It’s the Stanley Cup playoffs, and obviously a lot of the players aren’t tweeting as much as they used to. Understandable. So here’s a mish mash of hilarious tweets found over the week, presented to you guys!
Just when the playoff tides seem to be flowing in the Ottawa Senators’ favor, the Pittsburgh Penguins swept the carpet out from under the team’s skates in Game Four. Throw in a couple of miscalled penalties and there you have a game fit for the Stanley Cup Playoffs!
The Senators seemed to be carrying the momentum from their last win into Game Four with a beaut of a short-handed goal by Ottawa’s Milan Michalek just » Continue reading “Senators Fall To Penguins 7-3, Face Friday Elimination”
We all know hockey players are the best players out there. The tweets below show they can not only make us laugh with their wit and sarcasm, but that they have amazing hearts too.
First we have the Senators Erik Karlsson who apparently isn’t good at cards:
The Ottawa Senators really should petition to have all of their playoff games at home. Or at least those games played against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Then again, maybe it was the reappearance of Senators forward Jason Spezza that fired up the Sens to play a better game. Either way, the Senators put on a show tonight with a double overtime thriller! » Continue reading “Double OT Thriller In Ottawa: Sens Beat Pens 2-1″
Game Two of Round Two is in the bag for the Ottawa Senators and the Pittsburg Penguins, though not in a way that the Senators appreciate. The Penguins on the other hand, well, nothing says success like a hat trick am I right?
On the bright side, Ottawa came close to taking the Penguins to a guaranteed game five, pushing for the goals to end the game only one goal down, 4-3. The Senators even managed to get the last word in!
The first period kicked off with, of course, a goal from » Continue reading “A Hat Trick For Crosby And No Win Yet For Ottawa”
Game One of the Ottawa Senators versus the Pittsburgh Penguins is in the bag folks! And boy was it a dozy for the Ottawa Senators. Despite power play opportunities galore, the Senators just could not make the magic happen in the 4-1 loss tonight.
In spite of Pittsburgh taking the first goal less than three minutes into the first period (thanks to Paul Martin on the power play), Ottawa still managed to rally and tie up the game just before the five minute mark with a wrister from Colin Greening.
Of course this would never stop the Penguins’s Evengi Malkin from tallying at least one goal as he took back the lead at 12:15 of the first.
A high point for the Senators in the first period definitely had to do with overall play from both teams. The Penguins did not launch an all-out attack force per what is expected. On the other hand, the Senators remained quite stately, keeping their defense up and pushing for the net.
The second period is where it really started to go downhill for Ottawa. Generally decent play, but not hard enough to produce points and not enough to keep the killer Penguin power play out of the net in the last two minutes of play. Chris Kunitz managed to get a wrist shot right past Anderson for the goal. » Continue reading “Senators Drop Game One, Penguins Take Early Series Lead”
It’s the playoffs which means not a lot of guys are tweeting. That doesn’t mean we didn’t find some great ones over the past couple of days.
First off we have everyone’s favorite Roberto Luongo, aka Strombone, with this one last night after watching James Reimer almost shut out the Boston Bruins:
And that’s the series folks! The Ottawa Senators put the beat down on the Montreal Canadiens tonight in a massive 6-1 win to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs! With injuries and power play goals at the center of the night, it comes as little surprise that the Senators pushed their way to a win.
The first period started out looking like a Montreal game » Continue reading “Senators Take Series In Five”
The Montreal Canadiens may have struck early, but the Ottawa Senators made it three strikes late in the game to get the Canadiens out. Now the Senators are up 3-1 in the series and will look for one more win in Montreal later this week to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The first period saw the Canadiens come out strong and looking for » Continue reading “Senators Looks To Advance Thursday After Overtime Stunner”
The Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens series has officially disproved the sentiment “Canadians are all polite”. Seven goals and a few fights later it turns out that the Senators and the Canadiens would rather have a Sunday night smackdown than a hockey game. So I guess you could say that their version of polite is to wait to score until the clock starts.
The first period kicked off with three penalties, one for » Continue reading “Hockey Or Sunday Night Smackdown? Sens Pummel Habs 6-1″
