In Topic: Littlest fan's final joy sees Ottawa Senators off to Cup

30 May 2007 - 11:48 AM

Good call. Wonder if this gave him any extra motivation to score the first goal


It did... 1st Goal of the Finals like you pointed out...

Fish and Phliips probably the two best players on the ice other than Emery.

I noticed someone mentioned Elgin street... Search YouTube for Sens Mile to get an idea of what happened after the Sens clinched the Conference..

And above all else, the kind words in this thread regarding little Elgin shows just how great you Devils fans are and why I chose to hang out here all this time!!!

In Topic: OOT Scoreboard - Mon. 5/28

Ducks deserved the Win last night although I would have been thrilled had the Sens stolen that.

2:45 left in the third and we might have had a chance in OT against the Ducks who hold the best record in OT wins. I just think the Sens ran out of gas in the 3rd. You could tell at one point where the Sens were just standing still while the Ducks cycled in our end of the ice. There was no jump, no pressure no nothing except Emery trying to steal a game which is not his fortay.

The good is that Anaheim went 0 - 4 on their PP chances and we went 2 - 7. Once we get back to skating, I'm sure the Sens will do fine.

As for the physical play --- Alfie, Heater and Spezza did shy away from contact...That better change quick but I didn't think the hits from Anaheim were bone crunchers...Ya Corvo got sat down a couple of times, but a hit on Alfie which resulted in a turnover in the 3rd was simply a matter of Alfie not having any balance do to his legs being gone. I did notice Phillips putting on some nice hits and even putting Getzlaf down on a rush and I think Comrie, Schaeffer and Fisher had a good cycle going on the Ducks. Now if we can only get the other 3 lines going.

Game 2 will be better. At least we don't need to hear "Sens can't win a Game 2" in this series :evil:

Thanks for the kind words and well wishes !!!

Wow... I've been on the Sabre forums and the emotion is running WILD.

I think this series is going to be an all out trench war..."between the fans" of both clubs :blink:

Actually, most of the Sabre fans are cool with me...but it seems every board I visit, a fight breaks out over the Neil hit on Drury and then the aftermath. Peters...Emery... You know ;)

Watch the series if you can....I've a feeling bodies will be flying everywhere in this one. The teams really have a dislike for each other.

Thanks all. I don't know... I look and listen to everything Buffalo related and I see the Sens of years past.

Our seasons this year are almost a 100% reversal and the Sabres are now in a position where the Sens have been before...looking to Win something that has been a setback in the past.

This won't be a run and gun series as some might expect. The Sens Defense has been incredible through two rounds and I'm sorry...I can't get past the fact the Sabres had some trouble with the 6th and 8th seeds despite moving on in each series. Our top line is on fire where as Ruff is still trying to get guys going (Vanek, Afiniogenov) Drury is a consistent player and deserves the C, although I am still suspicious of Briere's comittment to the Sabres and may well be looking forward to the big payday in the offseason.

I think as well that the Sens are in the Sabres heads because of the Neil hit on Drury not so long ago. While they chase him around the Ice, ala Avery...Our guys will be throwing lot's of rubber towars Miller...who looked pretty tired after yesterdays game. So who knows...

Either way...it's going to be a tough series for both clubs. The Sens have been chomping at the bit since last year when the Sabres caught us by surprise with their speed and talent. That won't be the case this time around.

Sens in 6.

In Topic: Who will win the cup now!

I'm pretty sure the Ducks will be coming out of the West. I picked them to win the cup...but now....
I think the Sens will get past Buffalo setting up a Ducks/Sens final. At that point...anything can happen but I can't ignore the D on the Ducks.
