Did that really happen again?

I refuse to believe I saw that again. Another 3-1 lead gone in the third period. The sixth two-goal cushion that went poof in the night this season in HSBC Arena. A 4-3 overtime loss to the Canadiens that should just about be it for this team's playoff hopes.

Enough about youth. Lindy Ruff has to get these guys to finish better. Veterans have to make plays. Mike Weber and Andrej Sekera have been terrific and theyr'e rookies. Toni Lydman and Henrik Tallinder have been brutal. And for all the great things he's done this year, Jason Pominville made a horrible play in the final minute by missing an empty net -- and icing the puck to boot.

I suppose we all have to be Senators fans for Saturday's game in Boston, as hard as it may be to stomach doing that. But does it really matter?
