Uphill Battle

from Chris Stevenson of the Ottawa Sun,

The Senators might have won at least three games in a row on 11 separate occasions this year, but the sticking point in doing it a 12th time is none of those three-game streaks were against the Anaheim Ducks.
Also working against the Senators digging out of a 3-1 hole in the Stanley Cup final—it would be only the second time a team has done it—is, well, the Senators are the other team.
They are exactly where they deserve to be in this Stanley Cup final because they have managed to play but four good periods in four games and when you are playing in June, that ratio means your summer will be spent lowering your handicap and wondering what if, not raising the Stanley Cup and relishing what was.
