Well, I think most of us would be surprised to think that in this series a team has a 3-1 lead, let a lone the Ottawa Senators. I think its fair to say that most hockey analysts pegged ottawa as the underdogs, but their play in the playoffs, including the buffalo sabres, should have been otherwise. Ottawa was able to deal with Pittsburgh and New Jersey quite easily in 5 games each, with the top line being dominant through out the series. BUffalo on the other hand seemed to play sloppy against the islanders, and although winning the series in 5 games, did not look impressive at any moment. The rangers also played well against the sabres, and that series could have easily been lost. BUt that was the past, and now its the present. THe same could be said right now that Buffalo could be leading the series 3-1. The difference is the senators have been playing great, and the sabres marginal. THe sabres have the skill and talent that even a horrible performance can end in an overtime loss or a goal game, but the x factor for them has been Ryan Miller. Can Buffalo make a comeback and win game 5? Ottawa won the 2 games in BUffalo in impressive fashion, but perhaps the game 4 win might be a big enough spark to give the sabres some momentum. Its typical for the sens to completely collapse in the playoffs, but this team has been different from the past. Buffalo definiltly wants to win this series and cup as this is most likely the last time this core will be together. So, who is going to win Game 5? What are your predictions?
Mine is a Senators 3-2 win
