When I turned on the television I was hoping Ottawa would rally and prove themselves playoff-worthy. In other words, I was predisposed to cheer for the Sens. But Pittsburgh's energy and, dare I say, joy was so infectious I was on my feet when Gary Roberts put in his backhand goal. Normally there's not much fun to be had when witnessing a rout, but last night was the exception.
As for San Jose v. Calgary, after last night I'm counting on them taking it to the full seven games -- a very welcome prospect for this viewer.
