Well that was exciting wasn't it? Even though the Sens lost 6-5 in OT tonight, at least it was a thrilling affair, which is really all we've been wanting. The problem we all had was them not playing hard and not competing. Well both of those were solved tonight, and I know one thing, I will be watching more Colorado games now, they are exciting.
The final box score said Brian Elliott made 19 saves, but I didn't see one. Sometimes you need a goalie to make one save to keep you in the game, Elliot failed to do that at all tonight after getting the surprise start. We finally scored 5 and Elliott couldn't get us the win? Sorry to say it, but that's who he is. That is why he was picked last overall in the draft, and that's why he will never be a true #1.
Also, sorry to say it, but the overtime winner was Alfie's fault. He was lazy on the back check and left Duchene alone and that sunk us. Oh well, at least we got the point and earned 3 out of a possible 4 on this roadie. Going into it, we all would have taken that right?
In all honesty, the Sens played pretty well tonight and were let down by some shabby goaltending. Gee why does that sound familiar?
Thoughts on the game?
