  1. 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!!!
  2. 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
  3. 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 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.
  4. 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 ge
  5. 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.
  6. I've been here since 03...What makes you think I won't be looking in from time to time Seriously, You folks have been great. I know some folks like to trolll, I'm not like that. I prefer to converse in a mature manner.... That's why I've only got about 60 posts to my name here.
  7. Playing the Devils always makes me nervous and this series was no exception. Close games each and every one of them. We win a Series, You Win a Series, We Win...I'm sure it won't be long before we are at battle in the post season again.
  8. McRae is the type of writer who's soul purpose is to invoke reaction. There is rarely anything factual about his articles...Hell the guy writes constantly about Elvis living outside of the City to give you an idea. occasionally, he does write some really intersting stuff based on fact or written from the heart...but mostly just tries to piss people off. I usually skip past anything with his name attached to it.
  9. Agreed, the vast majority of fans everywhere respect and probably even sign or hum along to the Anthems of both countries. I know I like singing your Anthem, Probably because I no longer know the words to my own with the French stuffed into it....but there are always A-holes that ruin it for both sides. I don't recall hearing it on the broadcast so it must have only been a few if it did in fact occur.
  10. And if the skate were on the other foot.... I could only imagine the "Oh Canada" conspiracy remarks coming out of the US cities everywhere... Murray has a point...If video review is still a useless way to determine if goals are good or not, and that "human error" is taken into account, then get rid of the process alltogether. I mean isn't that the exact reason the Video review was brought in to begin with? To review goals that Refs may have missed, or to disallow them based on kicking motions that the Refs didn't see to start with? It seems to be a double standard that we as fans bitch ab
  11. That was a fun game to watch. Both teams did not disappoint and despite a brain fart or two on either side of the puck, the Sens/Devils came out ready to play Game 2 in the style we are all used to seeing. How the Sens let Brylin get that shot off with .2 seconds left I'll never know, but give credit where credit is do. Brylin was determined to get that shot. After the first, I think the Sens started to carry the play and took that with them into the 4th OT. Great Saves by both Goaltenders in this one, resiliancy shown by the Sens, determination not to lose by the Devils, and your typical
  12. Is anybody else confident the ice will be good tonight? If the puck starts bouncing around...anything can happen and usually does. The Leafs were great at those games
  13. Hey Stepside!! Nice to have some more familiar colours over here!! SH, I met one of the members from this site in 03 when he drove up for game 5 as well. Great guy.. I saw the Devils Jersey and walked over to say hello. He posted about his trip on this board but I'm too lazy to search the archives for it. We have a few loads of folks driving down to the CA tomorrow...sure wish I could join them.
  14. Well since we are opening history books here.... The Sens have never won a game 2 in any Series.... EVER
  15. I think it's something that comes with "Message Board" maturity. And I don't mean that in a negative way. SF101's only flaw I can see is he/she is defending every statement made when in fact much of what got posted in response should have just been taken with a grain of salt or explained in a way that doesn't provoke. (example and NIC: Devils Rose Colored Glasses) Other than that... nothing at all posted is unexpected when it comes to this glorious time of year called the Playoffs.
  16. I never pack it in or celebrate a Series until that final horn sounds on the series clinching game. As a Sens fan...I consider myself to be cautiously optimistic this year. That said...Every board I visit has it's share of posters that have higher ups and downs on this roller coaster ride called the playoffs and I certainly don't see that being any different here nor do I revel in reading those posts because once again, I am a Sens fan and I know exactly what it's like.
  17. I think it's fair to say both teams played great for 1 period each and then matched each other's play in the 3rd. The Sens looked great in the First then faded until Reddens Goal in the 3rd and then they did what they could to contain the Devils. I liked the fact the Sens did not panic...they just kept their composure which is something they have done well since Christmas. The Devils looked good in the second, but the 1st period cost them the game. The 3rd pretty much balanced out I thought. I knew that Tampa had scored on Brodeur glove side a couple of times, but 5 goals glove side on Brodeur
  18. Thank God it's game day finally. Here's to a terrific series which I'm sure will have us all on the roller coaster ride throughout. This is the rubber match series between our clubs...Hopefully this time around the Sens wrap her up in 6. As for tonight, I'm going with a Devils win because I think the 7 days off will hurt the Sens.
  19. I knew Allan.. He dated my Sister for a few years in Brantford up until he started playing for the Leafs....Then his head got bigger than the rest of him. I have a hard time picturing a 5-hole on him...He was kind of short to start with

    Ottawa feared??

    Ottawa can shoot all day long from the perimiter...but they need to get in front of Marty to make it tougher and get some dirty goals. The only plus I can see for the Sens...is Heatley's office is just to the Left (Glove Side) of Brodeur in Net and the Bolts seemed to have some good success from there. If Not, then Alfie will be parked on the other side however the chance of a cross-crease pass getting thru would be tough based on how the Devils get their sticks in the lane.
  21. You Don't have Redden on the list
