So, What’ll It Be?

In the first game of the season, we witnessed a Sens team running around, playing a game of manic puck pursuit vs. a solid system.

In game #2 we watched a tightly regimented team with all players sticking to a plan.

So which one is the real Sens?

I’m not sure tonight is the best chance to define what this team is, being a season opener against a team few expect much from.  It’s very possible this team will once again get running around, trying to put on a show fro friends, family and fans.

I sure hope not, because this team will need to take points from the weaker teams like the Islanders.  I remember all to well the 3 losses the Sens suffered against the Islanders early in the last season.  I don’t know what role those losses played in the teams implosion, but no doubt they did little or nothing to prevent its happening.

Tonight I want to see another structured game.  A game based upon solid neutral zone control, and opportunistic offensive creativity.

Beating the Islanders is a big deal, and so is losing to them, especially in the home opener.

  1. I’m sure Clouston will have none of that losing to weaker teams bull. The team looks like they needed a wake up call last year, and if missing the playoffs wasn’t a good enough call I dont know what is

  2. I too remember those losses all too well…

    I really like your work, GN. Keep up the good work.
