Here are some highlights of what he had to say...

It's been a fast and furious post-season thus far and, while you've been enjoying the hockey, Sens TV has had the cameras rolling 24/7 to capture the Senators on their journey.

The latest installment of United In Red is here below and takes a look at games one and two in Montreal. If you missed it (shame on you if you did), you can catch episode one here.

Odds are if you’re reading this you’re not Scotty Bowman. Coincidentally, you don’t have to be Scotty Bowman to figure out that for the Sens to have the best chance possible at winning this series shutting down Sidney Crosby is a must. He is simply the best player going right now and giving him breathing room is a recipe for disaster.

A few observers suggested that Crosby simply didn’t look like himself yesterday and he didn’t do enough to leave an imprint on the game. Things went fine for Pittsburgh regardless, but Crosby’s inability to get something going was not so much his ineffectiveness as it was the Sens ability to keep the puck away from him.

How did they do that? With big efforts from Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Erik Condra and Colin Greening.

Early in their first round series with the Montreal Canadiens, the Sens’ faceoff performances came under some scrutiny. Not only were players on either team being consistently tossed from the draw, the Sens had been singled out for losing crucial draws at crucial moments.

Since Game 3 of that first round series, the Sens have turned it around in the circle consistently winning upwards of 50 per cent of the draws as a team with those who take the majority checking in north of 60 per cent. While there are plenty who would argue convincingly that dominating faceoffs are not always directly related to winning hockey games, there are many positives to be taken from having your way on the draw.

Last night the Sens put in another solid effort in the faceoff circle, this time against the Penguins. Ottawa as a team won 54 per cent of their draws and a large part of that can be attributed to the work of Kyle Turris. Turris took a game high 21 faceoffs last night and won 67 per cent of them, another game high. That mark includes a sparkling 89 per cent success rate in the defensive zone.
