SENATORS NEWS: Some thoughts on Sens vs. Pens Oct 27

Post by Scott Simps » Thu, 29 Oct 1992 15:07:33


Well, it was to be expected, I guess.  A 7-2 whitewashing at the hands of
the still unbeaten Pens.  in fairness to the home team, we did play a spirited
third period.  In fact, it was only 1-0 Pens t the first intermission.  Anyway,
a few quick notes:

  o  After playing in just two games apiece before tonight, Brad Marsh and
     Andrew McBain both played tonight.  Marsh had loads of ice-time, and he
     played a spirited game.
  o  McBain was teamed with Peluso and Rob Murphy for the most part
  o  Not playing tonight were Mark Lamb (bruised ankle?), Mark Freer, Marc
     Fortier and Mark Osieki.  Of course, it's only in typing this that I
     realise all are named Mark.  Hmmmm...
  o  For the second time this year, Brad Shaw fell victim to the "Scott Picked
     Me In The USENET Draft So I Feel A Compelling Need To Get Injured" kiss-of-
     death as he checked himself into the boards early in the first.  He came
     back fortunately and played a good game.
  o  Steve Weeks replaced Sidorkiewicz for the third period, basically stood
     on his head, and, I feel, earned himself a start, perhaps against Buffalo
     this weekend.
  o  Being at the game and not being able to see the replay, could someone
     who saw the game (Lori?) please explain to me the Thomson-Tocchet
     incident?  Thomson got 7 minutes and a game misconduct for fighting and
     instigating, Tocchet got 2 minutes and a game for roughing and third-man
     in.  So, I can only assume Thomson was fighting someone who turtled.  I
     dunno, it just seemed weird that the Pens got a 5 minute PP on the whole
     deal.
  o  Mario and Ulf potted two each, Kjell Samuelsson, Kevin Stevens and Shawn
     McEachern (?) scored singles for the Pens, Laurie Boschman and Darcy Loewen
     had the Sens goals.  
  o  The highlight of the night, for me, was Loewen's goal.  He being my
     fave-rave player, and all.
  o  Y'know, there's no better seat than a few rows up right in a corner of the
     rink.  I only wish most of my seats were there, but I only have three games
     in these puppies.  They're perfect.  I just *love* the corners.
  o  On the bad side, there were three recognisable "waves", two "Rock And Roll
     (Part II)"'s, and seemingly countless attempts to start the Tomahawk Chop
     chant-deal.  Sigh...
  o  Another nifty part of the evening was having one of
     the women sitting in the row in front comment to her friend that she
     wished the Civic Centre had an organ instead of all the rock music
     samples.  Cool.  I wonder if she's reading r.s.h. and was tying the two
     threads together?  Hmmm...  anyway, I thought it somewhat ironic.
  o  The Pens looked immense and we didn't.  That should sum it all up.

Anyway, I'm too pooped to note anything else.  I'll just add the old cliche that
it was closer than the score indicates.  Wait-- that's not exactly true, it
*was* a blowout.  But if you took away the second period, we'd have only lost
3-2!  And if you took away the first period, it would've only been a tie!  And
if the third period was only 11 1/2 minutes long, we would have won!  And if
you take away all their goals, ...

OK, I'm babbling now.  I'll stop.

Later,
Me

No kidding, I've been impressed with him in the games I've seen as well.  
He always seems to playing like it's the seventh game of the Cup final;
a really hard worker.

Actually, the Civic Centre *has* an organ.  I was at a 67's game
earlier this year and it was used exclusively. No rock music, just
all those traditional 'organ tunes' that I remember from the Forum in
the old days.  I agree with her too, they should use it.
