    Not really. Don't see them even hitting in the last two games.

    Except for taking out Alfredsson and almost taking out Spezza, everything's been just dandy.

    That's not taking liberties. Spezza has only himself to blame on that hit, and Hagelin's hit was a suspendable act and he got his punishment. If you think he's going out their to hurt people and take liberties, then you're mistaken. It's a hit, he got his elbow up, things happen.

    The Rangers have been fairly soft this series and other than Boyle on Karlsson in Game 1, I don't see them doing anything to any of our players to throw them off their game. Guys like Callahan etc. have died since Game 1.

    It definitely was Spezza's fault, I agree there.

    If Gaborik is hurting, we need to make sure he continues to hurt is all she meant I think - and I agree. Hit him over and over.

    On a sidenote, Joy automatically becomes the best reporter covering the Sens since Bingo's season ended and she came up to Ottawa. Best call-up Ottawa made all year.

    The 2nd tweet about frustration is 100% true. And it's what we all feel at times when watching the games.

    Joy's not doing too well right now. Her recent tweets (as @puckjoy, not @PSBJoy) are a bit worrisome.

    Check out her timeline. She's sitting at the CanadianTire in Kanata and sounds like the news is not good. She's got no money, has a cold and I think there are other issues back home.

    I'd rather the Rags keep Gaborik in the lineup. He hasn't done much..and while he could easily change a game in a second, he's been relatively quiet.

    I'd rather the Rags keep Gaborik in the lineup. He hasn't done much..and while he could easily change a game in a second, he's been relatively quiet.

    He was dancing around in G1, but I must admit I didn't notice him in G3 until he got tripped up (Cowen?) into the end-boards and got up very slowly. He's hurting for sure. Amazing he's lasted as long as he has given his history. We need him to "limp along" for a couple more games.

    Speaking of liming along what the heck is wrong with Zack Smith? A couple of times he did a fly-by when he could have easily finished his check. He reminds me of when Fisher could not "initiate contact". I like Smith but if he's not banging and crashing out there then he's not very useful. We already have enough no-hitters in the lineup (Kuba, Spezza, Butler, Karlsson) and we are missing Alfie. We need Klinkhammer in there if Smith is hurting.

    Yeah, haven't noticed Smith too much either, now that you mention it. I think he's been nursing an injury or two for a while, but you're right. Step up and start dropping some Rags.

    So with Silf leaving Sweden on Sunday to come here, I don't think there's any way he plays in game 6. Game 7, if needed, is on Thursday.

    Don't think there is any way he plays unless there is a serious issue in the top 6. You don't bump guys out that have been around all year so someone who has never met 1/2 the team can play.
