"It's tough. We're struggling," said forward Jason Spezza. "We're in other teams' buildings and things aren't going our way. ... It hasn't been a fun trip."

I just don't see Ottawa winning this game.

Who knows, they might surprise me.

I'm fully expecting a loss, but I am really hoping I see a solid effort and the team works hard all game. If they do that than they may just outwork the Bruins and maybe could steal this game. IF they can take this one, that could go a long way in boosting their confidence coming home.

Either way, should be a good game. Boston is so damn exciting to watch.

I'm not sure if it's too early to start that or not, but something just feels right about it.

I would not be surprised to see the Sens beat the Bruins this game. I predict 3-2 Sens win... in OT. Physical match, at least two fights, Fisher, Alfie, and Vermette score in this one.

Vermette with the OT winner.


*I think positive*

7-1? Ottawa won't even score a goal.

8-0 Bruins.

This is going to be a loss to finish the road trip. Boston just got shut out and are probably not very happy about losing 2 games in a row.

The only chance we have is if Fernandez starts. Not because he sucks, but because Thomas grows 8 feet and gains 2000 pounds when he plays the Senators.

Doesn't matter the out come, but here's hoping we don't mail it in.

I'm torn on this game. Part of me wants to see the Sens put in a solid effort and compete with the Bruins.

The other part of me wants to see this team get completely hammered by the Bruins so that some much-needed changes could be made, especially rebuilding for next season and beyond.

As bad as it sounds, I hope we lose. This season is over. With a top 3 pick this year, we'll be back on top next season.

He was rushed back from his shoulder injury, and then reinjuerd it. I wonder if it's the same one he had surgery on, hmm.

Because all of last year's lottery teams are pillars of success this year, right?
