    GAME DAY #34: Senators @ Lightning - 5:00pm - Sunday, Dec 20 2015




    In the Tenth Game of Christmas my True Sens gave to me,
    Ten back a-skating
    Nine blocked shots
    Eight shots in the second (but they scored on *four* of 'em)
    Seven and 20 shots (in the first period alone)
    Six Give-aways
    FIVE POWER PLAAAAAYS!
    Four first period PIMs,
    Another three for Karlsson
    Two Hoffman goals
    And a loss to that team from Philly.


    (I should have quite after "FIVE POWER PLAYS")

    The Sens finish up the 12 Games of Christmas with two more games in Florida, starting with this late afternoon's game against the S-less Lightning. Please note the early start time of 5 PM. And pass it on to anyone you know, urging them to pass it on to yet more people. With any luck, the early start time will eventually get passed on to one of the Senators players, coaches or trainers and the team will actually start playing in the first period.

    The Bolts (hey! there's that 'S') are still without the services of Ondrej Palat, and have a number of players with bumps and bruises, as evidenced by the number of "maintenance" days taken yesterday. Both teams played Friday night, and both had to travel to get to Tampa after their game. The flight out of Ottawa was likely a bit more lively, as they came out on the right end of a 4-2 win against a very tough team in the Sharks. Tampa flew out of the other capital, Washington, after losing to the Caps. Stamkos, though, may have had a smile on his face as he finally scored a goal -- his first in nearly a dozen games.

    These are two crucial games with 4 very winnable points up there for the taking. The Sens sit in the first wildcard spot with Florida just a point back. New Jersey and Tampa are 2 and 3 points back of Florida for that last playoff spot so you know Tampa will want these two points every bit as much as the Sens do.

    Last time these two teams met was just 10 days ago, with Tampa skating away with a 4-1 win. Ceci scored the only goal for Ottawa as Bishop made 24 saves. Although the Sens have a pretty high shooting percentage, they need more than 25 shots on goal to put 3-4 past Big Ben.

    GO SENS GO!!!!

    We'll win this one for sure, so long as Cameron keeps the same lineup.

    Sens have dropped 5 of their last 6 on the road, scoring a single goal in four of those losses. Now would be a good time for them to bust of their road slump.

    Tampa was up 3-0 on the Capitals before falling 5-3. Washington scored 2 PPGs against the East's worst PK (le pire Peh-Kah du l'Est?)

    Michalek skated today. Wonder if he's going to be ready after the break.

    Well of course he will be -- after the break ... is healed.

    Sens just love destroying Brian Boyle. Horse Dung penalty call.

    Karlsson brings them within one. Ryan and Ceci are gone for the day. They are down to 4D. New defensive pairings:

    3-65
    46-65
    65-45

    Here comes that Karlsson hattrick.

    Florida wins in OT. Ottawa now in 2nd wildcard spot.

    Amazing how good Wiercioch when he's not Cestuck with Ceci.

    Wiercioch with Karlsson, like I've been recommending for a while.

    Now, if Ceci misses any time, I hope they don't go back to Borowiecki on his wrong side. Slide Wideman up to the second pairing and call up Kostka. Continue sitting Cowen.
