Senators Sure To Miss Playoffs

I was hoping, just as all Sens fans would have, that the return after the All-Star break would see our team bring back the form that they have been known for and not the one that has plagued them this season. It wasn’t to be and now the Sens look like they are about to miss the playoffs for the first time in a long time. Immediately after the break, we lost 1-4 to New Jersey and then ended January with a 3-1 win against the Blues followed the next day by a 0-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Still we thought, “ok! Just two loses; not to worry. We’ll bounce back in the next couple of games. Again – we had 3 losses on alternative days during the first week of February. A 4-7 loss to Washington and then a 0-1 loss at home to Los Angeles was followed by a shoot-out loss to the Boston Bruins. Letting go of Zdeno Chara does not look so great at this time does it?

It didn’t happen until the last Saturday, with a 3-2 win against the Buffalo Sabres. Now we go on a road trip for 5 games within 7 days. I’m sure we’ll win a few but the playoffs are looking like a distant dream. We’ll probably finish in 10th place.

So this is what it feels like to be a Maple Leafs fan!
