Silver Nuggets: Line up stays the same for Game Six

Here are some stories to read while you wait for the puck to drop on Game Six:

  • In an unsurprising move, there are no changes to the line up tonight. Pascal Leclaire starts in net, while Shean Donovan starts on the fourth line. (Sens Twitter)
  • An interesting look at the dehydration caused by marathon NHL playoff games, like the one we witnessed Thursday night. (Globe & Mail)
  • An encouraging stat: Ottawa has won three straight game sixes. A discouraging stat -- they were all in 2003 or 2004, which makes it completely irrelevant. (Mendes)
  • Don Brennan considers the morning after the 4-3 triple-OT win to be "the greatest morning in franchise history." And people say hockey fans have short memories? (Sun)
  • The Citizen disagrees, placing it fifth on a list of the biggest playoff games in Sens' history (Citizen)
  • Puck Prospectus has a list of the top 100 NHL prospects, and three Senators make the list: Patrick Wiercioch (17), Jared Cowen (63), Robin Lehner (76). (Puck Prospectus)
  • Some terrible news to report, too -- a man in South Fayette, Pennsylvania has allegedly killed his wife after an argument caused by the triple-overtime game between the Senators and Penguins. (National Post)
