Brian Murray's ranks up there. "They wanted to play Ottawa." Of course we did, assbag. Who wouldn't want a bye in the 1st round? Fact is, the fork has been in the Senators for so long, that you now need a spoon. And if you had a choice, who would you rather play:
A) A team that sucks, but has dirty players whose only intent on the ice is to injure (The Flyers)
B) A team that sucks (The Senators)
Either the Flyers or the Sens, it didn't matter. The Pens 1st Round series wasn't going more than 5 games. The only benefit of not playing Philly is you avoid the possibility of one of their shield-wearing scumbags (i.e. Downie or Hartnell) taking a cheapish run and trying to injure one of the Penguins stars. The Sens can't even do that right (witness non-tough guy Ryan Whitney's beatdown of Wade Redden last night.)
Game 2 adjustments for Ottawa...word on the streets is that Murray is replacing Randy Robitaille on the 1st line with Martin LaPointe.
Dude. Randy Robitaille would be healthy scratch on the Pens. And your answer to Game 1's drubbing is Martin Lapointe?!?
This series is d.u.n. Ottawa...thanks for coming. Bring on Ovy and the Caps.
