Except we won't have Bob Cole calling the play by play. Instead we get Paul Romanuk with Garry Galley providing the color commentary.
Senators are the overwhelming underdog against an Original Six American team. Where have we heard this before? A few analysts are extending us the courtesy of predicting Rangers in 7. Most aren't that kind. Never mind that New York was thoroughly outplayed by Montreal and needed an unsustainable .947 SV% from Lundqvist to advance. Never mind that their leading scorer has 4 points, whereas Brassard is second only to Malkin. Never mind that Kreider has been nearly invisible. Never mind that Boro is still out. Never mind that Vigneault took over when Vancouver fired Crawford.
Just never mind.
Boro still out, and Wideman scratched, giving is a third pairing of Claesson-Harpur. Pyatt says he's ready to go, so Wingels likely to be scratched. No other changes expected.
Go Sens Go!!!
