Some of you have asked why I've been noticeably silent regarding the Ottawa Senators recently. To be honest, I didn't know what to say. I still don't! Last night I was at the game in Ottawa. The Canadiens beat the Sens soundly 3-0. The game was bittersweet because I DO like the Habs' young goaltender Carey Price but I wasn't praying for a shutout (which he got).

Nobody seems to be able to figure out the Senators recently. Who would have thought in early November that they'd be struggling to secure a playoff berth during the last week of the season.

Anyhow, it was good to see Mike and Chris Neil (pictured) briefly after the game. As always, Mike played a strong game but the Sens just didn't get any bounces. Little Fish bounced a few Canadiens off the boards though.

Hopefully the Sens can put away the Leafs on Thursday night.

Hey, Pilgrim, you just snuck over there without even telling us you were going...I would have prayed real hard for a Sens win if I knew you were there ;) Honestly, I feel so bad for the Sens right now. I was glad when they started losing, because then the Habs could get 1st place, and this city was rocking! But as the downward spin continued, I became alarmed. And certainly with the position they are in right now, as I told my sister this morning, I can't imagine Ottawa not in the play-offs. That will be so boring. The trip to Ottawa in May will lack all the Sens-flag-spotting fun, and if the Habs are eliminated, I don't know who I'd cheer for in the East. I hope the Sharks make it all the way to the Finals in the West...they have two players whose careers I have really enjoyed following.

LauraMae, Enjoy the game Friday. I won't be listening, because I'll be taking a 24hr sports break (I do that weekly to rest my mind just in case I get too caught up in it all), but I'll still be praying. It's good to see you back here!

Oh, and Pilgrim, Ouch says it all! I winced when I was listening to the radio yesterday and I heard Fish criticized for only having 5 points since the end of January. My mom has always taught us not to criticize athletes' performance, because we never know what they are really going through (she would know--she was there before!), and it is hard now to hear anything negative about Little Fish ever since I first reda about him here.

Go, Sens, Go! May they be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might (Eph. 6:10).

God bless you all,
