Leafs vs. Sens: Don't Believe the Hype?

I'm not really sure what to make of tonight's tilt in Kanata. We've all seen this before, where fans and media alike get all lathered up about the second game of a home and home tilt, only to see a game that is usually more disappointing than the Superbowl always is.

I'm not sure this is the case tonight... the way the game ended in Toronto, and the way the barbs have been flying in the local rags, leads me to believe we may actually see some fireworks tonight.

For starters, I think it is all but assured that McGratton and Belak will be dancing (assuming of course that Belak is actually in the lineup). As for Chris Neil, people would naturally assume that he and Tucker might have a go, but don't be surprised to see Big Hal take him on. The two have ^ a history ^, so don't be shocked if it happens tonight.

If the game is really as wild as some are predicting, expect Tucker and Fisher to tangle, with Fisher having a huge advantage, IMO.

Either way, I will be watching the game with a Sens 'fan' this evening (he is of the third variety, having at one time been a Habs fan), so it should be an interesting time!

Man I hope it's the latter and the players' actions match the fans' desire for fights.

Hopefully Gill does a better job than in his previous fights and dummies Neil. I almost hate him more than Bozo the clown.
