I have no idea how they're winning.

Methot is very underrated....he's the only one who impressed me
Not surprising, I don't think they're trying to play 'crowd pleasing hockey'...playing 'ugly' hockey is exactly what they have to and want to do.

I have an idea of how they're winning...coaching.

Paul MacLean is a tremendous coach.

However I do agree that with the NE bulking up, we should add some size. Bergevin put in a claim for Sestito, so I am sure he's working on it.
Mcgrattan is the king of heavyweights and Kassian is a better hockey player than Scott.....

I don't think Ottawa counts on Alfie for all the offense. Obviously Turris has been asleep for a while but if the goal he scored has woken him up, his line will start to click a lot better.

Agreed on Methot though. He's looked very good all season. Now with Karlsson out for all this time, people have finally taken notice.
I thought after Boston called the timeout, they took control of the game. Boston turned the puck over non-stop in the first period and Ottawa cashed in.

The sens are winning games. What else is there to say. They have a good system and break out well. That's keeping their games close and giving them a chance to win

I'd rather it be a boring game and get the two points, thanks and exciting game and not get two points.


Price can't let in any cheap goals.

The first part is debatable, and we won't be seeing McGrattan at all so really we should be worried about the heavyweights in our conference this year, ie: Orr and Scott.

As for the last part, again debatable, but Scott is definitely a better fighter.

Plenty of teams have fallen prey to the Ottawa Senators.

Hell, the Blue Jackets got 10/12 points in the past week and half.
You're taking my post way too seriously.

All Bishops are expected to pay respect to the new Pope.

At least, he won't pull any miracles tonight

Doesn't matter who's in net, they all can shut the Habs out. Except perhaps if they sign Auld.

If the Habs play strong and don't take their opponent lightly, there ain't a team in the league they can't beat.

Well two things,

1. They have not played the West, can't really say that.

2. They have 4 goals versus the Sens in 3 games. Only win was helped by a favourable no goal call.

Why most of the teams often perform badly in their first game at home after a long trip on the road ?
