Pens are injured and using their backup goalie..Should be an easy series for the Sens
- senstroll


You don't want to be that guy who won't admit when a team has played well.

The Sens have really elevated their game and are playing a stifling system that everyone is buying in to. Good systems, and hard work beat good teams. The Sens are proving that.

but, unfortunately, an honest look at what happened pretty much boils down to

Boston was decimated by injury
Pittsburgh is decimated by injury
Ottawa got every imaginable break in the Rangers series, especially Lundqvist poopting the bed. If Lundqvist does that against Montreal, we are watching Habs/Pens right now.

So you kinda have to be that guy who isn't giving them credit.

It also means that this is their year. If everything continues to break the way they need it to, they could win a cup. They have as good a chance as anyone else.

EVERY team that ever wins a cup has a lot of luck on their side. The Sens are no different.

I don't give them much credit for the Boston win. It shouldn't have even been close games, with the players Boston was missing. All credit on the Rangers win though. Rangers were near full strength. Congrats, they beat a better team.

I think the Pens are significantly better, even with them being so banged up though. They're a championship caliber team. Championship teams can lose a player or two, and still pull through.

I'm pretty confident they will as well.

they're seriously banged up. Most of their top 6 outside of Crosby, Malkin, Kessel. And their number 1 dman.

But I still think they win. the turds are past the likes of Boston and the Rags, and into the real contenders.

If Phaneuf continues to destroy them entering the zone they won't. If he catches Crosby or Kessel it'll be game over. For Crosby it could be literally game over. Not sure what's come over Phaneuf but he seems to have rediscovered a mean streak I haven't seen since his Calgary days.

I am not sure how he didn't get Penalized on the play last night.

It was exactly the Scott Stevens special and is pretty much exactly what I thought the league was trying to remove.

The thread is so bad at this point that it seems like everyone is tired of bickering... have to keep though, as a place for future bickering and of course because it is the biggest thread ever on HB

They didnt call it because Rust was way too low on the play, and head wasnt first contact.

Nope. The Kings thread in the misc. has gone up to 3000 pages I believe, and then been locked and refilled another time or two.
