Ottawa has opened the door and it is being held ajar. They need just one more victory to get to their first ever Stanley Cup Final in the modern era! My lord is this really happening? The Sens are now up by 3 games to none against the fancied Buffalo Sabres. At the start of the playoffs my head would have picked either the Anaheim Ducks or the Sabres to win the Cup even though my heart always choses Ottawa, since 2000. But Ottawa has been seemingly in a hurry to erase past years of underplaying in the playoffs and rush past their opponents in as little time as possible. 5 games were enough for both the Devils & the Penguins. Can they wrap up the series win in game 4 in Ottawa in front of their own home crowd? That would be cool. A lone goal by captain Daniel Alfredsson was enough to grant the Sens the win, both goalies playing at their best. Ottawa’s Emery only had 15 shots to save to earn his 3rd shut off in this playoffs. This could be the year. GO SENS GO!
