Someone should put out an Amber alert for Fleury; he clearly forgot to show up tonight.

Good on the Sens for pulling off such a powerful win. Just 2 more to go to clinch it. Nailing it on Friday would be especially good.

It did feel like they slacked off a bit towards the end; but with a strong lead it's understandable. As long as they don't collapse like Edmonton did.

Giving Crosby another goose egg would've been even better; but it wasn't meant to be.

Nope...didn't see this coming.

I like how the Penguins didn't panic. Same lines and match ups.

First home game is going to be very important with a 5-game series now.
Sens must've read your post.

I wouldn't pin that one on Fleury. His team left him hanging more than once, particularly on the 4th Ottawa goal.

Sens have been relentless in disrupting Pittsburgh's game. Pens seem unable or unwilling to respond so far. Pittsburgh is a just one fortunate puck bounce away from being down 3 games already.

No quit in them so far. They are in tough against the Pens, but I think that's what everyone said for the 2 previous series they were in. Lets go Sens. Represent!!!!
As I said. All they have been doing is win when it counts! That was a fun game for Sens fans to watch last night.

The Sens jelled just in time for the playoffs. I hope they can keep it going. They are playing like a determined team.

While every game is important, Friday will be very telling.

If they win, they just need 1 out of 3 to clench the Cup berth.

And they've shown they can keep the Pens back on their heels. The important thing will be to get an early goal or two and sit on the lead. Seems like the Sens have their most energy in the first period and resurge in OT. They do not want to go into OT any more than they have to.

On the other hand, the Pens are going to be looking to come back strong after that thumping they got last night. Heading home down 2 will NOT be where they want to be. So they're going to be pushing hard, and if they don't get ahead early, I'm thinking they might be getting dirtier. We'll probably see more fists flying no matter what happens tomorrow.

Looking forward to it in any case. Go Sens Go!

I think ultimately the injuries would be too much for Pittsburgh. Missing Letang, Daley and now Schultz. That's your top 3 D-men. Add in Hornqvist, Rust and the situation is pretty bad.

Hopefully the great D can carry the load but losing your #1C is the worst thing that can happen offensively.

That was disappointing, but not entirely unexpected.

After the thumping in Game 3, you know the Pens would try to rebound strong, and they did. (Well I assume they did; I didn't start watching till the end of the second)

Still, the Sens kept them to 3 goals and damn near tied it up more than once towards the end.

It's now a 3 game series that really can go either way. It may be the fan in me, but I'm thinking the Sens have a slight edge going forward, as long as they can keep the pressure up and keep frustrating the Pens.

Typical Ducks being cavemen at the end of that game. Enjoy the loss boys

No Johansen, no Fisher, no problem... Stockholm's own Pontus Åberg and Preds rookie and Granby, QC's own Frédérick Gaudreau stepped up in a MAJOR way in their stead...Gaudreau won 9 of 11 faceoffs and was all over the ice...while Aberg scored the game-winner.

let's put this away in Smashville Preds!!!

Getzlaf was just fined for tossing around "homophobic slurs" in Game 4 too... I swear to God, the entire Ducks team is just compiled of USA and Canada's worst bro douche bags, on a team named after a fucking Disney movie, that represent a bland suburban town... how does ANYONE root for this team?

I think the whole slur thing is way overblown and Getzlaf is actually one of the Ducks I like but yeah, they don't deserve to win...
