Found May 22, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
PLAYERS: Chris Neil
TEAMS: Ottawa Senators
from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, "I was going down. I was in vulnerable position. He gave me an extra shove which made me pick up speed going into the boards," said Neil. "That's the way he plays, he plays a physical game. I wouldn't expect anything less."... "Playoff hockey your intensity is high out there. You finish checks," said Neil. "Put it this way, I wouldn't have done that to him to put him in that situation. I'm lucky I'm no worse for wear and I'll keep going." Told of Neil's remarks, Orpik fired back and thought that was pretty rich coming from Neil. "My response is (that's) very laughable coming from him. I thought it was a pretty harmless play," said Orpik. "I didn't even know he didn't return. He's done his fair share of things to me and everybody else in here. "We all know how he plays, and he's a guy who plays hard and he's a ...

Daniel Alfredsson Says ‘Probably Not’ Comments Taken Out of Context Somewhat

Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson isn’t giving up hope just yet, but he certainly knows it won’t be tough for his team to come back in their series with the Penguins. Alfredsson made news following Game 4 on Wednesday night when he replied with “probably not” after being asked whether or not he thought the Senators could come back and win after being down 3-1 with a 7-3...

Daniel Alfredsson's post-game comments decidedly inappropriate

Wow. This is more than a little awkward. As a hockey player and as a captain, I always assumed it would be impossible to criticize Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson. He's the prototypical perfect hockey player, a great team guy... and he just completely threw his whole squad under the bus. When asked in a media scrum after the Senators' 7-3 loss to the Pittsburgh...

Daniel Alfredsson Says Senators Will ‘Probably Not’ Come Back to Beat Penguins

The Ottawa Senators had the opportunity to pull even with the top-seeded Penguins on Wednesday, but they were instead handed a demoralizing 7-3 loss on their home ice.

Ottawa Senators season all but over

The Ottawa Senators got lucky to win Game 3 of the best-of-seven series with the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 in double overtime after their goalie Craig Anderson put on a show facing 50 shots and still winning the game.

Travis Yost: ECSF GAME 4: Can Ottawa Even the Series?

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- A thrilling double-overtime victory against Pittsburgh on Sunday night took the Ottawa Senators off of series life support. If Ottawa can follow suit and successfully defend home-ice for the second time in as many attempts, they'll head back to Pittsburgh in a best-of-three scenario. It's kind of amazing what one goal can do...

Scratch his back with a hacksaw:  Penguins broadcaster Mike Lange remains an iconic hockey voice

From Allen Panzeri of the Ottawa Citizen: Honoured by the Hockey Hall of Fame with the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award in 2001, Lange is an icon in the Steel City, following in the big footprints of Bob Prince, who was the voice of the Pirates for 28 years, and Myron Cope, the colour commentator on Steelers’ radio broadcasts for 25 years.

Paul MacLean keeps it brief after Senators’ loss to Pittsburgh

The Ottawa Senators had a rough night in their own barn, dropping a 7-3 decision to the Pittsburgh Penguins, who now lead the teams' second-round series 3 games to 1, and Yahoo Sports' Sean Leahy reports that Senators coach Paul MacLean held a short press conference. Short doesn't begin to describe it, but its description would probably read longer than what MacLean had...
