Readers can access videos to each of the respective interviews by accessing the Sens TV page on the official Senators' website, but if you want to read a transcript of what was said, you've come to the right place.

When I wrote about the (partial) NHL Award announcements, there were a few awards that I wanted to discuss in further detail. One was the Adams Trophy for coach of the year. It was won by Paul MacLean of the Ottawa Senators.
