The final in game five; 4-1. The final in the series; 4-1.
After a bad first game, the Sens showed their skills with style. I pity Garth Snow, who played very well this series but will probably get the heat for the loss. I do NOT pity the NYI coach, with his stumb comments before the series.
Who's next? Either The Caps (if they win) or the winner of the Flyers/Leafs series (if the Caps lose).
El Nastio; On a temporary break from games for the rest of Lent.
The next good joy that Mary had, It was the joy of six; To see her own Son Jesus Christ Upon the Crucifix. Upon the Crucifix, Good Lord; And happy may we be; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost To all eternity.
::sigh:: Well, it's not like I didn't totally expect this. I predicted Sens in 5, and that's what I got. Congratulations, Ottawa fans.
Snow did play well, though I still hold my contention that Osgood would have been the more reliable goalie for the playoffs. Oh well. Too bad the rest of the team dropped the ball, not only this series, but most of the regular season as well. Sure, they were outmatched, but there were a lot of chances they just didn't capitalize on.
I don't think Snow's gonna take any heat on this one, as you suggest. The defense really should have been there more than they were.
I agree that Laviolette got a little excited at the beginning of the series, but I do pity him, as he is a good coach, but most of the team wasn't there for him this year.
Oh well, time to put pinstripes in my avatar and move up to the baseball folder.

"You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named 'Bush', 'Dick', and 'Colon. Need I say more?"
I know all of that. Mike O'Connell himself said in the AP article "Part of it was the uncertainty of not being able to sign him," O'Connell said, adding that he did not attempt to negotiate an extension for Samsonov.
