Things Balance Out

I wrote about this on Twitter last night, but I’ve given it some more thought, and I think it bears repeating.  What if, in order to beat Ottawa, the Sabres first had to lose to the Leafs?  Those weird streaks of TOTAL dominance (Ottawa over the Sabres, and the Sabres over the Leafs), are uncannily similar, and personally, I think they’re somehow cosmically connected.

The price we’ve had to pay for the deeeeelightful dominance we’ve enjoyed over the Leafs is that we’ve had to suffer at the hands of the Sens.  The price the Senators have to pay for their dominance over us, is eternal and everlasting ickiness.

That’s my theory.

    Well, the Sens seem to not be able to beat the Leafs so besides their “ickiness” there is that.

    This is EXACTLY what I was thinking last night. In fact I’m more certain that we’ll beat the Sens next week than ever before.

    Sue, I was just thinking “well, that can only work if the Leafs dominate the Sens, so….” Thanks for saving me the trouble of looking up their record. And woohoo! We’re finally going to beat Ottawa next week!!!

    I hope you’re correct, but the familiar paranoia tends to be overwhelming. It doesn’t help that the Sens scored with approx. 7 seconds to go last night to rescue the two points to climb within 5 of the good guys.
