No last game was, Neil and Alfie seemed to be the only guys to get the memo.
At 6-2 Neil was on the ice, talked to all the guys and Stache was animated on the bench. Before dropping the puck, the refs went and talked to Neil then put him in the box on a flimsy call, then started calling a bunch of chicken**** stuff. The Pens simply played away from the boards, and avoided contact at almost all costs.
Could see that collapse coming from here to Montreal last game. The boys just couldn't or wouldn't skate with the Pens. Be it a huge breakdown or whatever I also had a bad feeling ounce we tried to sit on a 1 goal lead???
Tonight not so much of a bad feeling and I don't know why? I think it's because the Sen's will be loose and the Pens will wanna close this one out but as the game moves all along and were still staying with them stride for stride, we'll be ok. Call me dreamer but I see the Sen's stealing this one!!
Go Ottawa go!!
If we by some miracle win this game, I'm flying out to Ottawa to watch Alfie live once more.
That's good Karma!
All season when the Sens have been written off they have come through - no chance agains the Caps that hadn't lost something like 11 in a row, no chance against the Bruins at home and had won every game all season.
This one is the most extreme, the game pre-determined by everyone, the media has conceded the game to the Pens, Pen fans say they will be pissed if it has to go to Sunday to close it out. Seems about right for these guys.
I have been wrong about pretty much every game this series, but I'll give it one more try and predict the Sens will win it and bring the series back for another home game. I have lots on beer on hand in case I'm wrong.
