    GAME DAY #73: Canadiens @ Senators - 7:00 pm - Saturday, March 19 2016




    Another 34 shots on goal, another powerplay goal allowed, another four futile powerplays -- all leading to another loss. Chiasson with 2/3 of a Gordie Howe hat-trick couldn't buy an assist. I only got to listen to the game while drivign back from Montreal, but at least according to Dean and Gordie Smith was "too sick to play". Yet Puempel just sits and watches this disaster? What the hell is he going to learn from this?

    4 weeks to the Draft Lottery.

    Looks like Hammond will be in against the Habs. Subban still out with his neck microfracture. Price still out with his knee microfracture. Therrien still in with his brain microfracture.

    Sens draft lottery still at 3.5%. Habs are at 5%. Leafs are at 20%, which is 1 in 5 odds, which is still slightly better than their odds were in winning the Stanley Cup back when there were only 6 teams.

    Despite the shortcomings of our play 5on5, I can't help but think we'd be in a playoff spot if our special teams were just half decent. A mediocre special teams would be good enough.

    Puemps really has to show he can turn it into something or else he won't hang around long and follow the likes of Prince.

    Bahaha, I'm not watching, but there's been 3 short handed goals apparently by the Sens.

    Watched the whole thing live (although I was in the kitchen for the Methot and Chiasson goals so saw those in replays only).

    That was not an NHL-level lineup. Emelin is a 3rd pairing D-man to begin with, and he was promoted to the top pairing (not sure of ice time, but he was playing with Markov) and on his wrong side, to boot.

    Eller, on the Pageau goal, was watching Stone carrying the puck; as were Plekanec and Markov. By the time he realized the Sens had more than one forward on the ice Pageau was too far ahead of him to catch up.

    Lazar's goal was a beauty, top shelf blocker side (guess that's the book on Scrivens).

    Methot's goal, still not sure how it went it. It's not like he banked it in the conventional way off the goalie's butt, skate or back. He wasn't quite at the post and the puck went between the post and his skate, through his legs, then hit something (his left pad? his stick?) and back into the goal. Watch a replay because I'm sure by description doesn't give it justice. It was an awful goal to give up.

    Chiasson's was not pretty but it was a breakaway, I guess, after Markov fluffed it at the blueline. Still, that was a stoppable shot.

    Zibanejad's was a bad giveaway and good hand-eye coordination on Mika's part to tip it with the shaft of his stick mid-air. Not much Scrivens could do on that one.

    So two stoppable pucks, two or three bad defensive plays. You'd think the Sens were just opportunistic but they did manage 44 shots on goal.

    The Habs have *never* given up 3 shorties in the same game. Ever!

    Ya know, it's just one game and all, and the Habs *are* missing three regular D-men, but apart from the 3 shorties last night the Sens were already leading the NHL. Meanwhile the penalty kill itself is 29th in the league.

    Just spitballin' here, but maybe those two are related?
