It's Saturday evening and we are mere minutes away from puck drop. All day Senators and TML fans have been chirping, bantering, and bullying one another back and forth. Heck even TML coach Randy Carlyle got in on the action! I love that, I love it! It being the battle of Ontario. Both teams have suffered injuries to key players who have a tremendous value to their respective teams. With or without those injured players in the line ups this is a game which is always fought in the trenches and brings the best and worst out in fans on both sides of the ice.
Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk in an I must admit, pathetic effort to "Take Back the Bank" seems to have failed in his quest to keep TML fans at bay. However, I do thank all those TML fans who go and spend their hard earned money on tickets. Keep on pumping cash into our organization!
The teams currently sit 6th and 7th in the Eastern conference:
Toronto: GP18 W11 L7 OT0 PTS22
Ottawa: GP18 W10 L6 OT2 PTS22
This game is a huge four point game which both teams have to win. I am not in the business of making predictions as I am superstitious when it comes to hockey. All I can say is Go Sens Go!
