A Minor Setback


I don't have much time to write anything lengthy after getting back from the game tonight, but it should be said that no one should be freaking out over the sudden-death loss to the Florida Panthers.

Ottawa played a strong game against an equally fired up Florida squad and hit a few posts while being the recipient of some bad calls (and more importantly, some non-calls in the third period).

Losing games you should have won is all just part of a long season. I saw nothing in their game that represented a step backwards but just a few bad bounces that made the difference.

Daniel Alfredsson in particular played an inspired game and the Big 3 looked dangerous all night. It was also nice to see Anton Volchenkov laying a couple of major hits, something that he has gotten away from in the last year or so.

But damn, that Jay Bouwmeester would sure look good in black and red...

Bouwmeester's effort made it look like he was auditioning for Ottawa.

Maybe he would want to stay here if traded to the Senators.

hopefully! he played in the western hockey league and would probably appreciate playing hockey in Canada again.

I want to give credit to Stuntman Stu, the Sens p.a. announcer, for being innovative with regards to the way he announces Sens' goals. I think people should be given credit when they make efforts to find a better way to do things.

That being said, I'm just not feelin' it. I feel like I'm at a 10-year olds birthday party at the Ronald McDonald Caboose, rather than a hockey game.

Stu did an amazing job at calling the goals last year and the year before. I wish that he would revert back to that style.
