Let's check the day's events:
- Four Senators named to the 2012 All-Star Game and the Toronto sports media collectively loses their shit because it's not a meritocratic process. Fools!
- Canada wins the bronze medal.
- Senators badly outshot but beat the Lightning 4-1. Craig Anderson was exceptional.
- Kyle Turris gets first goal in Senators uniform.
- Prized prospect Mika Zibanejad scores the OT winner for Sweden in the gold medal game.
I didn't believe that the day could get better, but then I actually heard the Swedish play-by-play of Zibanejad's winner. Unreal.
Great post. One day we might see video footage of the Swedish broadcasters immediately following the goal.
I no longer have to read a half dozen mainstream media outlets to get my sens fix for the day.
The decision to play Zibanejad on the wing seems to have worked. I wonder what Murry and Maclean think of the idea?
@ChrisBurke I believe that Zibanejad played his last two games in Ottawa on the wing. I am not sure where to find out for sure, but at the Wild game to start the year he was there. I assumed due to the struggles in the circle though.
@ChrisBurke Detroit's second language is Swedish. They'll figure it out.
@slavitch How did Detroit come into this? I just named a sens prospect and their GM and Coach? Nowhere in the article or my post is detroit mentioned?
@ChrisBurke Think a little.
