All Tied Up
Six games. Three wins a piece. And eleven goals a side. Folks, it doesn’t get closer than this.
Game Seven. At Madison Sqauare Garden. It doesn’t get any brighter.
And the Sens have to forget Game 6. Wipe it out of the memory banks. It’s a one-game series.
I was going to blog tonight about the negatives. The refereeing. The missed opportunities. The stats. But none of this would mean anything. Referees are human. Missed opportunities present themselves over again. And stats are just numbers.
This Ottawa Senators team today has a chance to do something no one expected out of them this year. And for what it means, they’re Canada’s last team in the NHL playoffs.
Could the refs have made a few calls that would have stemmed the tide in Game 6? Yes. But the game is over, so there is no sense in dwelling.
Can Spezza, Michalek, and Karlsson be difference-makers? Yes. But the good thing is, Game 7 is there to let them prove it.
Will Alfredsson play the game like there’s no tomorrow? That’s a guarantee.
If they lay it all on the line today, and play a 60-minute game, they can go home satisfied with their effort. And hopefully, just hopefully, they win. It will be a game of momentum that hopefully swings in Ottawa’s favour tonight. The way Game 7′s were meant to be.
So Go Sens Go!
