Oh, the good ol' days where we would make the playoffs and then get our asses kicked by the Spuds. Those days were better than these days.
I will proclaim tonight, this is the make or break game. This game is the half-way point of the road trip. So far, we have been terrible on this road trip. If we can't win tonight against the Oilers, then I think it's pretty much over. They have the Leafs, Devils, Sabres, and Bruins after tonight and I can only expect them to win only 1 or 2 of those games. After this, they will have to do a Washington Capitals 09, which is extremely hard to do when your players are being crapped on by Sens fans and we're not even inspired like the Caps were.
I questioned Hartsburg's decision to start Gerber on Sunday, after Auld made a 35-save performance in a losing effort. Gerber made 21 saves against Vancouver. And now he is starting tonight according to Sportsnet? This is the first time I have questioned Coach Harts, and it may be the last time, but why not play Auld, who is now rested and can actually save shots from the blueline.
I haven't used the magic crystal ball in a long time, so I'll use it tonight. I predict the Sens win a chippy one by a score of 4-2(Picard, Heatley, Heatley, Alfredsson; Gagner, Visnovsky) and it may be the lifting point of our season.
I'd like to also point out Don Cherry was wrong once again.
Thanks For Reading and Enjoy The Game!!!
