Hanging Up The Car Flag

Well, that’s it.  The game last night was a nailbiter, but in the end the Sabres knocked the Sens out.  The most frustrating thing?  The Sabres goals looked like the same kinds of goals the Sens were scoring at the beginning of the season, but apparently have forgotten how to now. Tallinder’s opening goal at 33 seconds?  How many times did we see an early goal from the Sens in the first part of the season.  Drury’s dance to the net, and shot around Emery?  Looks like a Havlat maneuvre to me.  And how about Pominville’s OT short handed victory goal with Alfredsson and Redden flat footed in front of the net?  Looks like the kind of maneuvre Vermette pulled over and over in the regular season.

Ah well.  The season’s over.  Time to dust off the BBQ, and put the car flag away.  It’s probably a good thing.  Too many evenings were spent watching hockey the last few weeks instead of getting work done.

    Alec, the World Hockey Championships get serious now. No more 11-0 blowouts when Canada plays teams from countries with a rich hoceky history such as Czech Republic (today) and Finland (tomorrow).

    And, hey, since Team Canada still has room for players eliminated in the second round, you may still get to see your favourite Senators, such as Jason Spezza and Danny Heatley, both of whom have international experience. But, of course, they'll have to play behind the line of Bergeron, Crosby and Boyes, two Bruins and a Penguin who have been the toast of the tournament to date .
