Last nights game between Ottawa and Buffalo at the Corel Centre was a thing of beauty, if you're a Sens fan that is. On the other hand, if you find yourself in the Sabres camp, I'd just like to send you my deepest sympathies.

Honestly, the 5-0 final score does not truly reflect the game on the ice. If it wasn't for the goaltending of Ryan Miller, for Buffalo, and especially Dominik Hasek, for Ottawa, the score would have been much closer to 10-2. That is to say that while Buffalo occasionally got their game together and made some good plays, they were thoroughly undressed by the Sens. The number of short handed breakaways by Havlet alone (though sadly, only one resulted in a goal) does well to illustrate how much the Sens were outplaying their opponents.

BTW, the title of this post has to do with the Pizza Pizza (a large Canadian franchise) giveaway in which every time the Sens win a game with 5 goals or more, everyone with a ticket to that game gets a free slice of pizza.

All in all, a great home opener.
