GDP #82: Sens @ Boston - The Final Game
Well here we are, the last game of a long season, as the Sens are in Boston to take on the Bruins in an afternoon delight game to wrap up the year at TD Garden. The big news is Cody Bass will be in a Sens uniform for the first time since December 2008.
No real big lineup changes today, Curtis McElhinney starts, and the B's will counter with Sen killer Tim Thomas. Otherwise the lines will be similar to the team that beat the Montreal Canadiens in OT on Thursday night. The other news is that this is likely Cory Clouston's last game ever behind the bench. In some ways I'm sorry to see him go. Thanks CCC.
Prediction: The Senators have played much better as of late, but always have a tough time with Boston, especially IN Boston. This however is the last game this season, and for many, perhaps the last time they play in the NHL, so they will most likely come out hard. The Sens win 4-3.
