Is This It?
That was the best the Sens could do against one of the worst teams in the league, a 4-1 loss, at home?
25 games in, and the Sens sit 2 games below .500, and based upon the play tonight, they’re just fine with that.
Tonight showed absolutely no urgency or sense of opportunity. In fact, based upon the casual demeanor of the players both on and off the ice, one would think they figured this one was in the bag.
It was in the bag alright…and it left a lot of fans sucking wind.
It doesn’t matter what I hope, the fact is, the Sens are making clear emphatic statements that they do not have the drive to get the job done, and if they should come to discover it, it may be too late.
The only sliver of good news on the night came in the way of losses to two of the teams the Sens have to catch in order to make the post season.
Dallas dropped the ‘Canes, and the Blueshirts fell to the Pens.
It’s all I can do to keep from calling this teams post season ambitions dead.
It’s not over yet…but if things don’t change, and in spectacular fashion, it will be over soon…very, very, soon.
