My Favourite Kind Of Quickie
by Deb Beckers
We’re two games in and for the Ottawa Senators it’s 6 Games until they hold the Cup of Cups in their smelly, smelly hands.
Oh and the Ducks didn’t totally suck yesterday.
Buffalo (1) at Ottawa (4)
Ottawa Leads Series 2-0
Ottawa is kicking ass. They played for three whole periods on Saturday, unfortunately so did the Sabres; Even if they couldn’t match the Sens hard hitting, consistent playing and hot goalie (who is ALSO hot BTW).
Speaking of Emery... He’s running his mouth again (he suggested that there is nothing to do in Buffalo - *shocking*), so you know it’s going to be an interesting series. In one fell swoop he managed to piss off the city of Buffalo. But it’s Buffalo, so no one cares – All the Buffalo fans cross the border from Canada anyway (the tickets are about 400% cheaper than trying to get decent Leaf tickets).
With Spezza streaking and Alfie playing better than he has in years (he’s playing like Mats Sundin SHOULD be playing) the Sens are poised to deliver the death blow at home.
If I can breathe properly.
Detroit (1) at Anaheim (2)
Series is Tied at 1-1
Truthfully? I fully expected the Ducks to take this series; and then I actually paid attention to a western game (shocking, I know). Detroit wants it. They really really want it and they are not afraid to resort to actually playing good hockey to get it.
Hasek is looking stronger than strong (as long as he doesn’t have to handle the puck), Datsyuk is scoring, Lindstrom is playing a good 30 minutes a game and the Wings have only lost one game since Homer (Holmstrom) came back from an eye injury.
The Ducks got it together for game 2, playing a strong first period. Then they slowed down, if not for their excellent defense – there would have been no overtime.
Another fun series to watch.
