Sens blow a late third period lead and lose in OT. Vermette with the hat trick. Guess former Oilers aren't the only one who burn their teams.

Seriously though what's wrong in Ottawa? 23rd overall this year. Isn't Paul MacLean supposed to be one the best coaches in the league? And they have Anderson, Spezza and Karlsson all healthy to boot.

I knew last year they were terrible and got incredibly lucky. Overrated depth. Really good goaltending. Their D corps isn't that good outside of Karlsson, who can't really play defence. I laughed when people were calling them a Cup contender this year, idiotic and homerrific Eastern media.

Their problem is that they've never been that great. They are in fact a middling team that was helped immeasurably by a godlike Karlsson, great goaltending and a bunch of overachievers.

"Godlike Karlsson"

People got to stop saying and believing stuff like this. He might as well be a forward. I'd take a good number of players over him, but I guess that also speaks to the quality of high end Dmen in the league currently.

I agree that Anderson made them look better than they were, but I didn't think they'd be this bad either. After us they have to be the most disappointing team in the NHL.

David Clarkson is one of the worst players in hockey. Great contract.

And of course this tool just scored the go ahead goal.

Dodged a bullet there. How the hell did this lumbering fool score 30 a few years ago?

On an unrelated note, the Islanders eneterd the third period up 3-1 and lose 5-3. Why can't we play this team now?

Flipped over the STL/CGY game and saw one of the best overtimes of the season. That dbag Backes threw his knee out on Stajan. Should be suspended, garbage play.

Less than 8 minutes into the game and it's 3-2 Wild.

What the hell's going on up there?

I guess game center is free for a bit. I guess it is just a couple minute preview.
