As they say, "it's all over but the crying." Yes, my beloved Senators lost out to Buffalo 4 games to 1 and missed another opportunity to advance in their quest for the Stanley Cup.
During the playoffs especially, my identity is wrapped up in being Mike Fisher's uncle. All I heard today was, "what happened to the Senators?" My response was to hand them a composite from articles and columns in today's Ottawa Sun.
I don't know what happened to the Senators but Mike Fisher showed up for every game and was consistent and determined throughout each shift he played. That's just the way Fish plays. All out!
Many have suggested that Mike should be the next Senator to wear the captain's "C" on his sweater. I think that's something that might happen down the road. He deserves it!
Anyhow, I'm proud of you Mike and so are countless other fans of yours here in the Peterborough area and, of course, in the nation's capital. It must have been hard to leave Scotiabank Place last night but you played your heart out!
Thanks for making us all proud, Little Fish!
