No doubt Pittsburgh is the favourite tonight. Anderson is fully capable of stealing the game though. The Pens thoroughly domianted play last game and they still lost. I don't even think the Pens are capable of playing better than they did so yeah. Anyone can win.

Love it.

Easy schedule ............ even though all teams in the Atlantic play the same amount of games vs the same opponents (besides themselves).

Luck driven run.

Played vs backups .

Benefit from bad refereeing.

Played against tired teams.

All true.

and you know it

Who benefits from refs letting everything go? Ask yourself that and try to answer honestly. When every player can grab and tackle every other player, it completely removes Pittsburgh's advantage in talent.

While I am disappointed that the Senators didn't win maybe it was for the best. The cup rings probably would've made melnyk have to file for bankruptcy.

And "proper funding" got the leafs eliminated in the first round.

Ottawa played three rounds this year........... the leafs have played two rounds since 2005.


Look, we all know you're super jealous of the Senators great playoff round.......... they were within one goal of the Finals, but lost to the defending Cup Champs, and the favorites to win the Cup this year.

The leafs have been golfing for about a month now, so your little shots at the Sens have little effect on Sens fans ........... or anyone else who have been watching the Sens through three playoff rounds. We all know the Senators had a much better season this year than the leafs ......... so save your pathetic attempts to spin it the other way until next year ................. anymore posts trying to alter the reality of this season is be wasted and only proves the intense discomfort you and leaf fans like you have had for the past month ............ you're super jealous, and would have hoped the leafs would have had the same playoff run the Sens just completed, but they didn't because the Senators, once again are the better of the two Ontario teams, as they've been since the lock out.

chabot a top 2 drafted d prospect. most of the geezers on the team are easily replaceable. their core is young enough for another 4-5 runs if managed correctly.

I expected it, but let's get real, they're not built to win a cup. They basically had everything go their way (well, most things). A decimated Bruins team, that still gave them trouble. They beat the Rangers, they deserve credit for that. But then the Pens. They're not going to beat a Pens team with several championship caliber players. When the chips are down, players like Sidney Crosby and Evgeny Malkin get it done. They win. The sens don't have any players like that.

Even battered and bruised, I count on a team with players like that, to come out on top. And that's what it came down to. I didn't watch much of the game, I tuned in with a few minutes left in the third, and watched the first overtime, and tuned back in a few minutes into the second. But the entire time I was watching, the sens were under siege. That sequence that Crosby stole the puck from karlson, from behind, karlson coughed up the puck along the boards earlier in that shift as well.

It's not hard to see why some players constantly win, and some don't. The Pens have multiple players that have what it takes. They're still beat up, and they're going to be playing a reasonably healthy, deep and dominant Preds team. But I still think they come out on top. Because I don't see any guys on Nashville that really stick out in that way.

I've said it many times in the past, and I'll say it again. The sens will not win with that core. They'll see a major setback next season, and wonder why. Eventually, they'll fire another coach, maybe even piss off another captain. Eventually their 36 year old goalie, who was absolutely monstrous this playoffs, will decline/retire, and there will be even more issues.

But whatever, I'm sure sens fans think Chabot and White will carry over the top right now. Each to their own.
