He is a turnover machine when he is healthy. I can only guess what 4 months of inactivity will do to him.
I think the Sens better hope he makes a difference today, because anything he has will be as a result of adrenaline. Next game and the rest of this series will be difficult for him as he tries to jump right in to round 2 of the playoffs.
Yep, I expect him to actually make a difference in this game, as he'll be playing on pure adrenaline in front of an insane Canadian crowd. He'll make their PP instantly more dangerous, and his creativity will cause some problems. It also helps MacLean set his lines more effectively and, because they're at home, help manage who he's out there against. Having said all of that, Br
ks probably already has him lined up for a big hit.
I expect the whole Senators team to play inspired tonight. Can't wait to see the opening that they have planned to fire up the troops...
'Madness?!? THIS...IS...um, hold on, I forgot my line. Just let me check the back of my shield here. Oh, okay
