I do. He's a good guy who got thrown into the absolute worst situation.

I can't believe it's been since 2007 that we've won a series until today.

Awesome it was against the Smurfs.

Two things really stood out to me in looking back at the series.

1. Goaltending. This is the most obvious point, as Anderson outplayed Price and Budaj by a huge margin.

2. Strength down the Middle. The Senators' centremen (Turris, Zibanejad, Smith, Pageau) completely ouptlayed the Canadiens' pivots (Plekanec, Desharnais, Galchenyuk, White, Halpern). After tonight, the Sens' centres had 15 points and were a collective +8. The Habs' centres had 10 points and -8. Desharnais, in particular, was completely invisible in this series.

Oh well, congratz fellas!

I guess it hurts less since I've always had a soft spot for the Sens (was pretty mad when Friesen scored that goal!)

Hope you guys good luck (Like you need more, hehe) for the rest of the playoffs.

Anderson is in the ****in zoooooooooone!

My rambling post:

Anderson - THE ROCK. Brennan you ignorant fool. Goaltending controversy? Maybe if you live in a mental ward. We haven't had goaltending like this in...ever. That feeling of knowing that he's on his game, he's got it handled, it gets passed on to the players and the fans. He is THE guy, MVP baby!

Turris - Where are you? Oh, right, you're scoring key goals in the playoffs. As clutch as they come. Meanwhile, Sam Gagner is playing X-Box. Yeah, I said it Oilers fans.

Alfredsson - Is he getting better or what? And he says post-game that he didn't have a good game. He's good in all three zones, scores the dagger goal tonight. I'm actually worried about when this guy hangs them up BECAUSE HE IS STILL USUALLY OUR BEST FORWARD.

Methot - How the hell did we get this guy for Foligno? Big, strong, smart, mean. He makes me much more content to let Phillips ride off into the sunset.

Phillips - Playoff Phillips makes his big return. He started rushing the puck out of the zone in Game 4 and igniting the team to believe that they COULD come back. Very impressed.

Neil - I famously said "Write his name on the 4th line in permanent marker for his career." a long time ago. Most improved Senator. Heart of the Senators. He's smart, he knows when to engage and when to hang back. He dumps the puck into the zone better than anyone on the team. He plays good defence in the zone.

Pageau - PAGEAU PAGEAU PAGEAU. Even when he's not scoring hat-tricks he's a threat with his speed and his smarts. How can you fall in love with a guy so soon? It helps that his name lends itself so well to chanting.

Karlsson - I can only imagine how frustrated you are with your limitations. But you keep going out there, and you're singlehandedly making our offensive zone play immeasurably better. Scoring goals again? I forgot what that was like. He's also been pretty solid in the defensive zone. Once he gets his skating back, he'll be back to being a legend.

Gonchar - Saving something for the playoffs eh? Had that big streak, then sucked for awhile, then turned it on when it counts. Well done!

Cowen and Gryba - BEAST! BEAST BEAST BEAST! Montreal's forwards are going to have nightmares for days.

Michalek - We won the series, so you get a pass. Until the next series.

Conacher - In Paul we trust. The guy wants to do so well out there, with some patient coaching, he's a hell of a hockey player.

Zibanejad - AHLer, to 4th liner, to 3rd liner, to 2nd liner, to power forward extraordinaire. Imagine when he continues to grow. Ouch. Montreal may have Eller. We have our own beast in the making.

Silfverberg - Alfie Jr. Diving defensive plays, timely goal scoring. If he builds up his strength, he's going to be a terror. Loui Eriksson? Jere Lehtinen? Or something more? Who knows? All I know is I'm excited.

Condra - Glad to see him get rewarded for all of his hard work with some goals and points. He makes me miss Chris Kelly a lot less. Energizer bunny, a coach's dream. How often does he make a defensive mistake?

Smith - Plays tough minutes. Key face-offs. Makes life difficult for the Habs every shift that he plays.

Greening - Another big body to cause a ruckus. I admit, I wasn't all that impressed with him this series, but he screened Alfie's goal tonight so hopefully his big body can continue to contribute.

Rest of the Sens - You all pitched in at key times. A fight here, a defensive play there, a point here. The dressing room is tight and you can tell.

PAUL MACLEAN - IN PAUL WE TRUST. He is Yoda in walrus form.

Feels great. Best goaltending we've ever had and the grittiest team we've had. What a night.

The rest should do wonders for our team. Alfie and EK probably need a rest. Hope EK looks a little better in round 2. Hope the Isles force game 7, would love to face a tired Pens team if that's who we get. They're already sloooow, another half step slower would help tremendously as they're skilled as heck.

We're also starting to get into the territory where it's possible we see #19 again. Possible.

A couple of random positives:
I LOVE playoff Phillips. Dude is a rock back there.

I actually thought Michalek showed a hint of something tonight. Won a few puck battles and was pretty effective on the forecheck. Maybe a week off will be great for him too.

I said this in the Stanley Cup Playoffs section, but it bears repeating...


This series was so much more important for the Ottawa franchise than Montreal and it's not even close. From a competitive point of view, it was equal, as both teams wanted to win, I'm not going to argue that.

BUT, from a franchise perspective, its not even close. After years of embarrassment versus the Leafs, this was huge against your second closest geographical rival who still have many fans that live in the Ottawa area. Winning this was just massive for the franchise even though it was just the first round. Going 0 for 5 against another Canadian team would have been a disaster...

Pretty epic game to remember

What's funny is that I switched seats with the wife and Ottawa scored the big two goals in the 3rd. So when OT came back, the couple next to me, and the row behind me told me to sit in the same seat again.

Anderson is so good and our defense is tough enough I wonder if we can make a run of it like Anaheim in 2003.

Well, the Habs were the perfect opponent for us at this time.

They may be a good team, but we made them look bad.

Not sure how we'll do against a team with a hot goalie and/or a better and bigger overall defence.

Our PP still irks me. We scored some goals this series, but usually when the game was out of reach.

Well said (and amazing post too Nyquil and Quo).

Ottawa needed this so badly. Closing out a series like this with a killer instinct, beating a big rival, getting contributions all over the roster......never seen this from Ottawa before.

Still in shock. Still amazed.
Still can't breathe.
