The Ottawa Senators are boring. Soooooo boring. That’s what we keep getting told, so it must be true.
They never come out with any energy, or really ever go for the lead from the start.
#Sens score :48 in - Hoffman fires a shot from below the goal line off MAF and in. His 5th of the playoffs. 1-0 OTT— Josh Getzoff (@PensJG) May 18, 2017
And scoring multiple goals? Don’t hold your breath. They sit back to wait, and wait, and wait for just the right opportunity. Takes forever.
1/2 The #Sens have established a new franchise record (2:18) for fastest three goals in a post-season game tonight vs Pittsburgh.— Sens communications (@Media_Sens) May 18, 2017
Any goals they do score? All lucky, fluky goals. No skill involved.
All the offence all comes through Karlsson too. They can’t do anything without him and the scoring is absurdly top-heavy.
Five different Ottawa goal scorers and the Senators are in command, 5-0, after 40 minutes.— Ottawa Citizen (@OttawaCitizen) May 18, 2017
And the trap. Just clogging up the neutral zone - it’s all this team can do defensively!
Realize, the trap isnt hurting the Penguins. Theyve had ample zone time this series. Sens' D-zone composure is strangling scoring chances.— Mike Kearney (@MKPGH) May 18, 2017
And lastly, the crowd - everybody knows we’ve got a terrible crowd. They sit on their hands, never make any noise. Boring team, boring city, boring crowd.
Hahahah Don just told a crowd of Sens fans to stop chanting Go Sens Go "these guys are getting on my nerves here eh???"— Joel Forman (@joelthesakic) May 18, 2017
We just have to come to terms with how boring this team is, and how boring we are as fans. It’s a tough lot in life - if only we had something to take the edge off the pain of it.
