Confidence

The Sens had every opportunity to win game 5, but couldn't quite get it done. Does that make you more or less confident for game 6?

Adnan: It makes me no difference for me for game six. The games have been super tight and Boston has to win two coin flips while Ottawa has to win one.

Colin: My confidence is slightly less for two reasons. First, is the lack of energy on the two power plays at the end of the third period. Nearly a third of Ottawa's goals prior to Friday's game were on the man advantage, so hopefully it can get back in shape. The other is that Tuukka Rask is heating up, after looking vulnerable earlier in the series. As we've seen around the league, a goalie can make all the difference in turning a series around. Let's hope the Sens can close it out tonight.

Ross: About as confident as I was before Game 4. Like Adnan said, the games have been close and it's hard to predict an outcome ahead of time.

Trevor: I don't think Ottawa played that bad, and they could have easily won the series on Friday. I guess I'm less confident going into game six, only because Boston only has to win 2 games now instead of 3. But I'm not worried about Ottawa's ability to beat Boston.
