9/17/15 - They surprised many around the league when they pushed their way into the postseason last year, but the Ottawa Senators know they’re no fluke. After taking the Montreal Canadiens to six games in the first round, the Senators were sent packing, doomed to another summer of watching the final rounds from home. It was announced on Thursday that Sens owner Eugene Melnyk has placed Daniel Alfredsson in the role of senior advisor of hockey operations, a move which figures to have ripple effects throughout the organization for 2015 and beyond. Will the impact be positive, or will Ottawa once again find themselves scrapping for a Wild Card berth? Pick up preseason tickets now and get your first look at this year’s Senators!

However, the Senators took the series 3-1 including both games on their home ice. Can they steal a game in Montreal to earn the advantage in the playoff opener? They’ll have to get a few goals past Carey Price if they wish to succeed, and will count on Erik Karlsson’s outstanding two-way play to help guide them to a win.
