An Ode to Ottawa.

The hockey gods are pleased. This series has had just about everything you could hope for from a playoff hockey series: toughness, close scores, great goaltending, surprises, disappointments, heroes, villians, a little bit of old school hockey, and seven games. Sure we all hope our team takes a series in as few games as possible, but isn't this series exactly what makes playoff hockey so great? This series is already among my fondest hockey memories (which goes back about twenty years now). I don't know about you guys, but six games into the playoffs and my nerves are shot! The perseverance of these two teams is unbelievable and we are all lucky to have witnessed this series. I'm not the most frequent poster over at blueshirt banter (i prefer to read mostly), but i think that i speak for all of us when i say that the senators (minus chris neal...joking!) and their fans are the epitomy of class. There has been a lot in this series that we could have squabbled over (and in some instances we have), but for the most part it has been extremely respectful. Seriously, I've enjoyed reading your accurate analyses here at silver seven and your collective input over at blueshirt banter. You guys (and gals) are great! I'm typing this up now because if the rangers lose i'll be too distraught to be this classy, and if the senators lose the tone of this post might be misinterpreted. So now, with each team having three wins, and with the suspense peaking as game seven approaches, i will offer you and your team my genuine appreciation for having helped to create this series that exemplifies why i love hockey!
