Squeaking Out A Win Against The Lowly Islanders

What was almost as scary as seeing Alfredson, the Senator's MVP crawl off the ice clutching his ribs, was the reality that we were DOWN 3-1 to an inept Islanders squad.
The opening line up was incomprehensible. Murray has a serious log up his ass with regards to Vermette. I don't know, maybe Vermette boinked his daughter or something. With the exception of McGrattan, Vermette logged the least amount of minutes amongst forwards. That is ridiculous.
We scratched our way back to win 4-3 so most people will describe it as gutsy come from behind win. Sorry this game should not have even been close. The Islanders were horrible.
Right now, we are starting to look like the Washington Capitals of old, who put together impressive regular seasons, but always found a way to shoot themselves in the foot. We have superior talent but we refuse to use it to full advantage and that has been the recurring theme of the Senator's franchise over the past six years.
When I was about to start this weblog, I was a huge fan of Brian Murray...now I find he is no better than Martin.
Our goaltending is better than last season but other than that we have not made the changes needed to win the Cup.
