There needs to be a new rule that Pitts has to play Fleury...cause it's just not fair when they don't

Ottawa just does not have the talent without Spezza and will still be short in that department with him. Pittsburgh's forwards have been tremendous thus far and Anderson has been shaky as well. Sweep?

As i said earlier Anderson is not an elite goalie like Henrik or Quick. So far he has been playing as bad as Nabokov

Lehner is keeping them in it. Just wish the Sens had more patience moving the puck up ice. Stop it with the long bomb passes. Creates too much a gap between the D and forwards.

Wow, Pittsburghs power play doesn't look very powerful at all.
Very lazy

Very lazy and sloppy third. It's like they were skating at half speed throughout

Lehner's confidence is scary right now. I wonder if the Sens start him in game 3. Oh well, I won't complain too much about a 2-0 series lead though.

I guess you didn't watch the Tor-Bos series? or the Bos-Phi in 2010? Even when you are down 3-0 or 3-1, its not over.

Especially the Pens' last powerplay. You could see they weren't really that interested in scoring, mostly they just wanted to run down the clock.

A hole's a hole. Doesn't mean it's over though... crazier things have happened.

I'll say it again - Gotta feel for EK. No matter how far the Sens go, he has a long way to strengthen the Achilles back up. It's just what the injury is all about. You have to feel for him because mentally he is ready but his strength just isn't there. His skating is affected badly.

EK should sit. He doesn't have the leg/foot strength.

I wonder if Spezza plays, will he be at 100 with the back? Even if these guys come back, they are not at 100% so some guy has to step up. I think Neil has been great... he's trying and hitting guys clean. Where's the rest of the Sens? Where's Turris? Only 1 shot? Silfverberg? No shots? Sorry to say it, but Alfredsson has to do more, too. The Sens' transition game is pretty awful. They counter but last less than a minute in the Pens zone if that. They have no response for when the Penguins are setting up in their zone and they are being too careless with the checking. Can't build up any momentum, offensively, if they're getting called for stupid infractions.

I'd start Lehner and maybe that sparks them. They did seem to play better with the goalie switch. Also, the Sens have to attack the Pittsburgh defence more but I already mentioned how the Sens forwards have to step up. Maybe the home crowd will get them going?

Yup as a Pens fan, all the Karlsson blasting is pretty brutal. Was it insane when people said he was the best player in the NHL over Sid, yes, but to massively ridicule him in general for his play right now and downplay what he did last year when he was healthy is ridiculous. He obv isn't back in form and its not fair to compare him to his normal self when most guys wouldn't even be playing yet. Do I think he can get better defensively in general, yes, and is he a liability in many ways right now, yes, but he obviously is also not himself right now so it's ridiculous to discuss his Norris credentials last year or his general ability right now

So who starts game 3 for Ottawa? Lehner was surprisingly very solid.

Sens are in a hole, but never over until you lose at home. It's a bad position to be at down 2-0, but it won't be too big of a hole until it's 3-0.

Sens played well today, Anderson played Shaky, but the Sens were able to battle back. Definitely got some scoring chances, and looked a lot better today.

Lehner should start game 3. Gotta play the hot hand, even if Anderson got us her. Lehner played very in the regular season, and he has the talent to be very good.

Lehner was great but I'd think you go back to Anderson.
