From my point of view, the Sens/Devils series nearly killed me. This little old lady had her heart in her mouth as I am sure many of you did. It was a great battle. One I have not seen in many many years. And the best part of it all is that it was not dirty and there were no idiotic attempts to injure. Classy teams on both sides I say.

I am sorry my team lost, but your team won it through sheer hard work and determination. But watch out next year. Our boys have learned a lesson that they have to play EVERY game.

In the meantime, I am rooting for the Devils. Your team has my respect.

Someone explain to me how that wasn't interference.....the first player to the rebound takes two hacks at it, is then PHYSICALLY touching Marty IN THE CREASE (with out a d-man on him) and then Varada knocks the rebound in while this is occurring.

Explain this....PLEASE.

Ottawa deserves the win...but not this way.


Once the puck is in the crease, the opposing player can go into the crease. It is only called goaltender interference if the player arrives in the crease and obstructs the goalie BEFORE the puck crosses the crease line.

That did not happen. clearly the puck was in the crease first and therefore Brodeur loses crease protection. Where was the defense that allowed him to stay in there unmolested. From my point of view, they messed up. Big time. And it cost the game. (Or again from my point of view, they messed up and it WON the game). ;)

I'll be there in the arena Friday night. As with all of you, I will be sitting on the edge of my seat. It has been a great series guys. May the better team win.

How do you guys feels about this?.......

With all due respect Loyal Sens fan ( I genuinely dont mean this to come out harsh so please read it as that.),but what exactly did you expect people in this forum to say? What reaction were you hoping to get?

I guess I was hoping for an acknowledgement that the behavior should not be tolerated anywhere. I was hoping people of all stripes would stand up and say "I will not permit it in my presence". Perhaps I hope too much.

It does not happen "in every sport and in every venue all over the world" . It happens when people stand by and let it happen. The time to put a stop to this behaviour is as it starts. If you see it starting, it is time as an adult member of society to quell it. To remind the perpetrators that this is a sporting event, not a political platform. And that visitors should be afforded the same respect in the arena that you would give them at home.

I know I am one of the first in my section to "talk" to fellow SENS or other fans who go over the line. I just do not understand why so many others just sit there an let it get totally out of control. We have the power to make our communities a better place. All it takes is the guts to stand up and say "This is not right". "this behaviour is unacceptable". You would be surprised at how effective those early preemptive comments can be. Whether it be in a small crowd or a big one.

I guess I am just an idealist.

Peace man.

I am glad you enjoyed yourself. We always enjoy seeing visitors from out of town at our arena. The love of the game is paramount, and the fact that you travelled that far to see your team shows great support.

Now that you have done it once, you will find yourself saving for the next trip. And then the next one. I have been to almost every arena in the NHL and make a point of getting to at least a couple of out of town games every year. Those mini vacations are highlight reels in my life for sure.

So come back any time friend. Your type of fan is appreciated no matter where you come from or who you are cheering for eh?
