Game was excellent, loved the reaction of the leafs fans after Greening scored. Building had such a great atmosphere tonight it was unbelievable.
Also Methot's hit was amazing!

Stache shows trust and the guys respond. Late in the 3rd Turris and Alfie had just finished a hard working shift and the next line was Zbad's. They were in the process of changing just as Scrivens held the puck on Condra's soft shot. For the O-zone face off in the last 30 seconds Stache left Zbad out there with Greening and Condra and Weir and Methot on D. Some coaches might have shifted back to Alfie and Turris but Stache showed confidence in a line that was playing well. It's those things that make the players respond and appreciate a coach like that.

I will agree that this game looked and sounded much different from the usual games vs the Leafs at SBP. Alfie wasn't booed every time he touched the puck , though there were some boos drowned out by cheers; the booing of Kessel was a nice touch....and the Sens fans in attendance did a really good job of counter cheering
the go leaf go chants,

There just didn't seem to be the same vibe of being overwhelmed in our own building.

Honestly, I got the vibe that the Leafs were playing not to lose, and the fans had the same feeling.

It's nice to come up with the win as the underdog.

I watched the game as the only Senators fan in a room of 12 people. What a great way to end it!

My favourite quote from one of them was this: "Jesus, that Zibanejad guy is everywhere."

Bishop battled but I have to say, I think Andy would have had both goals.

i love the Greening/weed reference in nhl.com(Green Thumb).... it explains everything from their pun guys.

from TV it looked more blue than usual, but i never paid attention until this toronto star article. so i was more than happy to see the win, the way it went down; the show-off save, whistle, face-off, score... win. yeahh!

no depth, no problem should be our senatroll slogan

Andy definitely slows down the play a bit more. He catches and freezes everything. That being said, I thought Bishop played very well.

It's pretty hard to complain.

Andy makes it look so damned easy.

Bishop was working his ass off.

That's exactly it. It's not like he's fighting it though.

I've heard a lot about "toughest team in the league".

What a joke.

The color guy for the CBC is such a Leaf homer. I cannot believe they allow him on the air with such incredible bias. When the Sens scored at the end the guy sounded as dejected as the Leafs players looked. He even slipped up at the end and said "We were gonna get at least one point out of this."

We totally blew the script that the CBC had for tonight.

I was at the game tonight. Finally a game where the Sens fans matched the Leafs fans intensity (at least inside the building).

- Kyle Turris was great tonight. It didn't reflect on the score sheet. I've said this before, but for a young player, his 2-way game is phenomenal.

- Bishop played well. He fought the puck a little, but all around good game.

- I loved watching Grabovski and Kessel skate. Just amazing to watch.

- Coach MacLean has to be the MVP. I can't imagine where this team would be without him.

I find he's fighting the puck alot when he's in net. He makes most routine saves look like scoring chance when in reality they should just be gloved down or directed towards the corners. I think it has alot to do with him being so god damn tall. He struggles on low shots which is kinda making it look like his height is actually a disadvantage for him. Maybe I'm just used to seeing Andy making it look so easy out there.

But I agree, he works his ass off out there.
