Indulged in some prospect porn.
Sens hockey is back.
Even though I only got to watch about half the game overall. I realized just how much I missed hockey this summer.
@RyanH Didn't have a chance to watch the game but listened to it on the radio while watching the Jays. What'd you think?
@Nichols6thSens For most of the first Ottawa dominated Pittsburgh. we seemed too fast for them. That and our players seemed to have found some decent chemistry already.
From what I saw, Cowen and Rundblad were very composed. Wiercoch seems to be skating better, whether or not that is because he's not surrounded by NHL skaters I don't know, but he really seemed smooth out there. I also really enjoyed it too much when Borowiecki ran over that dude. And Lehner was unsuprisingly good. Rundblad had a great play when Lehner was down as he knocked a puck out of the air that was on it's way in. I never noticed Zibanejad much, though I didn't get to watch the game in long spurts, it was a thing of a few minutes here and there. Though Peterssons goal was sexy, even though I don't think you'd get it on an NHL goalie. He has some hands though.
Overall very exciting, even if it was a collection of players on both teams that may never see significant NHL time.
