Found April 22, 2012 on The 6th Sens:
"I'm now a very emotional Sens fan." This is the message I received from Jakob Silfverberg's older sister last night, at 4 a.m. Swedish time. It’s safe to say that the focus of the Silfverberg family has quickly shifted from the Brynäs playoff run to that of the Ottawa Senators. Same goes for the most interesting person in that family (apologies to former SEL star, father Jan-Erik). After securing the SEL championship title on Thursday, he didn’t celebrate as hard as his teammates, despite being the biggest star on the team, having scored the game-winner and being named playoff MVP. At Friday’s celebration party, the down-to-earth Silfver Surfer once again took it easy, and was the first one to leave. His focus was already elsewhere. Just mere hours after the Sens left the sludge of The World’s Most Famous Arena, the next forward out of the deep and talented pool of prospects to make his NHL debut for the Sens boarded a plane. While his sticks didn’t make it all...

Raging Stoner: Mark Stone Set to Make NHL Debut

If today's morning skate is any indication, Senators fans will probably get a chance to watch uber prospect Mark Stone to play in his first National Hockey League game tonight. Since the 1987-88 season, only 40 teenagers have played in the postseason. Should Stone play, he will be the first teeanage player to make his NHL debut in the playoffs since Jarome Iginla did it back...

Jason Spezza's controversial goal - Rangers nation not happy

This is one of the reason that I love playoff hockey. There is so much going on in the game and the players take it up a notch from the regular season. Unfortunately, the right call isn't always made or is it? Here is the controversial goal that was scored by Senators' forward Jason Spezza. It would appear from the video that Chris Neil going hard and crashing the net...

Chris Neil Not Suspended and Alfie Set to Return?

In his post-game press conference last night, Torts drew parallels between Neil's hit and the Raffi Torres hit on Marian Hossa; even going so far as to say that Boyle had sustained a concussion and that the NHL has...
