Ahhh, feels good, man. It feels good.

Since we're not allowed to gloat I have nothing to say.

Zibanejad had an excellent game. I really hope this kid has turned a corner and has started to advance to another level.

Zibanejad has so much development left yet still looking great. Wouldn't mind Benoit on the team next year on the 3rd pairing.

I really think he has. He's doing everything very well on the ice. He's been a slow learner but given that he is still so young I only see an upswing in his future.

man, what a game. Real gutsy performance by the guys. It wasnt as pretty as a game with our stars would be, but the sens looked like the better team most of the night, completely outworking the other team. Kudos to the coaching staff as well, it's clear that they were the better staff in preparation for tonight.

The game had, IMO, about 8000 leafs fans out of the 19499 announced attendance, with a heavy concentration towards the upper bowl obviously. I also noted a few suites full of leafers. That said, the sens fans went hard all night, matching the fan intensity easily. I was on the 300 sides, in a section that was probably 60-65% leafs fans. Very proud of the fellow sens fans in the section that counter-cheered them all night. To the credit of the leafs fans, at least in my section, even though the majority were piss drunk as usual, they were not confrontational and other than profanity issues, very respectful. This was probably a function of the game being so close and see-sawing all night, but for tonight at least, they were fine. I'll also mention that in the first period, a very distinct "oh ah silfverberg" could be heard for a while when he was on the ice from somewhere around the 300's behind the leafs net.

Back to the game:
- Alfredsson had a very very good night. Just solid all around and leading the attack quite often.
- Bishop looked a bit shakey on his glove hand, missing a few pucks (but still making the save by deflecting it). I expected after noticing it that the leafs would shoot glove more often, but didnt notice a real adjustment.
- Solid job by our patchwork defense. Yes, there were a couple of mistakes and giveaways, but overall the entire group deserves a big pat on the back. Extra applause for benoit on that block, sens fans went wild for him there.

leafs:
-scrivens has serious rebound control issues.
-kessel was the most dangerous player on the ice from both teams. You could tell he was the only real star player in the game. To their credit, the sens defense did a good job taking the pass away from him, and bishop did the rest.
-leafs defense looked really lost at some times. Gunnarson was the worst i think, but phaneuf, especially early, had a ton of giveaways defensively and misplays at the blue line offensively.

all in all, a great game. I was extremely worried knowing our injury situation, and not expecting much, but the guys really delivered. Cant wait to pick up my free big mac tommorow. Also, big props to the sens sound guys for playing song2 as the goal song for the winner and for after the final horn. Really made the game feel like a sens playoff game.


edit:
also, looking at hf, it seems many leafs fans are griping about the officiating. Being in a majority leafs fans section, i can say that this was a complete non-issue to the fans watching at the rink. I dont know if the commentators were influencing leafs fans at home or they're just being homers, but really, that's not the reason they lost at all. A few may have complained about goalie interference on the second goal, and that kadri "trip" was barely noticed by the fans around me. The biggest gripe about officiating i heard from them was about the linesmen being primadonnas on the faceoffs.

Great game, my first live game as an out of towner. Honestly didn't expect too much with all the injuries. The crowd was awesome after all I'd heard I expected to be drowned out by leaf fans.

Leafs post game thread is hilarious.

Saying we're obsessed with them and that's why a couple posters went over there and said something.

I guess they missed the group of Leafs fans who were here BEFORE the game, but somehow disappeared afterwards.

But yes, the obsession is one sided. Whatever makes them feel better, I guess.

Just like a girl to spoil my joke... party pooper.

So glad to see that:
- Greening got the message and repeated it in his interviews.
- ZBad is showing the reason for his high draft ranking
- Turris looks great despite not scoring. The pressure of playing on the top line will help his development
- Silfv is a steal. Great 2 way game.
- Our D may not contribute as much offensively but are much better than expected defensively
- All things considered our goal tending is superb compared to other years
- Loving the big Bingo guys on 3rd-4th lines. This opportunity will advance them too
- Different guys are contributing and that's how this team can win.
- Almost forgot.... Phaneuf sucks... Leafs suck.

I've always liked Gryba and thought he should have been called up sooner but he's much better than even I thought he would be. Could he handle top four minutes over a full season I wonder?

With Gryba, Wiercioch and Benoit all looking NHL capable we should be able to concentrate on upgrading our top six forwards in the offseason.

Last saturday, Leafs fans were saying this:

We are missing a top 2 defenseman (Gunnarsson) too... when Erik Karlsson was mentioned.

Tonight:

Gunnarsson sucks.

I'll give a shoutout to Turris who really brought it tonight.

Lots of Leaf fans, sure, I was in 325 F, but it was very satisfactory in the end.

Sens outshot the Leafs for the most part, and for all the talk about how "tough" the Leafs were, the Sens more than matched them with big hits.

Close game, that 2nd period was very entertaining, but Sens came up huge at the end, despite the advantage in PPs that the Leafs got.

Nice to see the Sens fans representing tonight.
