The Sainted Sens: No Laughing Matter

If you were to believe Alex Ovechkin (and we have no reason not to), the Senators were making less than flattering comments ^ about the Capitals on Monday when they strode out to a quick 3-0 lead. Needless to say the highly motivated bunch in Washington ended up winning the game in OT, 4-3.

For those with a long memory for anything Sens-related (I am seeking treatment), this is not the first time they have been accused of mocking another team. Last season, it was the Habs they were deriding during their early season run.

Seriously, how can a team that hasn't won anything, ever, and this season has only five wins, three of them 'gimmes' against the Leafs, laugh at anything or anyone? The Senators are quickly getting a reputation as the laziest bunch in the league, and if Mr. Ovechkin is to be believed, they will also have a reputation as the smuggest. Yes, that is a word.

Here's hoping they get pounded by the Thrashers tonight.
