In the Seventh Game of Christmas my True Sens gave to me,
Seven and twenty shots (first period)
FIVE POWER PLAAAAAYS!
Four first period PIMs,
Another three for Karlsson
Two Hoffman goals
And a loss to that team from Philly.
Two straight regulation losses finds the Senators in the first wildcard spot with 5 teams all within 5 points looking to knock them further down the hill: Jersey is 1 back, Pittsburgh is 2 back but with 2 games in hand, then Florida, Tampa and Philly at 3, 4 and 5 points back, respectively. These are desperate times. And with the LA Kings shuffling into town, seething from an OT loss in Buffalo, the desperation level rises. If the Sens can match their own "desperation level" to that of the situation, we could have quite a game. If not, we could be out of that wildcard spot Tuesday night.
On the other hand, we are tied in points with Boston for 3rd in the Atlantic (although they have 2 games in hand). Boston is hosting the Oilers. So we could be out of that wildcard spot tonight, too.
GO SENS GO!!!
(also Go Oilers)
