Sens Game From Portland

Posted in hockey at 10:28 pm by Mike Milinkovich

I’ve been traveling this week and was in Portland for the first Sens playoff game. It really sucked to be away, but I ended up getting very lucky. My colleague Anne recommended Claudia’s as a good bar to go to watch the game, and she was very right. I had a great time!

As it turned out, there was a small but feisty contingent of ex-Ottawans who now live in Portland who use Claudia’s as their Sens-watching HQ. So thanks to Tom, Jeremy, and Kelly for helping me cheer on the Sens to a kick-ass series opener.

The Sens played a very convincing game. They took aways the Penguins time and space through their trademark combination of a super-strong forecheck (Schubert!) and a steady, physical defence (Phillips, Volchenkov). I wonder why the two Penguins fans in the bar left early? 🙂
