Damn, I wish this fanbase on HF would have this mentality : fight to the end!

We give up so easily at the 1st sign of adversity, it's a shame

Let's grow some spine/balls! Is that because we have a very young fanbase mostly made of kids/teens?

Support them to the end! I find it already so impressive that this young, inexperienced and depleted team (because of injuries) are 12th in the league after a 5 games losing streak at the end of a 48 games season...

What happened to the real SensFanDan??

Hmmm, not really... that would take seven more years of not making it.

The Sens finished last season at .500 with an incredibly healthy lineup. This year we're one game below .500 with the most injury depleted lineup in the NHL. That's the opposite of choking.

Choking? I'm sorry, this team is expected to make the playoffs given their situation or be where they are at? They've battled hard and are facing some adversity. Now we have moronic threads like these.

God some people....

They haven't been playing well and historically the Ottawa Senators are very prone to choking (not so much since Paulrus) but they are hardly choking at the moment

They ran out of mojo/injuries caught up/traded away very popular locker room guys all at the same time

Things are looking bad but they aren't done yet

We need to win the next two games REAL bad though, if they lose even just one of them it could be disastrous

To those who have said why is this thread even necessary, or what a bad fan, or choking sens fans, or any of the other excuses/accusations made - I want you to understand that this is about a lesson in hubris.

1) The whole #peskysens thing was rubbish from the beginning. Maclean should have squashed that immediately. For the last few months this team and its fans have been chest thumping our supremacy despite the significant losses to injury that was suffered.
Although the team has played incredible and beyond expectations, when you start giving yourself these kinds of names you better be able to back that up in the long run. No one knows how the season will end up, but if we cannot beat Buffalo, Tampa, or Florida on the road - we really have no business being in the playoffs let alone calling the team #pesky.

2) If this was Toronto or Montreal, or any other team that the fanbase around here despises, we would be calling it a choke job. Five straight losses to the bottom feeders of the conference? The orgasms around here from dishing that out on the Leafs would be in triplicate. There are a lot of glass houses that have been broken this day. So if we can have fun calling ourselves #peskysens, then we should equally be able to have fun embracing our joke job that is currently taking place.

Or 3) Realize that this is a game, and the PeskySens thing just adds a bit more fun to all this.

I've never used a hashtag. What utter rubbish.

If the voice mail voice lady askes me to press pound, I just wait until she changes her mind. I'm always on the phone.

3) It was a dumb post and, as others have pointed out, it's not choking when your team has played far above its expectations and is only now suddenly playing at the level many thought they would once losing their top centre, top 2 d-men, top goal scorer, etc.

Stop trying to salvage a bad thread. The fact that you bring Toronto and Montreal into this like its some sort of "lesson" we should learn is laughable.

Even with their losses the last week, the biggest issue has been the inability to finish. They just do NOT know how to get those goals.

They are also missing a PPG C, a PPG D, and a 30+ goal W.

That is HUGE!

Before we were hanging just barely, now we are sinking ever so slightly.

I'm not really upset or worried. It is a touch annoying that we start losing now, but I'm not all that shocked. And having a team with players that can finish, would definitely give us a few more wins.
We have maintained the 5th/6th spot for most of the season with our injury depleted roster. In the final stretch we have lost 5 straight, three straight against the worst teams in the conference with the exact same roster + Craig Anderson.

I know we have had some **** luck, faced some hot goalies and been screwed over by the refs on this cold streak, but he's not wrong - this is the definition of choking.

No. It's not. Choking is when you're the overwhelming favorite and you fall short of expectations dramatically. If this injury-depleted, still in the 2nd year of a rebuild, Sens going on this losing streak is "choking" by your standards, then sorry your standards were too high. The team has never been a favorite unless you are just looking at it from a points-accumulated perspective. This team has overachieved all season. Look at Tampa's roster and look at ours. Can you seriously say we're a much better team than they are talent-wise? They have the one of the top 3 scorers in the world, their prize-winning defencemen, an elite playmaker and they also had Malone and Lecavalier return to their line-up. Who on our team matches up with that?!?
