The Sens are currently 17th place in the nhl using baseball style pct. Caps are ahead of us because of games in hand.
Last game we chased Kolzig, only to give up 4 goals. That was the game when Ovechkin said the Sens mocked him after getting up. Ya right. Some good head games from OV.
Tough time to face them though. Missing Redden and Alfie, Volchenkov banged up, winning some maybe we didnt deserve? Tonight would be the night to bet against the Sens I think. Just the odds, they're so due. If i could bring myself to bet against the Sens, tonight would be the night i'd do it.
It's fun to look back at Chris Phillips' career. Around 10 years ago he was playing right wing for the Ottawa Senators. You couldn't have traded him for a 3rd round pick. I remember going to a game and as soon as he touched the puck he'd get booed. Fans would yell "Phillips You Suck" after pretty much every shift. How the times change as confidence builds.
Now he's a solid NHL veteran defensemen, and looks like it, as he gets the "C" sewn on his chest.
I've got some bad news. I mean really horrible news.
Glen Healy is working the game tonight.
I know, its bad.
At least TSN has good camera views
These next three games are absolute must wins for Ottawa. Next week will be the true test to see what this tema is made of.
Next week: Detroit, Nashville, Buffalo
It would be awsome if we ran the table in those 3 games, I think we'll beat Nashville, not sure about the other two games. Dom might be a wall agasint us because he offered to play for cheap and we still let him go (thats gotta hurt) and we beat Buffalo 2 times in a row, theyre going to come out HARD.
