Canadiens-Senators, despite featuring two Canadian teams from the same difference, doesn’t have the same reputation as a rivalry as, say, Maple Leafs-Canadiens. That might change after Sunday night in Ottawa.
The Sens and the Habs locked horns in a wild affair that the Sens ended up winning 6-1. The game unraveled quickly for Montreal midway through the third, and that’s when things got really out of hand. When it was all said and done, the two teams combined for 53 penalties totaling 236 penalty minutes. In the third period alone, the two teams combined for 40 penalties and 210 PIMs.
The high point of that came at 7:04 of the third period after Ottawa had just scored to make it 4-1. With the game out of reach, and frustrations mounting, Montreal’s Ryan White took a two-handed slash to the legs of Zack Smith. From there, all hell broke lose. The two teams engaged in a wild line brawl that left sticks and gloves all over the ice.
