My list:

Rundblad’s stretch pass to Greening vs Toronto Oct 30 2011

Murray trading for Turris vs Rundblad & 2nd

Eerie night when number 11 was everywhere
- Alfie scored the 11th of the season, the game winner and his 400th vs Calgary Dec 30 2011
- Foligno’s 11th
- Zach Smith 11th

Overtaking the NHL All Stars game in Ottawa with deserving Sens players (Alfredsson, Spezza, Michalek, Karlsson & Greening)
- Spezza and Alfie participating in the hardest shot - both over 100 mph

Alfie's countdown

Sens making the playoffs

Karlsson’s 78 pts season

Turris’ Goal vs Rangers April 18, 2012

Karlsson is a Norris winner

You pretty much nailed the big ones... Although I'd add Neil/Carkner defending Karlsson in the playoffs, Phillips' 1000th game (with 2 goals, including game winner!) and maybe the time Nordiques Nation visited.

Yes, the Boyle jumping and Karlssons Norris will probably stick out to me from this season over the years. I still hate Boyle...what a puss.

That was indeed the beginning of some massive troll jobs by Ottawa. They tied and then won the game with what like seconds left? Pretty sure it was going to be Columbus' first win of the year as well.

I was at that game.

Overall, a lot of entertainment from this year's squad.

I think it's important to note "I 'aint even mad".

As a fanbase, I was proud of the fact that we were willing to let the team settle with the new coach and new system, and realize that instant competitiveness may not happen right away. (unlike other legendary summer teams in Ontario) The fanbase was really taking positives out of the early drubbings.

I think that general feeling permeated the dressing room, and lightened things up a fair amount, allowing them to play with less pressure and turn things around.

I also have to admit that picking up Bishop was fun in that he was an NHL-ready goalie who was had relatively cheaply and who could have easily gone to other teams with significant issues in net.

I'll add Neil hammering Staal, getting a penalty, stepping out of the box and destroying Ruutu. Only, of course, to get a ******** penalty. Crowd was booing the refs for the rest of the game.

Another one of my favorites this season:



Sadly the feed doesn't catch the Carkner/Stewart fight, but working there that night, they had it on the feed for the TV's outside my stand and I remember Carkner just absolutely laying into Stewart.

Don't forget the world juniors! Both for Zibby's gold medal-winning goal, and for Stone's awesome performance.

The Sens destroying Pittsburgh, 8-4! (Also it was the only game I went to this season.) I was pretty worried cause the Sens had only scored 6 goals in the previous 5 games (that one game vs Montreal was probably the most frustrating game of the season), but the Sens prevailed

Makes me miss Carkner already. Loved the team spirit Ottawa showed last season.

Feb 15th 6-2 win against the Panthers.

Game was hilarious. The panthers were just brutal. It looked like the Ottawa Senstrotters versus a midget house league team, recorded on an antique camera in an empty dark warehouse. Video kept cutting out at inopportune times. The announcers were massive homers, and the refs were brutal.

Neil checking Heatley in the home opener.
Our epic comeback in NY during the regular season.
Foligno's game winner with a few seconds left in the 3rd period vs the Panthers.
The atmosphere for games 3 and game 4 vs NY
The heckling of Leaf players at the AS draft

That game really saved us from a board-wide implosion.

The Sens at the all star game. Esp. the aliens part when talking bout the Sedins.

The home and home against Philly....Came out with 3 points....This showed me that this team was for reals.

Turris and Briere fight.

Foligno and Phaneuf fight.

Foligno against the Canucks....Hitting Kesler then almost killing Hodgson.

Against the Bruins....Alfies 2 onetimers almost coming back....Thomas freakin.

Crazy anthum singers in Ottawa...Opera lady, Harmonica guy, Konopkas sister...and so on.

Heritage train...everyone dressed all oldtimey...

Third period scoring.

Doh!

Let's not forget the insane string of comeback wins the team put together in the fall. Easily the most enjoyable season of sens hockey I can remember. Why won't this lockout end?!!

For those that do not know PatVolcom65, he no joke sounds EXACTLY LIKE Erik Karlsson.

It's uncanny.
