I am on the road but had to pull my laptop out to give you serious kudos CanadianHockey fantastic GDT and so happy to see a Game of Thrones theme, hope it's the playoff theme for the Senators. Job very well done my lord I look forward to a Lannister beat down....Even if they do always pay their debts. 2CHHHAAAIIINNNZZ
For those wondering about the theme choices, Game of Thrones starts up tomorrow, and the playoff implications of games like this (Sens regulation win gives us a four point cushion, but a regulation loss puts us tied for points with the Leafs) worked well with the Winter is Coming theme in GoT.
Ottawa is House Stark because a) we're the northernmost market (aside from perhaps Edmonton), b) we're generally seen as the protagonists; the underdogs that many are pulling for, c) the injuries parallel the deaths and misfortunes that hit the Starks hard.
Toronto as House Lannister because a) the Leafs suit well with the Lannister's propensity for being dominant economic players, b) King Joffrey... and Joffrey Lupul. Both are sadists, evidenced in multiple gifs of Lupul tugging at his Leafs logo at the all star game like he was proud of it or something c) the sense of entitlement and elitism in Leafs nation parallels the sense of entitlement and elitism of House Lannister, d) they have a lot of haters.
Leaf fans, don't take this post seriously, and Sens fans, I didn't actually put this amount of thought into the GDT, I'm just good at pulling **** out of my ass.
PP to PK ratio will look worse for us than it actually is because we score a lot on the PP (so we don't get to the full 2 minutes on a lot of our PPs) and we usually kill the full 2 minutes (so we usually get the full 2 minutes for our PKs).
