(A1) Montreal Canadiens vs (W1) Ottawa Senators
No team is hotter entering the playoffs than the Ottawa Senators. They have gone an astounding 21-3-4 over the past 28 games and have essentially been playing playoff hockey since February. Even with all of that momentum the Senators are going to have a tough time taking four games off of
Price the Canadiens. The Canadiens will go as far as their all-world netminder will take them. The team in front of Price has a few glaring flaws, chief among them being a lack of consistent offensive production, but he should be able to do just enough for the Canadiens to sneak past the red hot Senators.
Prediction: Canadiens in 7
