Are the Sens a dirty team?
Mon, May 14, 2007

Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said this week that Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson should have been suspended for a hit from behind on defenceman Henrik Tallinder in overtime of Game 2 of the NHL Eastern Conference final.

Alfredsson said he hadn't seen the replay but felt that "it didn't feel like a hit from behind."

Alfie's hit has Sabres steamed

What the cross-check hit Campbell laid on Chris Kelly which led to Briere's tying goal? Wasn't that a hit from behind also? What is good for goose should be good for the gander! GO SENS GO!

It is all point of view, if Alfie ran a Canadian defenceman like that in the olympics, we would have his head on a platter. He is a little man in big skates, he has to play tough, but he should be smart enough not to run people from behind in the playoffs. If he had gotten suspended, as he should have, then this series would have taken a whole new look and I'm guessing it would be 2-1 instead of 3-0. Smarten up Alfie, the cup is yours if you want it. As long as Murray keeps the leash tight on these guys no one is going to stop them!

Tim has to be a Laffs fan or another Sabre-whiner. yes, yes how did those goons,Heatley & Spezza ever make it to the NHL? And that master intimidator Dean Mcammond, just brutes.hahaha sorry whiners, this is tough, strong clean hockey.

The sens are not a dirty team. This statement could not be further from the truth. They have manhandled every opponent in this playoffs and received at best, a nod from the "national" (read Toronto) based media. All these comments criticizing the play of Alfredsson are not basing it on this years playoffs. He is one of the stars of the 2007 playoffs. A well deserved run so far for a very classy player.

Hey remember the hit on Tucker in the playoffs from behind and then scoring the winning goal. Alfie better figure out what hit from behind means.

Tough? LOL I'd consider Captain Kangaroo more intimidating than Daniel Alfredsson. But hey, atleast Captain Kangaroo won't hit you from behind.

You must be kidding. Actually, the SENS are the total opposite. I find that Ottawa is not tough enough at times. But we don't need to be we have amazing talent. Even Neil hadrly has any penalties in the playoffs. The only hot head on the team is Razor. He just needs to mature a bit and learn that hockey is not a game for showoffs and being kool is not the most important thing in the world.

Hey Tim,

Don't know if you have been watching the series 'cause Emery has been getting run constantly whereas at the other end, Miller has not been touched. Ottawa has been very good at avoiding contact with the other goalie in the playoffs except for the odd snow shower...Just because Buffalo is was wearing white last night does not make them angels! For a change the Sens are doing what they have to do to win!

I will readily admit the hit was from behind, but I don't think it in any way was intended as a cheapshot. He didn't run the guy or anything, Tallinder turned and lowered his head as Alfie was lining up the hit. The only people who are genuinely convinced Alfie is a dirty player are Leaf fans.

I know the Leaf fans must be dreading the crow they'll have to eat once the Sens head to the final, somewhere they haven't been in the last 40 years. So it doesn't shock me that this kind of envy leads to a muck raking question like that.
