Special teams (PP PK) are going to be a big factor in this series. The Sens special teams have sucked for more than a few weeks, if not months........... while Boston is much better in both.

Interesting thing I just heard ........... the Bruins have only scored on even strength goal on the Senators this season, and that one goal was back last fall.

Read one feature that stressed the idea that the Bruins just don't have enough speed to press Ottawa in their own end. I did not see it that way during the games. I think the series is going to be very close

“Speed is an issue for the Bruins and they have one physical guy in (David) Backes,” the insider said.

“The key for Ottawa is the 1-3-1 they play. All of Ottawa’s offence against the Bruins, when I watched, was off turnovers in the neutral zone. The game is going to be won by that 1-3-1 by the Senators and the Bruins have to find a way to break it and get a forecheck.

“The problem for Boston is they don’t have a lot of speed so that system makes it tough on them.”

Jeez, the ottawa media must be a bigger joke than the Toronto media. How do they suppose a team with no speed or toughness even makes the playoffs.

also, Chara is a wuss, isn't he? that Adam McQuaide guy too.

Reality - the Bruins have SOME speed, and may not be the nasty team they used to be, but have a fair bit of toughness (easily more than the senaturds)

Are you at least willing to admit that you aggressively want to tickle Glucker's butthole with your tongue. He won't admit he want's to tickle yours, but the back and forth action makes it pretty clear.

Here is the truth, whether Sens fans will admit it or not...

I do not believe one single Leafs fan would trade our Roster + Prospects + Management + Coaching + Ownership for the Sens equivalent.

The majority of Sens fans probably would trade situations in a heartbeat.

It boils down to Matthews + Marner + Nylander + Coaching + Ownership >>>>> Karlsson + Chabot.

Everything else is superfluous.

The ones who cry the loudest about it, would be the first ones in line to swap "situations".

Not $$

Something painful.....changing your profile pic or location or something like that.

If I win you have a send pic (can't be an insulting one) for the entire offseason.......ill do the same with a leafs pic

Why are you guys bothering? This is an obvious alt account. I don't know about you guys, but I've never seen it before. It's probably not even a senaturds fan. If he/she/it loses this bet, it'll disappear again, and it will make no difference whatsoever what his account looks like.

Was there something where the Flyers were mocking the way they played a few years back. Like half the game nothing happened?

Next coach in line for the always if Babcock said no. Rookies wouldn't have been as entertaining.

I gotta say, with a goal in this series, I feel the Sens have surpassed expectations from all around the hockey world.

Nobody in my pool picked a single Ottawa player

I built out an algorithm in excel that took playoff probabilities into account from two different sources, as well as the team's record in the final 20 games, and the first senator to show up was Karlsson at #77
