As Senator fans shake their heads at the outcome of the Stanley Cup series opener, the inevitable question Ottawa players will have to answer is: did the long layoff hurt their game?
Time off is a weak excuse.

Hope you guys aren't thinking of leaving anything in the tank for the home fans when the series switches to Kanata. It may be too late by then and all the work to get to this point will have been in vain.
Go out there in the next game and get your noses dirty. I see playoff beards but not enough black eyes.
Get that puck into the offensive zone and battle. In the defensive zone, stop allowing the bigger Ducks to dangle and walk along the boards. Slam a few of them, and stronger stickwork to get the puck.
Finally you guys have a challenge. Let's see if you can meet it. Don't let the Ducks do to you what you did to Buffalo.
Time for some of the fancy players with shirts tucked inside their pants to untuck them. Time for fancy play is over. Time for war is here and now.
