The Ottawa Senators surprised many people when they made the playoffs last season despite injuries to several of the team’s best players.
With good coaching, stellar goaltending and a physical style of hockey that’s hard to play against, the Senators captured the seventh seed in the 2013 Eastern Conference playoffs, but were eliminated in the second round by Pittsburgh.
The 2013-14 season hasn’t started as well as the Senators would have liked. They are in sixth place in the Atlantic Division with 18 points, but a win over the rival Bruins would be a major confidence boost for this young team.
