I don't have time to do a long post today but Hockey Analysis has a very good summary of the game which essentially sums up my views. Especially this bit:
Although they got the win, any realistic Senator fan has to be somewhat concerned by last nights game. The Senators took way too many penalties and the Leafs managed to keep the Senators offence under control for most of the game. The other thing that might concern Senators fans is that Brian Murray's plan to distribute the offence over three lines appears to have failed so far. Although Alfredsson played well most of the game, he simply couldn't generate much offence playing with Fisher and Neil. And maybe more concerning is that the second line of Schaeffer, Smolinski and Havlat haven't been producing much offence through the pre-season and now into the regular season. In 21 combined games so far they produced just 4 goals and 9 points. If the Senators are going to have a successful season they need that line to contribute more goals.
And you might want to try getting more shots on net. That the team that is supposed to walk away with the cup couldn't demolish the Leafs ( remember we are supposed to finish lower than Washington this year) WITHOUT MATS SUNDIN would have me a little concerned if I was a Sens fan.
If this thing was a playoff game and had continued with sudden death overtime you know the Leafs would have scored the winner.
There are no shootouts in the playoffs Sens fans.
