Great game, from what I saw... Unfortunately I was only able to catch it from the last 5 mins of the 2nd. From what I saw and what I'm reading this morning, Ottawa looked good and certainly picked up their pace from a sluggish game vs the bads on Tuesday.
Scoring! Hooray! While I was hoping Spezz would get one, I was happy to see Kels finally plug one in and Cheech get his second. I think I'll feel relief everytime #41 lights the lamp this year. I find myself really pulling for him to succeed.
Of course, special shoutouts to Philly on two grapes his 800th game and the Watermelon Warrior who clinched the century mark. Well done!
A great home game can allow us to really enjoy the start of this weekend, especially for those who get a free lunch today!
On a side note, does anyone know who was calling the game on TSN2? It was the Pittsburgh feed and I really enjoyed it. First off, it was nice to listen to an American broadcast that didn't need to explain offsides and icing. But, what I really liked is that these guys weren't homers. They praised Alfie's skating, recognized Spezza's funk (along with his talent) and really celebrated Big Rig's big night. Aside from the pronunciation of "Pee-card", I enjoyed their call.
Another huge test on Saturday against the division leading Slugs. Do you think we can actually achieve a sellout?
