Sens / Lightning

This is a game I'm watching for the Sens to come out strong. They need to view the games against the teams expected to fight for the last few playoff spots as 4pt games. They won them against the Leafs, Isle, and Thrashers and need to keep it going against this improved Tampa team.

Offensively we been more focussed on Kovalev's first goal than Spezza's. I think the latter is more important to the club. Brent Wallace's tweet a few minutes ago made me feel better about it though:
In 07-08 Spezza went goaless in his 1st 7 games but he went on to record his best offensive season of his career. 34 goals and 92 pts

The Sens haven't had success on the PP but have been saved by a good PK. Tampa has too many weapons up front to tempt fate too many times shorthanded. Make that your key to victory.

UPDATE: Be sure to go over the live blog with DHS and friends!
