If that's not being a team player, I don't know what is!

Douchebag.
Um...I'm reminded of the expression "Better safe than sorry" at times like these.

Yes the puck was on it's way in but this is the playoffs where every goal takes on an added importance. Many things could have happened if Alfie had just left the puck alone: Miller could have made a last minute desperate swipe at the puck. Or, a Buffalo player could have saved it with his stick.

It just so happened that there wasn't a Buffalo player in the vicinity of Alfredsson but he may not have known that. I think he did the sure thing rather than being an "unselfish teammate" and letting someone else get the goal.

Absolutely, I was going to say something similar - this isn't the time for niceties, it's the playoffs and you have to ensure you get that goal.

I'm kind of happy Ottawa lost - the other series may go on for a bit and we don't want Ottawa to have too much of a break in between series. That and it's such a great series that I dont' want it to end! I think Buffalo will win the next one but Ottawa will win back home. And since I've been 100% correct on my Ottawa predictions thus far, you can take that to the bank.

I don't like the Sens.

But I respect that they've gotten this far.

Doesn't mean I have to root for them.

Just keep giving it to Afinogenov.

I really don't understand all the Sens haters out there.

I mean, it's not like it's the Leafs!

True, but I think they're the least-cool Canadian team after the Leafs

I flew up from DC for the Sabres - Sens game today. Tough loss. I don't regret coming, though...I had a great time. We Buffalo fans are very used to disappointments.

I guess the Sens are proving you don't need an amazing goalie to make the Stanley Cup finals.
