Simple, you can watch hockey during the NFL draft commercials.

That's why they created the "picture-in-picture" option for your tv.

Or, in my case, multiple tabs open. Half my screen on the game, half on NFL draft updates.

Two points still means we're going to the playoffs this year.

3-0 gets us to sixth. 3-0 combined with a Leafs regulation loss in their remaining two games gets us two fifth.

I'll be watching the Sens game, but recording the NFL draft so I can watch it afterwards. My Rams got two first rounders! :-)

as if there is someway Karlsson would EVER say this. If he leaves the game he's going off in a stretcher.

According to this (found it on ******) it would have been true

Power (Dis)Play? Teams In Black Draw More Penalties

Hockey teams wearing darker-colored jerseys are more likely to be penalized for aggressive fouls than teams wearing white jerseys, according to new research. Teams wearing black jerseys in particular get penalized the most, according to an analysis that may offer a window into the hidden psychological dynamics of the ongoing NHL playoffs.

Not sure about back then...but Im pretty sure the Sens have the worst ratio of powerplays vs penalties over the last 10 years or so.

(too lazy to research this stat to confirm haha)

Agreed. MacLean needs to keep the reigns tight and make sure our thoroughbred doesn't crash coming out of the gate.

This is going to be an interesting game. Love seeing OV back on his game...although not at the expense of our Sens.

Might want to cheer for the Habs-- a Habs win locks down a playoff berth, and then it's just about jockeying for position.

Hope fans are keeping expectations for Karlsson in check. Coming back to play is just another step in the rehab process.

Damn. I was expecting no less than a 4 point night, the first star and lap dances by the finest strippers.

Thanks for the pre-emptive caution.

I know Gryba isn't everyone's favourite, I'm a big fan of his and think him in a bottom pairing is a perfect fit for the future and this playoffs, other then that having Weircohe as your #7 is amazing news for Ottawa.
Our D and Goaltending is here for a deep playoff run, kinda worried about the forward depth

Only problem with sitting Wiercioch is he's one of the few that can create offense. Sure, Karlsson coming back will be a huge boost, but imagine we're down a couple of goals - it would be nice to have him back there to help the attack.

On the other side though, having Gryba to help on the PK is important too and I can see why he stays in the lineup.

Not gonna happen but a three man rotation for the #5 and #6 spots would be fine with me (Phillips-Weircioch-Gryba).

This was my thoughts. I'm not anti-Gryba by any means, but on a team that has obvious troubles generating offence, I would like to see Wiercioch out there.

No way Mac sits Phillips.
