First post in a thread entitled "When the game is lost":

When there is only a few minutes left, and nothing is going your way, and you know you have no hope in hell of winning... Shouldn't you take the opportunity to tenderize you opponent? I'm not talking about turning the game into a sequel of Slap Shot, but making a physical effort and finishing your checks hard.

I thank Gary Roberts for creating a little emotion at the end of the game.... I think we needed that...

Second post:

Or they could do this at the start of games and continue it until the end, thus creating a decent chance of winning.

Very good, Sens fan.

No post coming until late tonight -- see you tomorrow.
