    We all figured we'd just be watching other teams come playoff time...and here we sit matched up against the Habs.

    The West series don't interest me much outside of Vancouver/San Jose, but the East battles should all be dandies, other than Pitts/NYI.

    The East will be really interesting with the teams so close. Would love to see the Isles up end the Pens. HA HA!

    We'll need to see the official NHL schedule... lots of speculating going on. Two back to backs in the Sens/Habs series seems silly.

    If true, then that could mean game 6 in Ottawa is a Saturday night...but I'm looking a little too far ahead.

    They gotta also finish the playoffs in a very short Window

    Goota like the matchup for the Sens even though the series can go either way. Really looking forward to this one because it will be heated and both cities will be super into it. Def think the Sens can win this one.

    Love seeing Toronto having to play Boston, worst matchup possible for them.

    F'ing pumped, is all I can say. Biggest thing for us is Turris getting it going, and Silf/Z-Bad finding a way to pot some goals.

    Turris won't have the physical pounding he would have otherwise in basically any other series, so that's a good thing. Again, the Sens match up well against the Habs and hold the physical edge as well.

    Goaltending? I would say Sens.
    Defense? Sens
    Offense? Habs

    Hopefully the Sens can take this series in 5 or 6 but I would expect this one could go 7 no problem.

    Price has struggled since Emelin went down (2-5-0, 4.38, .851 in last 7 GPI), so hopefully that trend continues. Our defense will have to be top-notch, and there's no reason to expect otherwise.

    Phillips injury is believed to be his left knee. He's been our most durable player, so I wouldn't expect him to miss too much, if any time. He last had a knee injury in 2006 (left knee then too).

    If he can't go, Gryba and Wiercioch will both be in.
