(The "Desert Sun" edition)
The Sens try to extend their longest winning streak of the season (which, really, isn't saying much) to 5 games as they face some tired Desert Dogs in Arizona. The Coyotes played a full 60 minute game plus 4:20 of OT before coming off the ice with the win over the visiting Flames. OEL had the winner in the extra period to give head coach Tippet his 500th win. Meanwhile, the Sens got to Glendale early Wednesday morning, flying out after their win over the Colorado Avalanche, and have been enjoying a few days off under the warm desert sun.
The last time these two teams me, Mikkel Boedker's hat-trick paced Arizona to a 4-1 win at the CTC. If you recall, that was the game in which Zbynek Michalek drilled Lazar head-first into the boards. Lazar ended playing under 5 minutes that game, and missed the next three; meanwhile Michalek didn't get so much as a penalty on the play. Two games later Zetterberg broke Pageau's nose with a blatant flying elbow to the head, receiving nothing for his efforts, other than a first star of the next game, also against the Senators. We all remember the "vicious" hit Stone put on Ferraro that resulted in Stone missing 2 games and his mojo.
So, that's that. The Sens face another tired opponent and should have more than a little chip on their shoulder as incentive. Milan, I don't care if he's your brother, Lazar is your linemate. Do the right thing. Mom will eventually forgive you.
GO SENS GO!!!
