It took six games for the better team to win. You know, the reining Stanley Cup Champions? Six games to beat a team that didn’t even make the playoffs last year. Six games to beat a team that was over-loaded with injuries. Six games to beat the Ottawa Senators.
The Sens gave them one hell of a fight, that’s for sure. Everyone went into this series thinking about how easy it would be for the Penguins to take on the Senators. That’s not how it turned out though. The Senators fought for their lives after a couple of bad games in their own building. They put up a fight, gave it all they had, and I’m proud. I’m proud of my hometeam heros, no matter what the outcome and the end of the day is.
So here’s to you, Senators.
You gave them one hell of a series, and we’ll see you in October.
