Sens' Boucher: Everyone 'on the planet' knows Pens are better team

Sens' Boucher: Everyone 'on the planet' knows Pens are better team

The Pittsburgh Penguins made a big statement on Sunday, crushing the Ottawa Senators by a lopsided 7-0 score to grab a big Game 5 win and a 3-2 series lead. There were plenty of talking points following the game, including why Senators coach Guy Boucher kept changing goalies during his teams dismantling, but the biggest (and the one which should have Sens fans worried) was that Boucher admitted that he thinks the Penguins are the better team.

The full quote, courtesy of NHL.com, goes into a few more specifics.

We know theyre a better team, Boucher said of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Everybody knows that on the planet. Theyre the Stanley Cup champions. Theyre the best team in the League. Thats no secret.

Thats not going to give fans too much confidence that the Senators can string together two wins to make the Stanley Cup Final. Boucher could have just said that the Penguins were the better team in Game 5, a statement which could have gone unsaid as the final score effectively tells the story. His comment sounds like hes giving up.
