- Sens played very well from the first puck drop (despite giving up a goal in the first two minutes); this was unexpected given the bye week.
- The power play generated scoring chances.
- The game was a sellout (allegedly).
- Chabot is really good.
Here are some positives for tonight's game:
- Oilers also played last night, their game went to overtime, then they had to travel from NJ.
- They won, we lost, and EV says teams always split back to back games.
Ryan was a late scratch yesterday, and from what Boucher said it sounds like he was a healthy scratch. Maybe he missed a team meeting or something like that. I expect a good game from him tonight. Lazar had a couple shifts that reminded me why we were all excited about him two years ago. Could he be finally coming around? Don't forget he missed all of camp with mono, and lost a foot race to Borowiecki last Friday. Alfie, what do you say? "Probably not."
Go Sens go!!!
