Alfredsson just got a penalty for hooking two hundred and seventy five pound Todd Bertuzzi with one hand.

Man, Hasek looks awful so far tonight. And there are far too many penalties, especially taken by the players we need on the penalty kill (Alfredsson, Chara, and Fisher).

This is the same thing that happened the last time we were in Vancouver. Penalties galore, more for Vancouver.

Yeah, it's a call fest.

Players are going to start exaggerating reactions to those little tugs and pulls.

I think its an exciting game so far, very back and forth (with the obvious horrible hooking calls)

Ottawa is an amazing transitional team.

It doesnt matter too much if players exaggerate, because your stick shouldnt be there in the first place. Gonna be a hard one to break

boring

Boring period. Why isn't Emery playing? Hasek should be playing against kiprusoff.

Ottawa didn't look good or bad but the refs will ruin this overhyped game anyway. I think we're giong to a shootout and would be disappointed if the Sens lost to vancouver - we're much better even with out Havlat and Redden although Havlat would have murdered them tonight

boring?

sounds like you're just bitter.

Alfredsson and Heatley are god damn scary. I feel lucky to be winning at this point.

Ottawa's getting to the net, but they're not getting the shots on net.

We've fanned on a few good chances so far, which means their holding on to their sticks too tight.

Alfie looks like he wants to start something out there, so once he calms down, I'm looking to him to have a big period.

Hasek has been roaming more and more of late. It was going to cost him sooner or later and it finally did.

this is looking like one of those games where we could have Lalime in nets and it wouldnt change a thing. We are giving up the first shot and thats it, so as long as they can limit the powerplays, we should be alright. I am loving the speed of the game, as long as they keep it up.

Great first period as far as energy levels

ps Bochenski looks like he doesnt want to leave

Alfredsson one handed stretched hook was ridiculous. I'd even take away Naslunds trip on Heatley. Players are starting to exaggerate and its an embarrassment. I think John Garrett is the only one who doesn't know that every single penalty (on both sides) was helped out by the "acting". He's calling them like they are pure infractions.


Even though Ottawa is ranked miles ahead on the Canucks on the powerplay, I'd rather see 60 minutes of 5 on 5. Powerplay are too arcade-ish for me.


Anxiously awaiting the Brookbank/McGrattan tilt-a-whirl.

yeah, SensGuy already told me. I've got him on ignore.


This game has me so jittery. I haven't felt like this during a game since 2004.

Yeah, there's been a lot of talk all week.

When you think about it, it's pretty silly. One game out of 82 has you thinking its the playoffs.

He took a couple of silly penalties too.

The whole team is going to have to play a lot more disciplined.

It's like we've gone back in time to October.

On the Vancouver side, Bert looks like he wants to hit people, and I like Richard Park.

Boring? I can find lots of things to call this game and boring would be the opposite of most of them.

I'm a fan of neither team, and I enjoyed the first period very much. Looking forward to the rest of it.

He has done that his whole career. Considering his the greatest goaltender of All-Time (my honest opinion), I have trouble telling the old man what to to and what not to.

If its worked this far, it'll probably work again. I can remember a few chances this year where he barrelled out to the blueline and broke up plays. Can't work all the time.

I think that his way of getting into the game. Probably the same feeling as drinking 3 pots of coffee in under 12 minutes.

They were pure infractions as the rules seem to have been defined. Regardless of the acting. The stick touched him. Zero tolerance. The refs are calling it right. We cant blame them.

I found that Ottawa was looking for the ideal pass/play rather than keeping things simplistic in the offensive zone. They really need to just get the pucks on the net and continue to drive to the blue paint rather than looking for the cross-crease pass, or the awe-inspiring passing play.

Yeah, they've got to just shoot shoot shoot and go for rebounds.

When that happens, the ice will open up for more of the fancy stuff.
