More than you could ever want to read about the Senators and Penguins over at the FanHouse.
What do you guys expect from this series? Any predictions (c'mon, lurkers - here's the perfect opportunity for your first comment, even if it's an anonymous one)? I'm on record as picking the Sens in seven.
It is going to be an extremely tough series. The Sens have to bum rush Fleury early and often, and if Emery keeps up his stellar work it can happen. The Sens and Pens are loaded with talent, but the Pens guys are very young guys. They Sens have to dominate early and get under their skin. Roberts is the wild card.
Sens in 5. Penguins rely too much on the power play and, c'mon, can you REALLY trust Fleury in a pressure situation?
sens in 6, with crosby sustaining a career ending injury in the first game (cross your fingers)!
The Sens have the advantage talent wise, albeit a slight one, but they've failed too many times in the Playoffs not to be second guessing themselves throughout.
Sid the Kid and the Baby Pens in 7.
And why would anyone wish a career ending injury, or any injury on someone else? It's not enough for them to lose the series, now you're hoping for someone to get hurt? That's just stupid. Maybe you should watch Pride Fighting instead of hockey.
As much as I hate crosby, I don't want him to get hurt. I just want him to leave pittsburgh in a heart-mutilating way.
I really hope this series is on TV. Even when the Caps aren't involved, I love rooting against the Pens.
Pens v. Sens @ 7 pm EST on Versus.
I hate the Pens with a burning passion, and I've always liked the Sens. So I will be rooting for the Sens here, but I gotta think the Pens are going to take it, and probably not even in 6 or 7. This should be a great series, though, especially at the beginning.
Sens win in 6.
"Penguins rely too much on the power play and, c'mon, can you REALLY trust Fleury in a pressure situation?"
Fleury? Gonchar is the king of ill-timed turnover, complete with blank stare and fumbling recovery. I was sitting on the 4th level, right on the defensive blue line the last time he did that... hey, wasn't that against the new media darling Penguins? The memory will be forever burned in my brain as that series came to an abrupt and cruel conclusion. No, I'm not bitter.
Dave in DC: I was there too. *sigh*
And anonymous, we don't live in Philly.
